1000 Flowers for the Planet - #343 Make Your Own Potpourii
Choose not to spray chemicals around your home and make your own potpourri instead. Gather flowers in the morning, dew free. You can pick flower heads, petals and sprigs. Remove the stems, place on a screen mesh in a single layer and leave in a warm, dark place for about three weeks or until they are completely dry. Gather them into a bowl, add 6 drops of essential oil and 2 tablespoons of orris root powder, then leave in a pretty container in your entrance hall or sitting room. If you don’t wish to use your potpourri straight away store it in a sealed container until you require it.
This is another opportunity for you to search the Internet for lots of lovely recipes for making your own potpourri. You will have a healthy product made from all natural and renewable resources, no chemicals and no packaging to throw away.
