Alleviating depression, lifting bad moods and cleansing the blood – regular rose petals, part of a common plant that grows in every garden, can do all that! Try this fantastic rose syrup.
- 4 handfuls of pink rose petals
- 34Fl oz. / 1 l. water
- Juice of half a lemon
- 17 Fl oz. / 1⁄2 l. honey
Put the washed rose petals into a suitable container. Pour boiling water over it and let it infuse for 24 hours. Then decant and warm the liquid up – but to no more than 140°F / 60°C. Add lemon and honey. Mix it all very diligently and pour the finished syrup into a bottle. It tastes great with sparkling water and a slice of lemon.
