Hi M, What a lovely connection with Rose for you. It is such a multilayered, deep, helpful, protective, defensive and yet welcoming plant and really worth getting better aquainted with. Vitriol is concentrated sulphuric acid, as I understand it, and that sounds rather strong. I am intrigued to know if you go for that or not. I find rose very difficult to “fix” and quite ephemeral. That is partly why it is so expensive to purchase pure rose essential oil. Dried organic rose petals, or fresh, as a tea are really lovely (in my opinion) and quite a surprising taste. Maybe worth a try 🙂
Best wishes,
