Seeking bulk dried roses in Echo Park/Los Feliz/Silver Lake area

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for bulk dried roses to make my own rosewater on the East Side. (I know Rainbow Acres sells them, but that is FAR, and online delivery is too slow for what I need right now.) Any one know of a place that sells bulk herbs/dried flowers in the 90026 zip code or nearby? Downtown or Pasadena works, too.

I tried Naturewell on Sunset, but they only have dried lavender--no roses.

Thanks in advance for your help, and sorry if I repeated a question -- couldn't find anything when I did a search.

  1. You should do some sleuthing at the Flower Mart downtown

      Thank you, that's a great suggestion.

        You might want to consider organic because most commercial (and not) roses use tons of pesticides and fertilizers to flower. I wouldn't want to put a distillation on my skin or eat it.
