An Introduction to Potpourri: Day Eight

Non-fragrant flowers and herbs can be used to add to the bulk and look of your mixture though they will add very little in the way of aroma. Choosing non-fragrant materials is usually done with visual appeal in mind, matching colors and texture to the primary aromatic ingredients for the best looking potpourri possible.

Essential oils are extracts of the oils found in flowers and herbs in their purest form, carrying with them a very intense aroma. These extracts are taken before the drying process and distilled in water to retain as much of the fragrance as possible. Because of its liquid form these oils can evaporate quickly when exposed to air and light but adding the oils to your mixture sparingly during the creation process can add an entirely new combination of smells to your potpourri. Essential oils can also be used to revive potpourri that has lost its aroma.
