Last week I wrote about making my own cologne from plants in flowers in my yard, including lavender, lemon balm and rose petals. The foliage and flowers steeped in vodka and water for about 10 days. Then the moment of truth arrived. I strained the mixture into a spray bottle and spritzed it onto my skin. It smelled like … nothing. Even though it smells good in the bottle—sweet and a bit citrusy—it must not be concentrated enough to leave any scent on my skin.
So I guess this recipe goes in the DIY beauty recipe scrap heap along with this one.
