The first batch of Rose appears to have grown a mold of some sort. It was surface mold only on some of the rose petals that were above the oil. I have a wonderful aerobic environment for things to grow in. The rose and oil are in a sealed jar, in a warm location, and covered by a towel.
I have removed the growing bits and a bit more of the top layer of rose petals that were above the oil line. Currently all remain roses are below the oil line. They have now gone back to their spot on the window sill to complete the 40 day wait. Since this is not a food based product that someone will eat, I am happy to let the recipe do what it is going to do. Batch 2 of rose oil seems to be doing well and shows no signs of growth.
