Either way making your own Potpourri is really easy and fun to do yourself or with family and friends. You can experiment with new smell combinations or different kinds of flowers, perhaps even create your own signature mix to give as gifts.

Some classic materials to use are Roses, Lilies, Iris, Lavender, Orange or Citrus wheels, cinnamon, vanilla, mint or pine. Bergamot and cardamom are a delightful twist to add if your feeling adventurous or send us your own ideas via the Contact Us button at the top of the page!
