What You’ll Need:

2.5 oz. Nature Fix

Click here to add everything you need for this project to your Bramble Berry shopping cart! Hint: This “Buy it Now” button comes with 1 jar. If you want to make more than 1 potpourri, pick up multiple jars and a few extra baggies of the rose hips.

ONE: In an airtight container, add 3 mL of Pumpkin Pie Candle & Soap Fragrance to 2.5 oz. of Nature Fix (we like using our 8 oz. glass bail jars). With gloved hands, work the Nature Fix around in the jar to disperse the scent. Close the jar and shake. Ideally, you’ll let it sit for at least 2 hours to allow the fragrance to soak in. But, if you’re in a gift-giving pinch, you can skip that 2 hour process.

TWO: After you’ve let the Nature Fix sit, pour 1.3 oz. into the Glass Candle Jar.

THREE: Add a 1 oz. layer of Whole Cloves.

FOUR: Add a 1.7 oz. layer of Orange Peel.

FIVE: Add the remaining 1.2 oz. of Nature Fix.

SIX: Garnish the top with 1.2 oz. of Rose Hips and 4 – 5 Cinnamon Sticks.

Your potpourri is ready to go. This project is as easy as (pumpkin) pie! Don’t forget, you can also download and cut out these awesome holiday tags to add a finishing touch to your project. There are four fantastic designs to choose from. Your costs for this project are an affordable $7ish per jar, making this easy to give (and sell) for the holidays.
