In between classes I made some potpourri!  Every few weeks, Ron has been bringing home a dozen roses...they run cheap down here.  I remember when I was living in Cuernavaca, my "brothers" would bring home roses every Friday to their wives & my mamacita!  It was a nice tradition.  So I gathered up all my saved roses and leftover herbs, spices, etc, bought some orrisroot to use as a fixative & some essential oils to help infuse the petals with a wonderful smell.  Here are a couple of pics of the process:

This batch made 7 quarts of potpourri!  It is now curing before it goes into large storage containers.  Then I can take some out, add a drop of essential oil to reinvigorate the smell & use!
