How to Care for Flowers that have Preserved?

To ensure that your beloved blooms retain their beauty and shelf life , here are some tips. Although Dried Flowers differ from Preserved Flowers in the matter of their drying process, the nature of both products is however similar. Hence you can use these guidelines to keep your florals looking natural and fresh:

  • Keep them away from direct sunlight or any bright spot that might cause the flowers to fade.
  • Don’t spray water or perfume on them. Despite the flowers looking alive, they are not and hence can be damaged in the process.
  • Keep the dried blooms away from humid areas and vents. 
  • Don’t apply pressure on the flowers as they are delicate. 
  • Avoid touching them too often, as your hand’s natural oils may harm them.
