Over the past year, I’ve become fascinated with the medicinal and healing benefits of plants and how they can play a bigger role in my overall wellness.
The spark of interest led to research which eventually led to buying a few high-impact flowers and herbs to experiment with. So far, I’ve made salves, elixirs, and healing body oils and bath salts. But the first floral recipe that I tried was for a floral beauty water. What can I say? It called to me. The presentation is absolutely gorgeous, it’s easy to make, and the list of ingredients sounds like a special edition Jo Malone candle. All you need is Citrus peels, Rose petals, Calendula, Chamomile, Lavender, Hibiscus and still or sparkling water.
I got the dry floral ingredients from Raven Moon Emporium on Etsy. The shop is well stocked, orders ship quickly, and almost everything they sell is USDA certified organic.
I used this recipe for floral-infused beauty water by Rachelle Robinett, herbalist and founder of Supernatural.
