As I’d said in another post, when my China Aster flowers began to wilt, I decided to dry them in my airfryer.
Having saved some glass bottles from the recycling, I stripped the petals and they smell amazing. But I wasn’t really certain what to do with them after that.
I was thinking about adding them to the Home blessing oil recipe, but decided to do little research first on any particular properties they may have.
This afternoon I stumbled across a blog article on China Asters and learned about their magical uses for love and water magic and that they’re sacred to Aphrodite.
As it happens, when I ordered my prints of Persephone and Hecate from an Etsy seller they got lost in the post and returned to her despite her using the right address, so she threw in some stickers, one of which was of Aphrodite. So I’ve labelled the jar accordingly to be used at a later date.
Really excited to be learning new things and creating my own ingredients.
