Rose and Spice Potpourri
This mixture has a dusty appearance because of the spices. A few perfectly dried rose buds, whole dried miniature roses or dried petals can be used on the sides and tops of glass jars to brighten this beautiful but simple potpourri.
4 cups dried rose petals
1 cup mixture of freshly ground cinnamon, cloves and a little nutmeg
1/2 cup orrisroot powder ( Note: I used a couple of ground chips of rose resin as a fixative instead of orrisroot powder)
10 drops rose oil
Rosebuds, whole roses, or petals for decoration
Mix rose petals and spices thoroughly with your hands. Blend oil and orrisroot powder together with your fingers and add to the petals. Put mixture into an airtight container and allow to mellow for 3 weeks before transferring to jars or bowls.
I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
