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.)
