Rose and Lavender Potpourri Recipe

Rose and Lavender Potpourri Recipe

I love drying out my flowers and reusing them. Its one of my favorites things to do now. These lovely flowers were given to me by my husband for my birthday. Rose has 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.

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 be perfect for Valentine Day.

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

 

How To Make Rose and Lavender Potpourri

 

I added one of the rose sachet 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 for Valentines Day. Three of us are having lunch next week so I’ll bring a few to surprise them. Valentine is not only for husbands and wife’s its nice to share it with friends too.

 

 

Now that I made my first recipe of potpourri, I think sky is the limit. There are so many variations out there. Will you make some? You can find similar bags and lavender at Micheals.

    I love dried rose petals, they are such a lovely way save a beautiful bunch of flowers and not waste them. I tried a few different methods a few years ago, so you just lay them out with a paper towel over them and leave them to dry out?

    Homemade potpurri is the best, It smells so much better and you know exactly what in there.
