Add the water to the pot.  You should add just enough water to cover the petals. Cover the pot with a lid and over low-medium heat bring the water to boil. Once the water is boiling, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until the petals have lost all their color.

Strain the water from the petals. You can use a cheesecloth or stainless steel strainer for this. Discard the petals. Transfer to spray bottle.
