winter walk pot pourri
This year's Winter Walk pot pourri is now ready so I have been packaging it up today in time for tomorrow's Balfron Nursery Fundraiser.
Along with the cones, lichen, nuts and seedheads gathered on walks are cinnamon, cloves and juniper berries. Ive added essentials oils of pine, orange and clove and left it to mellow for a while.
Together the mix gives a warm spicy scent with an underlying green sense of autumn woods. It is much fresher and more interesting (and considerably cheaper) than the bags of mass produced orange slices and cinnamon sticks sold by the big stores and white themed catalogues!
