DIY potpourri. Don’t throw away those dried flowers anymore…There is a great way to make use of them in POTPOURRI.
A bowl of dried flowers, some whole spices and a few drops of essential oil can do the trick!!!
- Clean, dry paper plate
- Dried flowers/petals (I have used rose flowers, petals, gerbera flower and lavender flower)
- Whole spices – cardamom, cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, black stone flower
- Lavender oil
- Vanilla essence
STEP 1: Cut the flowers and air dry those in a mesh pouch until all the moisture content in the flowers are gone. This process may take several days.
STEP 2: Take a clean plate and toss in the dried flowers, all the spices, 5 drops of lavender oil and 5 drops of vanilla essence and mix well.
STEP 3: Transfer the contents to the bowl in which you would like to display the potpourri.
Easy to make, natural, fragrant homemade Potpourri is ready!!!
