Hi, I'm Stephanie from and I'm going to show you how to make perfume from a flower. First thing you're going to need is a jar. This is just an ordinary glass jar with a top and you'll want to have one that is just enough to fit the flowers that you have. So, you'll need a little bit of flowers, and right now I'm demonstrating with roses, and you'll also need EverClear. EverClear is a very high proof alcohol and the higher the proof the better for making your perfume. The alcohol actually absorbs the essential oils from the flower and that's what creates the scent. So, what I'm going to do is pack this little jar full of the flowers, and you'll want to pack as many into them as you can fit. Once you have the flowers in your jar, then you're going to cover it with the EverClear and then you're going to want to let it sit for about twenty four to forty eight hours and then it will look something like this. And, when you have your tincture ready, this is called a tincture, then you filter it with a coffee filter, and the remaining alcohol is what we call the tincture, and that can be worn alone as a perfume or you can mix it with other tinctures and other essential oils to create your final perfume that you can bottle.
