Magic Make: Rose Petal Perfume

Flower Belle's Rose Petal Perfume

Flower Belle’s Rose Petal Perfume

As the end of summer draws near, the flowers in the garden are starting to fade and Flower Belle is working hard with her Special Watering Can and magic dust to keep your gardens looking beautiful for as long as possible.

One of her favourite flowers is roses. She loves them because they come in so many different colours and styles – some grow in bushes, some climb up walls, some are big and frilly, some are small and dainty. But her favourite roses have beautiful scents, too – and she likes to collect their petals and make sweet perfume, so she can smell them for just a little bit longer.

Lots of lovely rose petals

Would you like to make Flower Belle’s Rose Petal Perfume? Here’s how to do it – and you can print out her pretty perfume labels, too!

Make Rose Petal Perfume

You need:

A big handful of rose petals
Sieve
100ml water
Saucepan
Large bowl
Plastic bottle
Flower Belle’s special label

  • Put the rose petals in a sieve and rinse them under cold water to wash off any bugs or dirt.
  • Pour 100ml water into a saucepan and slowly bring it to the boil. Add the rose petals to the pan and let them simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Place the sieve over a large bowl and pour the contents of the saucepan into the sieve.
  • Throw the mushy petals away and let the bowl of rose water cool down to room temperature.
  • Over the sink, pour the rose water into a clean plastic bottle and screw on the lid.
  • Download our lovely Flower Belle labels (you can design your own or use her finished one), cut one out and glue it to the bottle.
  • You can keep your Rose Petal Perfume in the fridge for up to a week and use it to remind you of beautiful roses in a summer garden.

We hope you all smell sweet as roses for the rest of the week! Love and magic dust from the Magic Belles in Bellevue xxx
