How To Burn Rose Petals
Here is the complete process explained in detail on how to burn rose petals:
1. Select roses with petals you would like to use.
Choose roses that are sun-dried, not frozen, and have petals that are pliable and easy to handle. Avoid roses that have been sprayed with insecticides or other chemicals, as these will affect the taste of the tea.
2. Step 2
2. Carefully remove the petals from the rose stems by hand.
3. Step 3
3. Place a layer of petals in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Add just enough water to cover them (about 2 cups). Stir occasionally until they are completely wilted and release their color into the water (about 20 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool slightly before straining out flowers through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a large bowl or pitcher; discard flowers and save liquid for steeping tea.
4. Step 4
4. Pour 4 cups boiling water over the wilted petal mixture in bowl or pitcher; steep for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to release more flavor from petals into liquid; strain again through sieve or cheesecloth back into saucepan (if using). Add sugar, if desired, and stir until dissolved; bring to simmer over medium heat; continue simmering for about 5 minutes longer to further enhance flavors in tea (if using).
Remove from heat and let cool slightly before serving hot or transferring to airtight containers for storage in refrigerator for up to 3 days (refrigerate any leftover tea within 24 hours) or freezer for up to 6 months (freeze any leftovers within 24 hours); reheat before serving each time you wish to enjoy it hot again. Enjoy!

How do you dry rose petals at home?
I have been drying rose petals at home for a while now, and I am happy to say that I have never had the problem of moldy or rotten petals.
Here are some things you can do to dry rose petals at home:
1. Dry Rose Petals in Sunlight
The best way to dry rose petals is to leave them out in the sunlight for about two weeks. This will help them retain their color and fragrance. However, if you live in a humid area, it may take longer than two weeks for your petals to dry completely. In this case, you can use a dehydrator instead of leaving them out in the sun.
2. Dry Rose Petals Using a Dehydrator
If you don’t have enough time to leave your rose petals out in the sun or if you live in an area with high humidity, then using a dehydrator is another option for drying rose petals at home. You can purchase one from most hardware stores or online for about $25 – $50 (depending on its size).
A small one should be sufficient for drying up to 2 pounds of dried flowers and herbs at once. To use it, simply follow the instructions included with your dehydrator and set it to low heat until all moisture has evaporated from the rose petal pieces. Be sure not to overheat it as this will cause your dried roses to lose their color and fragrance! The
How do you dry rose petals for smoking?
Drying is the most important part of preparing rose petals for smoking. You want to dry them until they are brittle and break easily. If you don’t dry them enough, they will be too wet to burn and will simply turn into a mushy mess when you try to smoke them. If you dry them too much, they will be so brittle that they will crumble apart before you get a chance to smoke them.
To dry your rose petals, spread the petals out on a paper towel or other absorbent surface. Then place another paper towel on top of the rose petals and press down gently with your hands or another flat object (like a book). Leave the rose petals in this position for about 24 hours. After 24 hours have passed, remove the top paper towel and repeat the process until your rose petals are completely dried out and brittle.
How do you store dried rose petals?
Once your rose petals are completely dried out, store them in an airtight container like a mason jar or Ziploc baggie. Make sure that you keep your container in a cool dark place where it is protected from moisture and sunlight! Storing your dried rose petal stash correctly will help keep it fresh for as long as possible!
