DIY Lavender Potpourri with Rose Petals

Have you ever taken roses and dried them out to use for potpourri. I love drying my roses and making potpourri. The dried roses are perfect blend to add to lavender potpourri. Roses have a sweet smell and lavender is very soothing. I use it when I am feeling down or tired. It gives me that pick me up I need on a daily basis. So I developed my own potpourri recipe that I can place in little sachet bags or you can put them in little plates or dishes.

What is Potpourri

Potpourri is a mixture of dried herbs and flowers. There are many kinds of potpourri. You have smell of spices such as cinnamon, pine and other herbs all added together, which I have here in this HOW TO MAKE FRESH SCENTED PINE NEEDLE POTPOURRI. You can even brew potpourri over the stove slowly to create a fragrance throughout the home. I prefer the dried potpourri in sachets or little dishes.

How To Make DIY Lavender Potpourri

I gathered 1 cup of the dried rose petals and added 1/2 cup of dried lavender. I combined the two and placed for a few days with a paper towel over them. The little bags have little hearts on them so they are perfect for a sweet gift idea.

After they are dried I combine dried flower petals in a bowl and mix well. Fill the bag with the mixture. Gather the open end of th sachet leaving a heading on the bag about 1/2 of an inch. Tie the ribbon of the bag tightly.

I added one of the rose sachets in my purse and the sweet smell made me smile. I placed one on top of each of the pillows on the bed. They also make great drawer sachets. These make pretty gifts at an inexpensive cost. I am super excited to give a few as gifts to my friends.
