Potpourri is such a great way to freshen your home and make beautiful gifts for your family and friends. It is such an easy and cheap way to make your house smell beautiful and you can make it with any herb or fruit lying around your house. For gifts, all you have to do is dehydrate the fruits and herbs to provide freshness for anyone who receives it. Who wouldn't love that!
What is Potpourri?
Potpourri can be made in two ways: either by drying various plants to provide a light natural scent and placing them in a bowl or by using fresh ingredients and having them simmer in a pot. I prefer the simmer method, but you can do either way. You can use any natural fruit such as lemon or citrus, flowers such as rose or any herb. You can even add other ingredients like vanilla to enrich the scent.
