Roses are in full bloom right now! I love to enjoy these gorgeous flowers. They bring such beauty to my flower garden, as the bees buzz around them and the pretty buds open up to showcase colorful petals.

No need to let all those petals go to waste after they fully bloom. Gather them up, dry them, and continue to enjoy them as essential oil potpourri.

Essential Oil Potpourri with Rose Petals

Here is how to make essential oil potpourri from rose petals:

Step 1: Gather rose petals from rose bushes. Look for ones that are already fully open and ripe, they will come off the stem easy when pulled. Pull them off in a bundle at the base of the petals.

Get a variety of colors if you would like.

Step 2: Lay the petals out on a flat surface (I like to use cardboard box lids, they contain them but let them air dry easily). Mix around every day until they dry out completely, it will take about 1 week.

Step 3: Once the rose petals are all dry, gather them up and place in a decorative bowl. Store any unused petals in a mason jar or bag, I save them unscented for future use.

To add more aroma to rose petals in the bowl, add a few drops of essential oils onto dried petals and stir around.

Rose oil would be an obvious choice!

I put a citrus blend on my recent batch (it has a few citrus oils and vanilla absolute), it is in my kitchen.

How to Dry Rose Petals

Here is a video that shows the whole process, it's a little shaky (you were warned!) but a great tutorial:

Essential Oils for Potpourri

Both potpourri and essential oils are a popular way to add desired fragrances to a home. It is just natural to combine essential oils with potpourri recipes. Rose petals may not retain their scent once dried.

You can add in other flower petals (like dried lavender), pine cones, cloves, cinnamon sticks, wood chips, or other items from your personal garden as desired.

Here are some essential oil options to scent your potpourri with essential oils, you can do a combination of oils as well:

Floral
  • Rose
  • Geranium
  • Lavender
  • Ylang Ylang
  • Rose Geranium
Spices
  • Cinnamon
  • Clove
  • Cardamom
  • Ginger
Citrus
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Bergamot
  • Grapefruit
Woody
  • Sandalwood
  • Cedarwood
  • Juniper Berry
  • Fir Needle

How to Make an Essential Oil Rose Petal Sachet

Here is a simple, yet beautiful way to use your essential oil potpourri...make it into a sachet!

Let it naturally scent your drawers, closets, car, storage bins, etc. You can even keep it on a work desk, pick up and inhale the aroma for a quick aromatherapy session.

Rose petal sachets also make great homemade gifts and are budget friendly!

You just need some organza bags (here's the one pictured in my photo). Then just place your scented rose petals into the organza bag, you can fill it as full as you like. Pull the strings to close the bag, tie a single knot and DONE!
