Mixing things together to create something practical and useful is such a joyful pastime to me, and I’m always looking for an opportunity to create something new out of things found in nature. One part of nature that always contributes to a fragrant healing potion is flowers. Like most, I’m head over heels with flowers for more reasons than one — and one of those reasons is that they can do wonders for our skin, soul and overall well-being.
Whether you believe in magic potions or not, it can be so therapeutic and fun to grab some mason jars, rose petals and dried herbs to make something enchanting, beautiful and witch-approved. Check out three awesome potions you can make using natural ingredients to improve your life, fulfill a certain wish or eliminate harsh chemicals from your beauty routine:
