1858 Potpourri from the Sabbathday Lake Shakers
In 1858, Shaker Eldress Hester Ann Adams of the Sabbathday Lake Community developed this delightful, fragrant, and attractive blend of lavender flowers, rose buds and petals, essential oils and spices. The Shaker Community at Sabbathday Lake continues to make this potpourri according to Eldress Hester's recipe.
We can't even begin to describe how wonderful the aroma is. Cinnamon and orange notes are at the forefront, with a hint of lavender. If you think of potpourri as cloying, Eldress Hester's receipt may just change your mind; it did ours. Use as a room or drawer freshener. Not intended for internal consumption, of course. Packaged just like the Sabbathday Lake Shakers' Herbal Teas: in a square tin canister with clear-view lid. 1.6 ounces.
Also available packaged in a linen drawstring pouch as a sachet containing 2.8 ounces of potpourri, with Eldress Hester's photograph printed on the pouch.
