Dew should be collected from_mysticmagicspells.organically grown roses. roses are frequently sprayed with highly toxic chemicals, some will cause allergic

reactions or worse! They aren't safe even if you have never seen them being sprayed either,

systemic poisons are injected or placed around the roots of the plant and will result in the same

exposure to these toxins. Even_mysticmagicspells.organically grown roses are occasionally sprayed with sulfur and

other solutions to keep fungi at bay, so this will affect the working. Sulfur will actually oppose this

working with its repelling tendencies. Ideally, the roses will be your own, or from a garden you are

familiar with so you know that it has been at least two weeks since any sprays have been applied.

To collect the dew, have a very clean, well wrung out, natural sea sponge or

color-free cellulose sponge. Armed with your sponge and a small bottle, go to the roses late at

night or very early in the morning, during the waxing moon is best. Dab the dew from the flowers

and some leaves and occasionally wring the sponge out into the bottle.

This shouldn't take long, maybe 15 minutes to collect what is needed, (depending on the

humidity in your area) but get extra as long as you are there for future use.

Separate the excess from what you will be using for any immediate workings.

To the bottle that you will be putting up for storage add:

3 drops of ethyl alcohol, brandy, or rubbing alcohol or 9 drops of allmercial vanilla extract

and a small pinch of sea salt.

This will keep it fresh for several months, and refrigerate as well.

Exposure to light will ruin the solution, as with many extracts and infusions, so keep it in the dark

or in an amber or cobalt glass vial. If you cannot collect Rose Dew in this manner, substitute

rose water in your spells. Rose water can be readily purchased from most grocers, drug stores

or Mediterranean food markets.
