Question: What's the best way to dry rose petals?

Answer: Spread them thinly on tissue paper or a wire screen and place them where there will be plenty of ventilation. Don't put them in direct sunshine. Drying will take several days, depending upon the rose variety and moisture content. When dry, mix them with cloves for a fragrant mix, but don't overdo it.
