Create your own floral water !
- Boil water (preferably deionized)
- Add any part of the plant of your interest: mint leaves, rose buds, roots (cut in small pieces)… Keep it boiling between 10 and 30 minutes, according to the size and hardness of the piece
- Filter, and recover the water
- Pour it in a sterile packaging: as it is sterile – you can store it for 1 year at room temperature.
For heat-sensitive actives, infuse the parts in a water at 50-80°C, during an extended period of time. The longer and harsher the heat treatment, the more active compounds will be destroyed.
