Making Natural Perfume Update

The full moon in Capricorn thunder moon has been busy, of course!  The flowers that have been macerating for perfume from my blog a month ago, that I’d made during the Sun Venus transit,

I filtered and pressed the petal pulp out from the luscious liquid yesterday during the full moon. It was a wonderful surprise to smell those long-lost smells of spring. The anticipation was well worth it!

I was so impressed with the rose one, I tinctured more. I used pink roses this time because of their peak bloom, and wonderful strong odour.  I wonder if it will give me a light pink liquid along with its divine aroma. The bees certainly love it!

The rose tincture is edible, and I will use it internally as delicious medicine, as well as externally for perfume.

The Dianthus looks and smells like grape juice, which is a far cry from my white chocolate wishes, but I will still use it. If all else it will become an air freshener and cleaning product.

The Peony is very subtle in smell, and next time I will use more petals, they are so delicate.

The Lilac is strong, but next time I will use all varieties I have, which is four, to see which one is the best.

 

I have essential oils in tincture, and I am looking forward to creating perfume blend alchemy with these lovely beauties!

Stay tuned to see how they turn out!
