Don't Toss Those Flowers! How to Make Homemade Potpourri
There are two basic types of homemade potpourri recipes: dried and simmering. Making dried potpourri - the kind that sits around in a bowl, letting off its wonderful scent - is fun, easy and affordable.
Create your own natural decorations with your preschooler for the home with this simple to do and follow how to on creating dried citrus slices, no special equipment needed. Then use them for decorations, potpourri or creating wreaths in the home.
You want to add at least 8 drops of essential oil for each cup of plant material you're using. Two cups of dried flowers = 16 drops of essential oils. Once you've added the oils to the potpourri, place it into a plastic sealable baggie or a jar with a lid and let it soak in for a few days. Place it in a bowl; the scent will last for a few weeks before you need to replenish it. #potpourri
