Potpourri Rocks
by Lucinda Jenkins LPNHC
These handmade little rocks can be added to potpourri to increase the potpourri scent and increase the longevity of the scent. They can also be used alone, tied in a pretty sachet or added to your sachets. You can mix in lavender buds or rose petals in your dough to add texture and visual beauty to your potpourries

mix together in a bowl:
1 cup of salt
1 cup of flour
1/2 -3/4 teaspoon of essential oil or fragrance oil
food coloring if desired..( I like pink with red rose petals added)
1 cup to 1 1/3 cup of very hot water
mix ingredients into a stiff dough and then shape into balls, flat stones,or squares...let your imagination go.
let them air dry until hard and then use
