All recipes are original. Potpourri hand-made from Australian dried flowers and dried botanicals.
Creative Dried Flowers has for many years, been making beautiful looking dried Potpourri. The three most popular mixes are Rose Potpourri, Lavender Potpourri and Australiana Potpourri. These Potpourri mixes are made to be seen in open bowls, however the mixes can be used in small bags to scent wardrobes, drawers, and automobiles.
The potpourri fixative used in these recipes is Orris root granules, grown and harvested on our farm near Ballarat, Vic. Only quality fragrance oil is used with orris root to fix the scent. This prolongs the life of the potpourri for several months.

Weigh 10g orris root granules and place in clean dry jar with lid. Jam jar size is suitable. Add 5ml of rose fragrance oil to the granules. Close lid and shake the jar. Leave overnight. Next day or two, measure out 85g of dried rose petals in a large mixing bowl. Add contents of jar of orris root and stir. When well combined place the mix in a plastic bag (lock seal bags are best) and seal. Over the next 2-3 days shake the bag. At this stage more fragrance oil can be added to mix if prefer a stronger scent. Potpourri is now ready to use.
