Easy Methods To Make Herbal Potpourri

Easy Methods To Make Herbal Potpourri

Making your own herbal potpourri is super easy and a enjoyable wintertime project! Plus, it is a fantastic present idea, good to make with kiddos, and an important addition to vacation ambiance, sock drawers, vehicles, or the laundry basket. Who doesn't love all-natural botanical perfume?

So, is crafting potpourri so simple as it looks? Yes, with one surprising but essential step – adding a fixative mixed with essential oils. A fixative may be any number of ingredients together with orris root powder, frankincense powder, myrrh gum powder, angelica root powder, calamus root powder, or benzoin gum powder.

I desire to use orris root powder, which comes from the rhizome of two species of European iris. The rhizomes resemble ginger and are harvested in August, stripped of their rootlets and bark, and dried until they've a chalky appearance. Dried orris root smells like violets and is commonly used in natural toothpastes and as a fixative in perfumes to reinforce other aromas.

When making your potpourri, try to find a balance of color, dimension, and texture, and don't be concerned too much in regards to the scent of your dried herbs since they'll take up the scent of your essential oil blend. You'll be able to benefit from the aroma for weeks! You should utilize any number and combination of herbs that you like. I attempt to find a nice mix of cumbersome and interestingly shaped herbs along with light and fluffy herbs for softening the blend.

This mix is sweet and seasonal with a light floral touch and can be nice to have across the house this vacation season. Once mixed up, fill an ornamental bowl close to the entrance of your house, avoiding direct sunlight.

DIRECTIONS
Combine dry herbs together in massive bowl, folding and fluffing gently.
Place 2 Tablespoons of Orris Root Powder in a small mixing bowl and add essential oil blend.
Combine along with small whisk, pestle, or fork till absolutely incorporated.
Wearing rubber gloves, pour fixative mixture over herbs and fold collectively till fully incorporated.
Place in air tight container for storage, bag up in small reward packs for friends and family, or place some in small bowls across the house for brightening up your holiday dwelling!
