11 Things to do with Dried Rose Petals | ADelightfulHome.com

For some unknown reason, I wanted to try making things with dried roses. Something about them seems so beautiful and luxurious. Plus, I love the way dried roses look. Rustic style is always my favorite.

When I finally took the plunge and ordered some dried roses, I ordered a large amount. Since then, I've been making all kinds of fun stuff with dried roses. Today I'm going to share some of them with you.

I purchased my dried roses from Mountain Rose Herbs. They are also available on Amazon.

You could dry your own roses if you like. Just be sure they have not been sprayed with any type of insecticide or chemical.

Here are 11 things you can make with dried roses:

ROSE WATER
Rose Water is easy to make and can be used as a facial toner, and to freshen sheets, or clothing. Find out how to make it here.

ROSE OIL
Infuse oil with dried roses by filling a jar 2/3 full with dried roses and pouring olive oil over the top covering the roses with about 1 inch of extra oil. Close tightly with lid and leave to infuse for 2 to 3 week. Strain out the herbs and pour rose-infused oil into a clean jar.

Use as a lotion, as part of a body wash, as the base of a salve, or in homemade soap.

ROSE PETAL ICE CUBES


Rose petal ice cubes

Rose petal ice cubes are made by filling ice cube trays 3/4 full with water, then freezing. Placing one fresh rose petal over the cube and pour an extra teaspoon of water on top. See specific instructions here.

POTPOURRI
Rose petals are frequently featured in potpourri, and for good reason, they keep their color and scent a long time.

This Lavender-Rose potpourri looks wonderful.

ROSE BATH TEA

Roses are a great addition to bath tea. The create a lovely scent that is luxurious and relaxing. I like to combine them with chamomile to make Rose and Chamomile Bath Tea Bags.

ROSE AND CLAY FACE MASK
Mix 2 teaspoons white clay with 1 teaspoon dried roses, ground or powdered. Add enough water to form a paste. Spread over the face, avoiding the eyes. Leave on for 15 minutes before removing with warm water and a wash cloth.

Find more DIY, all-natural face mask recipes in my eBook: DIY Face Masks and Scrubs

FACIAL STEAM
Roses add a pampered feeling to any facial steam. Sprinkle some in hot water before doing a facial steam, or mix with other herbs, such as in this Rose, Chamomile, and Lavender Facial Steam.

ROSE SACHETS FOR DRAWERS
Fill muslin bags with dried roses and place in drawers to add a fresh scent.

USE IN BODY WASH
I created a simple Rose and Lemon Body Wash, but roses could be combined with other scents to make everyday bathing a little more special.

ROSE SLEEP PILLOW
Sleep pillows are often made with chamomile or lavender, but roses can be added to the mix too. They provide a nice floral fragrance.

USE ROSES TO FLAVOR KOMBUCHA
Dried roses are a great addition to kombucha. To flavor kombucha, rose petals should be added to the second ferment. Add 1 tablespoon of dried rose petals to about 3-4 cups of kombucha (after it's first ferment). Once the second ferment is complete, strain out the roses.

MORE TO MAKE. . .
I recently discovered this wonderful book: Things to Do with Roses by Jan Berry of the Nerdy Farm Wife.

So now I have even more ideas for making things with roses!

I always gather the rose petals from my garden after deadheading. The roses from some bouquets are good too.

Wonderful ideas..

Elspeth, aren't roses one of your favorites?  I want to try the rose petal ice cubes, maybe a few others.
