How To Make Rose Oil

Post by AlleyRose on Thu Jul 10, 2014 10:18 pm

1) find amazing, vibrant beach roses - on a dry, sunny day ~ mid afternoon is the best time to gather - the petals will be thoroughly dry
2) breathe in outrageous fragrance and feel the gratitude!!
3) have clean dry jars or a dry paper bag
4) fill the jars loosely to the top with rose petals
5) if you only have a bag ~ harvest petals and when you get home you can transfer to jars
6) place jars on a flat surface, slowly pour olive oil over the petals, filling in all the spaces
7) fill to nearly the top, stop and use a chopstick or butter knife to wiggle the petals all around to release air pockets trapped... when there are no more air bubbles
Cool continue pouring oil to the top~ making sure all plant material is under the oil!! cap loosely
9) store in a cool, dark spot - check every few days at first to ensure that all plant material stays under the surface of the oil and that you don't have any mold starting to grow.
10) you may need to add a small amount of oil to keep the jar topped off as the oil can tend to ooze out from the top a bit ( sometimes) 
11) if there is any mold - scoop it up along with plant material all around it - compost and add fresh oil to the top again...
12) let soak for several months - 
13) strain using cheese cloth ~ compost plant material and jar the strained oil. 
14) Make sure to clearly label the jar and store in a cool place
15) i do this same process with all plants and flowers - to eventually make awesome heal all medicinal salves - that is another story
16) My favorite sore/ tired muscle rub is rose oil and st.john's wort oil mixed together with a little rescue remedy and some lavender essential oil...
ahhhhhhhhhh- it helps stiff necks, and sore everything really....( a little goes a long way)
17) have fun in the roses - it helps all maladies of mind, heart, body and soul!! 
18) roses nourish and support us in amazing and unique ways ~ read all about it!!!
Sending Love to all of you and to all the roses!! xoxooxox
