Instructions

  1. 1

    Spread out the rose petals onto a plate. Place them on the countertop for three days, as drying the petals will help the freezer-preservation process. It is important that you do not let your petals come into contact with water or any moist materials while they are airing out on the counter.

  2. 2

    Place your rose petals into a microwave oven for two minutes. The microwave helps eliminate excess moisture that will help the rose petals preserve better in the freezer.

  3. 3

    Allow the rose petals to sit on the counter for 5 minutes to cool down.

  4. 4

    Gently place the rose petals into an airtight container or sealable plastic bag.

  5. 5

    Place the rose petals into the freezer. Rose petals will last in your freezer for as long as you wish to keep them there.

Tips and warnings

  • Use your frozen roses for special occasions. Remove them from the freezer and sprinkle them on an elegant table to complement a centerpiece for a dinner party.
