POT POURRI WORKSHOP [10]

Pot Pourri is an ancient craft which uses flowers and leaves for perfume in the home. Moist pot pourri was made by salting petals in large crocks until they dried out and then curing them with herbs and spices. Its perfume was subtle and long lasting, but since the appearance was less attractive than that of the dried pot pourri, it was kept in a closed decorative container.   

You will learn how to transform the flowers from your garden into a fragrant, long lasting pot pourri with the addition of salt!
