Interesting Ways to Re-use Dead Flower


Flowers may look beautiful whilst they’re alive, but it’s a sad fact that they will eventually pass on to the big florist in the sky. However, just because your flowers have died, that doesn’t mean they don’t have their uses.
Here are some interesting ways you can re-use your flowers even after they’ve died…

Make potpourri
Making potpourri is probably one of the most obvious things to do with your dead flowers, but it’s also one of the most popular and most effective. Flowers smell great when they’re alive but they can still smell fantastic even after they’ve died and can make a lovely smelling air freshener for your living room, bedroom or bathroom. Potpourri is pretty easy to make – this article nicely explains how to do it.

Frame them
Framing dead flowers is a really interesting way of re-using them and can look fantastic if framed properly. Dry them out first and then either frame just the petals or you can do the whole flower; do it against a contrasting colour background (or white always works well) to really make them stand out. They look fantastic in pretty much any room of the house.

Jar the petals with a candle
Take the petals off the flower and place them in a glass jar along with a candle. When the candle is light, the petals will be beautifully illuminated. However, if the petals are dried out, remember to use an electric candle as otherwise there is a potential fire risk. This is becoming quite a popular way to give flowers at a funeral as the light in the candle is very symbolic, or can be done to regular funeral flowers once they die. For example the flowers from these wreaths from Flowers Same Day would look great even once they’ve died if put in a jar with a candle.

Put rose petals in tea or cakes
Rose petals are actually very flavoursome and can add a lovely scent and flavour to both tea and some cakes. You will need to wash the petals first, but putting a couple in a cup of hot water is a real treat.

Make cleaning products
If you want to make your own cleaning products then adding flower petals to them can give them a lovely scent. For example, you can make surface cleaner by blending a quarter cup of flower petals with one cup of baking soda and a tablespoon of salt. Experiment with different flowers’ petals for different results. Good Housekeeping has more info on making your own cleaning products.

Use them for compost or fertiliser
Out in the ‘wild’, dead flowers and plants are one of the main forms of nutrients for other flowers and plants and so you can help do your bit for the foliage food chain by using your dead flowers as compost or fertiliser to help other plants to grow. Simply place them around the base of other plants and as they decay they will feed the surrounding earth.

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Review: Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover Boots No7

 Am demachiantul acesta de cateva luni si imi place sa-l folosesc , cred ca e demachiantul meu bifazic preferat.  Are o consistenta apoasa , usor uleioasa si curata bine pana si machiajul rezistent la apa. Testul suprem a fost cu un eyeliner waterproof de la Essence care trece foarte greu , insa cu acest demachiant nu am avut probleme.  Eu agit foarte bine flaconul, pun cateva pompite de demachiant pe o discheta si sterg machiajul ochilor .Nu imi agaseaza ochii , nu trebuie sa insist tare. Deseori l-am folosit si pentru ten si curata bine , pot sa spun ca imi simtean tenul usor hidratat de la uleiul continut.  Imi place si ca formula este fara parfum , testata oftalmologic, hipoalergenica, potrivita pentru ochii sensibili .  Singurul minus ar fi pretul mai mare decat al celorlalte demachiante bifazice folosite de mine, in jur de 35 de lei. Pompita este perfecta pentru dozarea produsului , cateva pompite imi sunt deajunse pentru ambii ochi.  Din cateva miscari s-a luat
