We know what you’re thinking…. potpourri, really? But seriously, just go with us on this one! So most people associate potpourri as something that your grandma has in her house, but believe it or not – with the correct styling you can incorporate this into your home décor and it also makes your home smell amazing and feel so cosy!
You can buy readymade bags of potpourri in pretty much any homeware shop to save time, or you can easily make your own! Simple gather all your favourite herbs, dried fruit and spices together, place them in a bowl and mix together to your desired appearance. Then add 3-5 drops of essential oils and that’s it!
Tip: The scent should fade after a few weeks so just top your potpourri up with more essential oils!
We recommend the following ingredients for the ultimate Autumnal scent:
· Cinnamon sticks
· Vanilla beans
· Dried apple slices
· Candied ginger
· All spice
· Dried Orange Peels
And voila! You have your own signature scent and a pretty potpourri arrangement that can be placed in a pretty bag with ribbon, a rustic bowl or plate or however you want to style this! Everyone will be asking “what candle or diffuser is this?” And do you want to know the best part? You can say “I actually made it myself!”
Now that is definitely a win, win if we do say so ourselves!
