|Salt is a very diverse product. I use it for cooking, topping popcorn, mixing scrubs and even making salt potpourri. Salt potpourri is a simple way to incorporate your favorite scents into any space. I think that salt potpourri makes it so you don’t have to worry about hiding the bottle of room spray because the scent is coming from a part of your decor!
I enjoy walking into a softly scented room. It is so pleasant and refreshing, and it feels like a miniature celebration. Today I am going to make several jars of salt potpourri and use some of our recently released fragrance oils. Let me tell you about these yummy fragrances!
Amazon Fragrance Oil
Coconut Cassis Fragrance Oil
Dirty Mimosa Fragrance Oil
Napa Valley Vineyard Fragrance Oil
Cabana Boys Fragrance Oil
After describing all these fragrances, I’m feeling a bit like a mixologist. Are you getting the sense that cocktails are the word of the day?
Take the size of salt you desire, either Jumbo or Extra Large, and place enough salt that will fill your container(s) of choice into your strainer. We want to do a quick rinse of the salt to remove the powdery coating on the salt. Check out the photos and you will definitely see how the rinsed salt has more shine.
After the salt has dried, it is ready to place into your container. I have shown two options 1) glass jar with a lid that has holes (I’m using those small glass cheese containers) and 2) jute burlap drawstring bags. If you prefer any small open bowl or container can work as well. Always choose a glass container or natural fabric bags for displaying your salts. Fragrance and Essential Oils are strong solvents and will break down plastics.
Once the containers are filled with salt, then you add 1-2 ml of any fragrance or essential oil of your choice directly to the salt. Place the lid on the glass cheese containers and give a little shake when you want to freshen up your space. For the jute bags close the drawstring and give it a squish. I placed the jute bags onto a cardboard piece until ready to use.
When your salt potpourri starts to lose its scent, then add another 1-2ml of the same fragrance or essential oil or use a complementary new fragrance oil and start the fun all over again.
Enjoy the Salt!
