A Gift of Roses

The distiller who sent us our new batch of Rosa Alba and Bulgarian Rose Absolute sent us another gift.  A huge box of dried rose buds.  (Actually, since he produces other organic oils and herbs, he sent several packets of different dried herbs. We fell in love with the perfection of the wee rosebuds, and ordered more. They arrived with the oils, but until the end of this week we didn't have time to even look at them.  We still haven't decided what to do with them. Perhaps include a small sachet with our "Bouquet of Roses" sampler?  Perhaps gift some lucky client with some?  Perhaps add a sachet when someone invests in a LOT of Rose Oil. We shall see. In the meantime, they smell lovely.

These dried rose buds look gorgeous! I can imagine the wonderful smell..
I usually make a potpourri form them in winters to bring a little bit of summer back home.

I'm thinking they'd make a wonderful porpourri mixed with a handful of Bay leaves...some dried citrus zest, a cinnamon stick or two... maybe some tiny baby pine cones... And when the scent fades just adding a drop of Rose Otto or Rose Absolute would refresh it. I want to stick a wee bag in my pajama drawer tho!
