Autumn is full of so many distinct and wonderful scents. Cinnamon, apple, nutmeg, pumpkin, brown sugar, pine, harvest spice, the list can go on.... Last week, we learned how to infuse those scents into potpourri. Potpourri is a mixture of dried, naturally fragrant plant material, used to provide a gentle natural scent. It is often placed in a decorative bowl or tied in small sachet made from sheer fabric and placed in a common area, like a living room or bedroom.

Attached to this blog you will find a PowerPoint labeled "Potpourri 4 Dummies". It is a step by step tutorial on how to make your own potpourri bowl. The main ingredients - flowers/herbs/spices, baking sheet, parchment paper, essential oils & water. Yup. that's it. So take a peak and have a ball, because we sure did.
