2 cups distilled water
1/4 cup vodka
10 drops rose oil
1/2 cup fresh, deep-red rose petals
Measure the distilled water into a thoroughly-cleaned mixing bottle. Add the vodka. Mix in the flowers so that they are completely wet. Add the oil.
Let the mixture stand in a covered bottle in a cool, dark place for one week to allow the scent to age. If you like, you can leave the petals in the mixture for a pretty visual effect.
