Lavender Potpourri Bowl [Do-it-yourself]

Lavender potpourri bowl makes the home even more homely. Liquid potpourri is a little more difficult. Why not make a potpourri house yourself?




What you need:

  • What you need:
  • About 3–4 cups of dried flowers (ideal for drying Rose petals but also any other kind of flower; in stores you can buy dried flower mixtures)
  • 2 teaspoons each of different spices (here, too, there are no limits to the imagination, the palette ranges from aniseed to cloves to cinnamon)
  • 2–4 drops of scented oil (e.g. lemon or lavender)
  • 3–4 teaspoons of violet powder to fix the fragrance (Rhizoma Iridis; in the pharmacy)
  • salt
  • cognac

How to mix the lavender potpourri bowl:

  • Put the petals in a well-closing container and add the spices and violet root powder
  • Mix everything well and set aside
  • Mix the scented oils and possibly the juice of a lemon in another Lavender potpourri bowl and add to the petals after a while
  • Sprinkle some cognac over the mixture to keep it moist and sprinkle with salt to set it
  • Close the container with the petals and let it stand for a few weeks, mixing carefully every now and then

Decoration tip:

Arrange the finished Lavender potpourri bowl in a tiered stand or bowl with small candles or tea lights and indulge in the pleasant play of scents and light.
