DIY Rose Petal Perfume

Why fork out for pricey perfume when you can make your own at home for less!


120ml Vodka 80 or 100 proof
600ml Distilled water


Place your petals and a sprinkle of rose buds into the bottom of a clean glass mason jar, pour the vodka over the petals, cover and leave for 24 hours.

Squish the petals with a wooden spoon, tip in the water, cover and leave for 4 to 7 days in a dark place. Make sure you take it out once a day and mix and pulverise the petals.

Strain the mixture into a glass perfume bottle or two, shake before you spray and store in the fridge.
