It’s raining and cold at Katoomba this morning. It’s the last day of the school holidays, and with no clients booked in I’m making the most of the homely crafty atmosphere. If I wasn’t fasting I’d be making biscuits and drinking hot chocolate so instead I decided to use the final Autumn flush of the roses and make some rose oil which I use in my Red Rose Cleanser.
The fragrance of the roses is in the petals, and if you pick them at the height of their beauty, place in a glass container and cover with quality extra virgin olive oil and warm them, either in the sun or as I have over the hearth, in a week or two all the fragrance and energy of the roses will have transferred to the oil.
This oil is my absolute favourite and if I’m feeling a bit tired and weary, anointing myself generously with Rose oil just seems to make everything that bit better.
