Make your own sophisticated potpourri that will last for months! This recipe can be used to make little balls of fragrance stones, or rolled out like sugar cookie dough, and cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup salt
1/4 tsp cornstarch
2/3 cup boiling water
1 Tbl fragrance oil
Coloring, glitter or add-ins
Mix together all of the dry ingredients. Add the fragrance oil and coloring to the boiling water, then stir into the flour mixture. Mix thoroughly, then knead the dough with your hands.
The dough should begin to look like pie or cookie dough. Pinch off small pieces and roll into small balls. You can also roll the dough out into a sheet, as you would with sugar cookie dough and use cookie cutters to cut the dough into shapes.
Let the dough dry – it will get as hard as rocks and will last for months. You can refresh the scents by spritzing with the same fragrance oil, if desired.
