Ok, so after listening to this podcast :
and this podcast, and after consulting with my two beauty and home apothecary specialists, I set out with a basket and Pia to pick the roses off my Eglantyne Rose Bush.
The project? Rosewater & Aloe Face Mist … why? Dunno. Just because I felt like it! I also made a Lavender cleaning spray that I’m addicted to, but please don’t buy the Dollar Store Spray bottles, they leak.
The color is dark (because I used the boiling liquid) and I didn’t keep a lid on (meaning that all the real rosewater actually evaporated)… See where I’m going with this? It was an almost total fail. So the end product is far from what I had intended it to be, but it’s definitely made me want to try again- which is shocking if you know me. If something doesn’t turn out EXACTLY like I had intended it to, it usually gets tossed. Ask me about my braided carpet….
Projected Happiness with End Product: 18/10
Actual Happiness with End Product: 1/10
Projected Happiness during Process: 4/10 (I don’t actually like the MAKING part of most things)
Actual Happiness during Process: 8/10
Now, all I need to do is wait for more roses to grow!
Happy Monday everyone! YAY it’s JUNE!!
