Make Your Own Fairy Water

Fairy Water

Use this fairy water out in the garden as well as using it as an astringent and in the bath! Sprinkle a few drops here and there along with some glitter! If that doesn’t make the wee ones want to visit your yard, nothing will.

1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup fresh red rose petals
1/4 cup mint leaves
1/8 cup sage leaves
1/2 cup rose water

Gently heat vinegar and pour over rose petals and mint and sage leaves. Place in a covered jar and let stand, shaking daily, for 2 weeks. Decant and strain the mixture. Add rose water to the vinegar.

Decant into decorative bottles.

NOTES: Vinegar-based floral waters make fine astringents for your face and also may be added to bath water. Use as a refreshing after bath splash, spirits for an air freshener, or uncover and let the
fragrance refresh a room.
