The featured book for today is “The book of pot pourri “by Penny Black.
This is a book that teaches, how to make pot pourri.
Since it is summer, why not gather those flowers and use them for “pot pourri”.
Using flowers for their scent and for personal decoration began centuries ago with the strewing of fragrant petals across the floor to scent the home, and the wearing of tussie – mussies both as perfumed decoration and to ward off the plague. The art of making and using pot pourri (first know as ‘rotten pot’) was born soon after.
Enjoy making your own pot pourri.
Happy Scent making!
