    List of Ingredients

    Flower petals
    Sweet almond or olive oil


    Fill a large wide-mouth jar with petals from your favorite garden
    flowers (such as lilac, gardenia, rose, jasmine, lavender) or the
    remains of a bouquet. Heat just enough sweet almond or olive oil to
    cover the petals. Close the jar and put it in the sun or as warm a
    place as possible. Heat helps activate the fragrance. Leave it at
    least three days.

    Strain the petals out and you will have a wonderful smelling oil. If
    you would like to further strengthen the scent, add a few drops of
    any essential floral oil that will work with the scent you have
    developed. When the scent is to your liking, pour it into an amber
    bottle and refrigerate.
