Hello all, yet another post on how to make your home smell amazing, cheaply and cheerfully.
DIY pot pourri
Or a quicker way (as seen in the picture) buy a cheap pack of pourri (Tesco £2) and throw in household ingredients, add a few drops of your desired essential oil/s and violà.
What I used:
- Cinnamon sticks
- Bay leaves
- Star anise
- Cardamom seeds
It smells lovely, it fills the room and gives an autumnal feel. Be experimental with different scents – herbs, spices, flowers, essential oils and dried fruits (orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit)
Slice fruit, place them on a lined baking tray, bake them slowly in the oven on a low temperature for 2-3 hours.
Look in charity shops for interesting bowls for the pourri, I used a snack bowl which I had been saving for specifically this.
Love always x
