Ruled by Venus & the Element Water, Rose has always been associated with love. Deities associated with Rose are Hathor, Hulda, Eros, Cupid, Demeter, Isis, Adonis, Harpocrates & Aurora.
Rose also has the power to heal & calm (along with increasing psychic strength, divination, protection & luck).
My Rose Glycerite was made with the intention to heal of past wounds inflicted by me & others, so it has been infused with the intention of self-love.
First, I placed a handful of dried red roses into a small jar, then I covered them with vegetable glycerine & put in a small, rose quartz bead.
Next, I cast sacred space around the Love Altar that resides in our bedroom, placing the potion on the altar. After lighting the candles, I placed a rose quartz generator on top of the jar.
Finally, I opened the jar & chanted these words directly into the potion. With every inhale, I experienced the wonderful fragrance of roses.
Lifting the circle, at the end, I felt a deep peace.
The jar of Rose Glycerite will need to sit for 4-6 weeks under the generator quartz, in a dark place to mature. Each day, I will open the jar, stir the mixture & chant love into the potion. At the end of maturation time, I will decant the concoction into an amber or blue vial, adding a tablespoon of brandy as an additional preservative.
Of course, on the 19th, I will be taking my new creation out under the Full Moon!
Once it is mature, Rose Glycerite has amazing heart-healing (emotional) properties. It is especially wonderful for self-forgiveness & for overcoming childhood traumas. You only need a drop or two & it can be taken directly on the tongue or placed into a bottle of water for sipping.
Wild & Bright Blessings!
