Aren’t these petals beautiful? They were super easy to use in making an infused oil too!
I filled two eight ounce mason jars ¾ full with rose petals and then filled them both with organic olive oil. I set both jars in my sunny window sill to steep/infuse for 14 days.
After checking them several times during the process (to make sure there were no air bubbles or mold), I decanted them and was left with this beautiful and fragrant rose petal infused oil.

The oil feels so luxurious and leaves a light fruity rose scent on the skin. It’s filled with all the beneficial oils and properties from the rose petals. Rose petals are anti bacterial/microbial and also have a calming effect.
What do you think I should make with this oil? Salve? Lotion? Soap? Moisturizer? Something else? Tell me what you’d make in the comment section and if I chose your product, you get it free!
P.S. The rose petals came from my garden, which is pesticide free and fed only organic rose food.
