i love a good natural way to freshen up our home while giving our guests a warm welcome with beautiful + calming scents as they come through our front door. i’ve found dried florals blended with essential oils makes a lovely diffuser + air freshener while also adding a touch of pretty to your space.
simply gather dried phalaris grass + sweet annie + celosia cockscomb flowers. these types of flowers and grasses tend to soak up the oils best, which make their use and aroma last for a long time. depending on where you live you may find them foraging or you can simply ask your local florist if they carry them. farmer’s markets are good places to find these too or you can also order them online. i’ve been lucky enough to find mine at our local farmer’s market.
once you have gathered your goods you’re all ready to create your bouquet. make however you want or like, just make sure to leave some stem for hanging. you can use floral wire to tie the stems together as well as to hang your bouquet.
after your bouquet is made it’s ready for those yummy oils. we use young living essential oils you can find here or order here but you’re certainly welcome to use whatever you have on hand. simply add a few drops to your dried florals and it’s all set and ready to be hung and welcome you home.
