Things you Need to Create Flower Mists
The first step to creating mists is finding the right supplies. You would need –

The Process to Make the Scent
Now that we have gathered our supplies, let’s head on to making the scent –
- Separate all the flower petals from your gifted bouquet and wash them effectively with water. You can use any flowers that have been given, there is no hard and fast rule.
- Take the saucepan and put all the flower petals in. Keep the saucepan on flame and watch the flowers wilt for a few minutes. This helps the flowers release their scent.
- Add some water in a glass bowl, depending on the size of the spray bottle. Put the wilted flowers in the bowl and cover it. Leave overnight so that the scent is diffused.
- Strain this bowl of water into the spray bottle for collection.
- Add your favourite essential oil along with a few flower petals. This would give an aesthetic effect to the mist.
- Voila! You are all done.
