Part 1 of repurposing roses was my 50th post! So blessed to have 50 posts on the blog, and I hope all of you that support Eco Chic Cayman are enjoying the posts. xo.

So round 2 of repurposing roses. In addition to making rosewater you can also choose to make homemade potpourri.  Potpourri can easily be incorporated into your home decor.

Steps to making homemade potpourri 

1. Allow roses to dry over a period of days.

2. Remove rose petals

3. Place in a fun bowl or vase to change things up

4. Optional- Add Essential Rose Oil to fragrance the dried petals.


Alternatively, you can always keep the dried roses in a vase or recycle a wine bottle as a feature piece in your kitchen, living room or guest room.
