Fragrant Body

Use fresh fragrant flowers like roses, or strong dried flowers like lavender. Separate the petals and gently rinse them to remove pesticides. Pat dry with a towel. If you are using dried lavender, you do not need to wash it. Next, stuff as many petals as you can into the jar and then fill it to the rim with vodka. Close the jar tightly, shake and store in a place where children cannot reach it. This must sit for 10 days. If you don't have children, place the jar where it will receive full sunlight -- this will speed up the process by 5 days. Every day, shake it a little, and after 10 days, pour the liquid through a strainer and into a perfume jar. The perfume can be used on the body as a splash or in the bathtub. Keep in mind this has alcohol in it so please keep it away from children
