DARK MOON WILD ROSE LOVE ELIXIR
Wild Rose Love Elixir is a wonderful aphrodisiac that can be used in many ways. A few drops added to wine or used directly on the body can induce sexual pleasure. Experiment!
In addition to its sensual benefits, it can be used to ease itching & swelling of insect bites or taken internally under the tongue (60 drops) to ease stress and heal the emotional heart. It is also a wonderful sweetener in herbal teas.
- 1 Mason jar filled with Wild Rose petals
- Vodka or Brandy or Vegetable Glycerin
- Raw local honey
- 1 small ethically harvested rose quartz
HARVESTING WILD ROSES
Harvest your Wild Rose petals away from high traffic areas, obvious toxins, pesticides, and other unfavorable substances. If you can harvest during a morning dew, most excellent! Bring your Mason jar and harvest only what you need, stop when the jar is full of petals. Harvest with good intention and tell the roses how beautiful they are. ALWAYS leave an offering, such as wild birdseed.
MAKING THE ELIXIR
Allow your Wild Rose petals to dry overnight by laying them on a screen or towel. Fill the jar with your Wild Rose petals. Pour ¼ cup of raw honey over the petals, and fill ½ way with vodka or brandy. I prefer the lower proof alcohol on this elixir. If someone cannot have alcohol, glycerin is a lovely choice.
Holding the Rose Quartz in your left hand, visualize peace, love, and warmth flowing from your Heart Chakra and drop the Rose Quartz in with the Wild Rose Petals.
Remove air gaps by stirring with a butter knife. Continue filling the rest of the jar with vodka or brandy until it reaches the top. Be careful not to have any petals sticking above the alcohol.
Place in a cool dark place or in your refrigerator for 4 weeks. Shake at least once a day, repeating positive affirmations.
When ready, strain liquid from petals and place in dark dropper bottles or jar of choice.
