Today I want to feature my potpourri. I make rose potpourri and geranium potpourri. I dry the flowers, then I place the petals in a paper bag with essential oil (geranium oil for geranium petals, rose oil for rose petals) for a week or two. Then I package the petals in a tulle bag that ties with a ribbon. The photos below show the potpourri in bowls, like it would be in a home.
I really enjoy growing these roses and saving the petals by making potpourri. I like knowing that the beauty of the roses is preserved for many more seasons, even though the rose on the bush is gone.
If you like my Tuesday Treasures, please consider liking my Lizbeth’s Garden page on Facebook. There is also a link in the sidebar to your right. I post there about the things I am currently working on, and new items in my Etsy shop, and what I’m doing with my little business. Thank you.
