Hi, my name is Betty. I am the guest editor for the day. I work in lots of areas here at MMS. I really like potpourri. So, today I am going to show you a different style of potpourri.
Moving from one home to another, I decided I wanted something different in potpourri. Something different in the smell, the beauty of colors and the container it was in. After finding what I needed in the MMS catalog, I decided to venture that direction.
The ingredients I need for my project are:
2-32 oz containers of Jumbo Crystal Salt
Dream Fragrance Oil
Large Zipper Top Plastic Bags
Parchment Paper or paper plates (I like the plates the best)
Preference of Glass Dish or Bowls
Small Transfer Pipettes
My project today is simple but beautiful and easy. Put 16 oz of salt crystals in large zipper style plastic bag. Add three 0.15cc scoops of Aqua Mica. Close bag and shake until all crystals are coated evenly. Add 1 teaspoon of Dream Fragrance Oil in bag and shake. Put on a plate to allow fragrance to penetrate all pockets and cracks of the salt crystal. Put in your desired glass container. Wow!
Always choose a glass container for displaying your salts. Fragrance oils are strong solvents and will break down plastics.
Making these potpourri salts has been so much fun and what great gifts to make. Try it and enjoy!
