This potpourri lasts up to 6 months and is great for a outdoor feel.
What you need
Hard forest nuts
1 tbs of Orris root powder per 100 g of potpourri
5 drops of a your favorite forest woodland scent such as tea-tree or eucalyptus.
Start by drying out your woodland gatherings.
Place them on paper towel and microwave under constant supervision for a few minutes. This will dry out the seeds as well as kill off any little mites that may be hiding.
Use a non-metallic bowl to mix everything together and cover with some cling wrap or a lid.
Allow the mix to sit for around 1 week to allow the scent to consume the seeds, pods and leaves.
To use just pour into a decorative bowl.
It will last up to 6 months, but by adding more essential oil as time goes on it will last much longer.
