Peony petalsI love my peonies, both their scent and visual beauty. They are so large and aromatic! I decided to save their scent for future days to enjoy! By putting spent petals in warm water and heating, you will release their lovely scent into the water. You can then use it as a face splash or room refreshener for months to come!
