It's fun and often remarkably easy to make your own potions and lotions and this Rose Fairy Perfume is no exception. It requires one or two very fragrant roses (any variety), whose beauty will be sacrificed to make this special perfume.

A Jar of Fairy Perfume


Time: 10 minutes
Age: 5-10's
Level: Easy

Our very own roses


Materials
Handful of Rose petals
Handful of lavender leaves/flowers (optional)
1 glass jar
1 cup filtered water
Tea strainer



fairy
Pull all the petals off the flower


Method
Use some scissors to pick your roses, being careful not to prick your fingers on the sharp thorns.
Next, pull all the petals off the rose flowers and lavender flowers (optional), rinse very gently (to remove any unwanted dirt) and place in an ordinary glass jar.
Fill the glass jar with filtered water.

Petals infusing in a glass jar


Shake your jar for one minute, then leave the petals to infuse in the sun (if possible) on a window ledge for one week, shaking occasionally.
After one week, you can strain the petals away from the water and put your special perfume in it's own bottle. We left a few rose petals in the perfume bottle to make it look "flowery". It should smell sweet and be fit for use by any nearby fairies or princesses.
Maybe tie your bottle up with a ribbon and give some Rose Fairy Perfume to a good friend or to mum or grandma as a hand made present?

is there any ideas that you think i would enjoy
sounds easy and fun

Natasha, it is indeed a maple syrup bottle and I love your idea to add glitter. Definitely worth a try. Thank you.

This is really sweet Lucy. I know I would have loved making this as a kid, I used to always make 'potions' in the backyard using water and flower petals.

Do you reckon you could add glitter to this? Just to give it that extra special fairy touch?

(P.s. Is that a maple sauce bottle? It makes a great little perfume holder) :)
