    A wonderful to create a natural and seasonal ink for your Book of Shadows!


    Put flower petals into a glass and cover it with warm water.

    Leave for a few hours (overnight is best).

    This step is optional, if you want to intensify the colour, you can boil the flower water.

    Next strain and separate the liquid.

    Add strong alcohol in proportions 1 part alcohol to 4 parts of extract.

    Ink is ready to use!

    The three inks in the photos were made out of poppy, kingcup, and blue sweet pea. But you can experiment with any flowers in your garden, though toxic plants aren’t recommended.
