Fragrant Potpourri Idea: Citrus Potpourri


You can have a pretty citrus scented potpourri blend that is so naturally fragrant that it doesn’t even need added fragrance oil. For this blend you will need dried citrus slices (oranges, limes, and lemons). You can buy dried fruit slices from crafts stores but if you want to dry them yourself, click here to see how. You will also need dried citrus peel, this can also be purchased at crafts stores but you can also dry it yourself with these steps. What adds to the citrus scent and also adds a lovely green color to this blend is a wonderful lemon scented herb – Lemon Verbena. Just add dried Lemon Verbena leaves to your dried citrus slices and citrus peel. Make sure all your ingredients are thoroughly dried because if there is any moisture in them it will start to mold and ruin your potpourri. And just as an accent to add a little red color, I added some dried rosehips to the blend, but that is optional.

The combination of this blend creates a really nice citrus scent on it’s own but if you want to make it stronger you can add some citrus scented fragrance oil to it.
