Flower Therapy Preserving Your Greenery Idea & Technique
Learn the Flower Impact Therapy Greenery Secret Technique For Longer Lasting Greenery / Add Greenery to Your Home, Work, & Community Spaces / Preserve your Flower Therapy Greenery:
I like to use shrub greenery in the spring and summer, branches with leaves in the fall, and fir tree branches in the winter for my personal flower therapy. But, I don't always have the time to clip branches and create fresh greenery. However, I want my flower therapy greenery to be real so I preserve it. My secret lies in the preservation of these leaves and branches to make my flower therapy greenery last longer. It takes a little bit of time to prepare the branches and leaves, so start a season ahead of time. Add these to your home, office, and community spaces for a higher dose of flower therapy!
Materials Needed for Preserving Flower Therapy Greenery: Pure Glycerin (Check Drug Stores and Specialty Food Markets) Green Dye Branches of Greenery (Boxwood, Shrubs, Leaves, Fir) Hammer Tall Container
Directions for Preserving Flower Therapy Greenery : Trim the leaves off the bottom of the stems and smash with a hammer. This process allows the stems to soak in the glycerin.
Make you solution in the container of 1/3rd glycerin and 2/3rds hot water and allow the glycerin to dissolve. Add some green dye to the solution. The more dye you add the greener the leaves will become.
Allow the hot water glycerin solution to cool down and then add your stems to it. Leave the stems in the solution for two weeks. After two weeks take the stems out and hang upside down in a cool dry place for three weeks. Once the stems are fully dry you can use them as part of your flower therapy décor. I add my processed stems to floral arrangements, wreaths, potpourri, and flower therapy balls. The stems will last a very long time and be preserved for all your greenery needs. Try it on rosemary and lavender stems too!
