Since I read here that the ‘petals of a geranium or a rose will also slightly colour the cheeks’ I was curious if I could make natural powdered blush with fresh rose petals.
I gathered some pink roses and put the fresh rose petals into a mortar.
Then I added some starch and ground both together.
The blush had a beautiful color, and smelled wonderful like fresh roses. However, the blush was still too damp to be used because of the fresh rose petals.
But after some hours of drying the beautiful pink color was gone. But maybe I could still use it as face powder.
Update: I made the rose petal blush again and found a solution how to retain the pretty pink color of the blush. I also made raw rose petal jam with freshly gathered roses.
