Scented Sachets Recipe


Do not place scented potpourri on wood, plastic, or painted surfaces as any unabsorbed fragrance can cause damage to these surfaces. Warning labels on your finished products are recommended to ensure customers use them properly. Testing is always recommended to ensure desired results are achieved.
