How to make your own potpourri

Andrea is a SheKnows intern and currently a junior at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. When she's not spending the majority of her time on Tumblr and Netflix, she is looking up gluten-free meal ideas to try out.

Simple rose, cinnamon and orange potpourri

Make this potpourri and put it just about anywhere: in your underwear drawer, the family room or even in your car.

All you'll need is some rose petals, a few cinnamon sticks, orange oil and a jar with a lid.


  • 6 Cups of rose petals
  • 3 Cinnamon sticks
  • Orange oil


  1. Combine all supplies in a jar and let sit (use 3-4 drops of orange oil).
  2. Let sit; shake jar on Days 3 and 5.
  3. Put roses into a sachet.
  4. Enjoy!
