Valentine’s Day is just around the corner; why not create your own delightful, easy-to-make pot pourri? This recipe is not only incredibly simple to create but because the ingredients are 100% natural, there are no chemicals invading your home.
Dried flowers, in particular dried lavender, dried rose petals and dried rose buds, were used in medieval times to freshen rooms and washing (Lavender is still used today in washing powder).
Our favourite recipe is Lavender & Rose. The lavender provides a relaxing, calming scent and the rose petals work perfectly while providing their own signature scent.
Lavender & Rose Potpourri
4 Cups of Dried Lavender
2 Cups of Dried Rose Petals
1 Cup of Dried Rose Buds
5-10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil (or any alternative that you prefer)
Pop all of your dried items into a plastic container and mix them together so that they are evenly distributed.
You’ll now need to blend your pot pourri mix with 5-10 drops of your chosen essential oil. This needs to be evenly distributed in the flowers and will intensify the scent of the pot pourri.
To allow the scent to intensify your pot pourri, store the pot pourri mixture in an air tight container for a week.
It really is that simple! Now you have your very own pot pourri blend that will not only look absolutely stunning in your home, but it is also chemical free!
