People usually celebrate Roseday, exchange flowers, bouquets & gifts. And throw them in Dustbin.
You can always Celebrate what you want in a sustainable way, like-
Buy Flowers but not the plastic packaging around it. I usually buy single Rose, it shows my love for the person as well as Mother Earth so it’s a win win situation. 🙂
You can decompose the flowers, it’s always good to put the flowers in your compost bin but, don’t forget to remove them from the plastic packing, they can’t be decomposed at all.😔
Buy fewer flowers, hyper-consumerism costs our planet.
Grow your own flowers, Support local sellers and seasonal flowers.
For Reusing Flowers– Keep them in a dry place and after two weeks you will have dry flowers with their natural fragrance intact. Transfer in a glass jar for later uses.
For Face/Bodywash -You can Grind Dry Flower petals, in a mixer and add in your Face wash or Body wash powder.
For Natural Roomfreshner–
You’ll Need- Dry flowers
Essential oil of your choice &
Cotton or breathable cloth bag.
Let’s have a look at few simple steps to make this- Take a bowl
Add flowers and essential oil, now mix them well
Put them in a small cotton bag, now add some camphor to it.
Now just tie the bag & hang it in a corner of your room or place it on study table.
You can always refresh the bag by adding camphor, when it evaporates completely and when fragrance is mild or starts fading, don’t add too much of camphor, add just a few, else it will overpower the natural fragrance of flowers.
These flowers will come along for a long time, Just enjoy the fragrance of a natural roomfreshner 😊
Note as Mother: Avoid keeping this or any thing with strong smell near babies or newborns, & in their room.
Hope you like these simple ways of reusing Flowers/Roses and don’t just throw them away in the Bin. 🙂
