  4. nice thing is easy availability of products and less time consuming…keep on tellin things like this..thx

  5. Wow..brilliant..wil surely try this..
    1 doubt- Do u add glycerin after the water cools down? It seems to crystallize otherwise..

  6. Guys be careful as some of the roses available at floral shops have RED COLOUR given to it by putting their stems in coloured water so the rose absorbs this colour water making in look redder ( you may have notice they make the lilies blue at floral shops, same way they do that to roses), which is harmful to the skin, so use rose petals from your garden or a known persons…
