Attar of roses means the volatile oil contained inside the fresh petals. It is used in making rose water and scented perfumes. Use only fresh petals that have been picked in the morning after the dew has evaporated but before the strong afternoon sun has warmed them:)

- 1Pat dry the rose petals and leaves between a layer of cotton towels or paper towels.

- 4Repeat until the crock or jar is full.
- 5Cover the container tightly.
- 6Place in a cool and dark place for 3-6 weeks.
- 7The salt extracts the moisture from the petals and leaves, which should collect in the bottom of your jar.
- 8Strain the liquid through a coffee filter or several layers of cheesecloth.
- 9This is the wonderful scented attar of roses for you.
