Spring Refresh

 

Spring will be in full bloom before you know it!  One of our favorite things to prepare for the beautiful season is to try out new and unique ways to re-use old items.  Spring is all about rejuvenation, renewal and regrowth, so why not take those “unusable” items and give them new life!

Recycling materials is a great way to be proactive about sustainability, but have you ever thought about recycling your Frederique’s Choice bouquets? This spring we'd love to share some of our favorite ideas with you.

Turn your flowers into an all-natural cleaner:

 

Blend a quarter cup of your dried flowers with one cup of baking soda and a tablespoon of salt for a great multi surface cleaner and enjoy the scent! Check This Link Out for Homemade Aromatherapy Cleaners

 

Rose petals retain their scent for weeks, take a sock you have lost the pair to and fill it with the dried rose petals to use in a drawer or car.  You will be able to smell your flowers for months!

Make decorative candles:

Take those dried flowers, a spoon, a candle to decorate and a candle to light to turn a plain candle into a naturally beautiful decoration! Just light one of the candles to heat up the inside of a spoon and brush the dried flower onto the other candle with the heated spoon.  Keep going until you have created the beautiful layout you like!

Unwind with rose petal bath salts:

Integrity:  Here’s where those “Age of Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In” lyrics come into play.  Harmony, understanding, truthfulness, peace, honesty, sympathy and trust all signify an Aquarian.
