Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet and gloves.
  2. In a small glass bowl, mix 2 Tablespoons of Benzoin Powder with 1 teaspoon of Orange (15X Clear) Essential oil. Allow the essential oil to penetrate the Benzoin for 2-3 hours.
  3. In a large glass bowl, mix Hibiscus Flowers, Orange Peel Pieces and White Willow Bark.
  4. After the essential oil has been absorbed into the Benzoin Powder, mix this oil into the dry botanicals. If the fragrance is not strong enough, add a few more drops directly into the mixture.
  5. Put potpourri into a large Ziploc bag for 3-4 days, shaking bag daily to blend fragrance with botanicals.
  6. After this is well blended, the product is ready to be packaged.
  7. Add approximately 3/4 cup of potpourri to the 8 muslin drawstring bags. The product is now ready for sale.
