Easy Flower Water
Here's the easiest way to make a fresh flower water!
8 oz. distilled or de-ionized water
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon essential oil or blend. (Do not use fragrance oils.)
1/4 teaspoon potassium sorbate granules
Blend materials together in a UV resistant (colored) glass bottle or jar and store in a cool, dry place, such a refrigerator, for about 4 weeks. Shake or agitate liquid 3 to 5 times weekly. When sufficiently aged, strain water through unbleached coffee filters and decant into glass bottles. Shelf life is approximately 12 months when preserved.
