Making Potpourri from Your Garden – Part III of VII

Potpourri        Simmering Potpourri

 

Designed originally for use on woodstoves, simmering potpourris used in this way, help fragrance and add moisture to the air. Most often this type of potpourri is placed in electric simmering crockpots or candle-heated simmer pots. Usually, simmering potpourris can be reused more than once, if drained and allowed to air dry after use; add water again, to repeat process.

 

With a few adjustments in botanical selections, simmering potpourri is made in the same way as decorative blends. Selected mainly for fragrance: flowers, fragrant seeds, herbs, spices, essential oils are used.
