  • 5 drops rose essential oil

Tips:

  • Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) contains natural mucilaginous compounds, which make it great for softening skin and soothing irritations. The chopped dried root is available at herbalists' shops and online herb stores.
  • Rose water is commonly used in the Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Indian and North African cuisine, so look for bottles of this fragrant essence at specialty grocery stores.
  • Use rose and poppy petals from plants that have not been sprayed with herbicides or fungicides.
