How to make Peony water


It’s peony season and that means….peony everything. I made some peony water, it’s great for the skin, and the smell is heavenly. If you want to make your own, here are the steps:

  • Put petals in a pot

  • Cover the pot with water

  • Gently heat for 20 minutes, do not boil

  • Remove from stove and let cool to room temp

  • Strain petals from water

  • If you want, add vodka or witch hazel to preserve

    If you want to add essential oils to your water- clove, jasmine, lemon, rose, and lavender all blend well with peony.

    Until next time, Ava
