GREEN UP YOUR GAFF

RUBBIN' IT IN

23rd May 2018

Words by Jessica Peace

So, the gate is done and we can stop bangin’ on after one last look at our fave geranium offering - oil.

Here’s how to make it. You’re welcome.

Choose your scented geranium, we like Pelargonium 'Citronella' as it tells mosquitos to F’ off; P. 'Lemon Fancy' for citrus flava and P.'Attar of Roses' - you get the picture.

Grab a fist full of petals and give ‘em a bit of a rub before popping them in a jar.

Choose an unscented oil - grapeseed is cheap and will do the trick, cover your petals.

Screw your lid down and whack in a sunny spot.

Leave for a week.

Strain and throw in another fistful - lid, leave.

Repeat for 5 weeks - Wa laa! Rub it all over (well, steady on.)
