Pagan Crafting

I'm infusing rose petal oil in this conveniently shaped bottle for Freda devotionals.


  1. beautiful bottle - I've got a thing for them. :-)

  2. Pretty! I've a thing for colored glass, too. Do you use fresh, or dried rose petals for your oil? I'd like to do something like this for my February esbat.

  3. I'm using dried petals for this particular oil. Don't quote me on this but I definitely have read before that when infusing your own oils it's actually best to use dried plant matter. (Somehow this makes sense to me, it seems like dried plants would allow the oil to permeate better than a water-holding plant.) When I make herbal teas I also prefer the herbs to be dry, as I find it makes a stronger/darker brew that way.
