  1. I can’t believe it is so simple.
    I have always loved rosewater, it is such a pretty fragrance,
    especially compared to all of the chemically junk available.
    I will definitely try this the next time my rose bush blooms.
    Great tutorial, very informative, and fun.friendship bracelet
