Rose Petal Honey

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

Rose Petal Honey

If you’ve been following my work for a bit, you know that I like to incorporate rose petals into my dabbles as much as possible. In addition to wooing you with their intoxicating scent, rose petals help to soothe and cleanse the skin and are known to support your internal digestion and liver with a boost of vitamin C and other vital nutrients.

And then, there’s honey - a beautiful, deliciously sweet gift from our beloved bees. My love affair with raw honey has been well-documented, as I truly believe it is nature’s precious medicine {and candy!}. Raw honey contains powerful healing enzymes, enhances absorption of nutrients in the body, and is super antioxidant.

This simple combination of rose petals and honey will add beauty and delight to your home. I like to add my rose honey to tea, drizzle over roast vegetables, and add it to homemade salad dressings {warning: old school post alert}.

Before we begin, I want to make a note about the quality of both your roses and your honey. While they are both readily available at your local grocery store, it is super important (both for your body and the future of their species) to grab the purest version you can. For roses, this means unsprayed (from the garden or a trusted source) and for honey, this means raw (unpasteurized) and local, if possible.

Rose Petal Honey

  • 1 glass jar of desired size (make sure it’s clean!)
  • 2 tbsp dried or fresh rose petals (I grab mine here)
  • Enough raw, local honey to fill your jar

Add rose petals to the jar, then pour the honey over the roses filling to the top. Using a wood spoon or a chopstick, stir to mix them together, and seal tight. Let sit for 2-4 weeks {to allow ingredients to infuse}, then it’s ready for use.
