Home Made Potpourri From the Garden

I love spring, when the roses pop like popcorn all over our yard. I love to pick them and place vases throughout the house. When they begin to droop, I take them out and hang them upside down by the stems. I let them air dry and keep them until some hot summer day. Then, I take the blossoms from the stems to mix my potpourri of the year. This batch contains roses, lemon verbena dried last fall, orange peel, cloves, fennel seed, kosher salt, orange essential oil, lemon verbena essential oil, and rose essential oil. Roses mix nicely with citrus, cloves, and/or lavender.
