Petal Perfume

Eden loves the 'Princess Poppy' book series at the moment, and over the last few weeks she's been playing at making petal perfume (a reference from one of the books). So I thought she'd love it if we made our own petal perfume, using flowers from the garden and a kettle of very hot water. 
First we picked our petals:

We collected them in a jar:

When we had nearly a full jar, I poured some hot water in, and we stirred it, and left for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally

Then we used a sieve to strain off the petals, leaving the fragranced water in a clean jar below

Having a smell afterwards

We decorated the jar to finish

Then Eden very sweetly said she wanted it to be a present for Daddy
