Potpourri Supplies:


  1. Using a large ziplock bag or large rubbermaid container, fill with dry potpourri.
  2. Add fragrance oil to the potpourri mix with a dropper or pipette, and stir continually while adding the fragrance. Suggested use is approximately 1/4 to 1/2 oz. per pound, depending on desired scent strength. There is no hard rule on this, just scent to taste.
  3. You can also use a liquid potpourri mixture of fragrance oil and incense solvent (DPG) and apply to dry potpourri with a spray bottle, continually spraying and mixing around until evenly distributed.
  4. Additional fixatives such as orris root, cellulose fiber, oakmoss, etc. can be scented separately and mixed into the blend later if desired. If adding any dyed ingredients to the mix (colored shavings, petals, leaves, etc), add them later after fragrance oil has been added and allowed to absorb to prevent color bleeding.
  5. After all ingredients are mixed, cover container tightly (do not fill to the top, leave some air space). Store in a cool dark place and allow the blend to cure for a couple of weeks before using. You may check the fragrance after a few days and add a little more if needed.


Potpourri looks great packaged in tin tie bags with a clear window, or in clear cello bags with ribbon, twine or raffia tied around the top. For an even more unique look, try packaging in our clear plastic votive tubes! If you have a retail shop, try filling large antique style counter jars and selling it by the scoop. Potpourri can be used in many creative and decorative ways, the possibilities are endless! Use in hurricane shells, as garnishing on rusty tin trays with an arrangement of grubby candles for a primitive look, or sprinkle some around items in a gift basket for an added touch. Fill cloth bags or pouches for scented sachets to freshen up your dresser drawers, your car or put inside your vacuum bag! Or there's always potpourri simmering pots.
