The greatest d.i.y. project is living happily.

A homemade potpourri recipe

This is just one of the countless recipes of d.i.y. potpourri that anyone can make. The ingredients that I’ve used are all easy to find. For this potpourri version, I chose:

  • cinnamon sticks
  • lavender
  • dried roses
  • dried spearmint leaves
  • burlap pouches
  • organza pouches

I used a blender in order to chop all these ingredients and mix them but before that I had to smash the cinnamon sticks into smaller pieces. That made easier the mashing process and the mixing.

The final step was to put into the organza pouches the potpourri. And then I put these into burlap pouches just for safety (but also for my upcoming project! I can’t say anything more right now, but you’ll find out pretty soon!).

There is nothing better than the scent of cinnamon which is so calming and it fits to the winter season. And of course this sweetness of roses and that refreshing tone of lavender and spearmint!
