Rose Petal Dye and Rosewater Hydrosol
Rose is wonderful for cleansing, hydrating, as well as for headaches and even tired eyes. Distilling organic red rose petals can work beautifully for an antique blush-pink hue.
When done with only petals, clean silk, and no additional mordants or modifiers the distilled rose water can also be used as a healing hydrosol. As there are no harsh ingredients and only rose petals in this color recipe you can double the duty with your color creation. The most aromatic hydrosols are made from roses that are organic and in season when they are most fragrant. You can also use dried organic rose petals that have been harvested at their peak as well.
