An aromatic flower arrangement for your resting time

Make an arrangement from some aromatic flowering plants, which is a decoration as well as a therapeutic remedy for your mind and spirit. It’s a scent mixture that is increasing your good humor. The floral arrangement is made by Myrtle, scented geranium, Marjoram, Rosemary and Dianthus.

Dianthus

Dianthus

Buy from a flower shop a plastic flower pot and a pendant wrought iron flower pot support with lateral holes or perforated model. The flower container has to be smaller than the iron support, so that the pendent plants will outspread their stems through the holes and also overhang the support.
Neither of the aromatic plants hasn’t a favourite type of soil, well drained soil.

The Common Myrtle (Myrtus communis) has a pleasant scent. The plant is widespread in Mediterranean region, not a splendid decoration, a modest one but with aromatic effects. Plant myrtle in the centre of the pot, because it’s not pendent like the other plants and it’s the one that is representing the highest level of the arrangement.

There come the scented geranium of which flowers and leaves are perfumed too and red Dianthus caryophyllus, pendent flowers with cinnamon and vanilla flavour. Plant these two plants around the myrtle, as a second circular flower bed.

Finally, alternately plant on the margin the pendent Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis Repandus), a pendent flowering plant with small violet flowers and a sweet citrus and pine flavours and Marjoram (Marjorana hortensis), very appreciated by the cultivars for its aromatic leaves and the pretty pink flowers.

After you’ve planted the flowers in the container put it in the iron support and take the pendent floral stems through the holes of the iron support.

Suspend this pot flower arrangement in your garden tower or terrace or balcony or in any of your relaxing corner.

This aromatic arrangement is for the stress relief.
