Recycle Your Flowers! Make Potpourri!

Time to toss the flowers? Not quite! "Recycle" and reuse old blooms and turn them into a fantastic floral potpourri!

Roses, freesia, statice, babys breath and eucalyptus are a few great choices for drying.

To remove rose petals quickly, simply grab the entire head of the rose and bend sideways to snap off the head and release the petals.

Mix florals together with a few drops of your favorite essential oils and enjoy your beautiful, fragrant potpourri! Makes a great gift!

Best Wishes,
Miss Judy Bloom
