Loo freshner from old herbs

I was having a bit of a spring clean today and turned some really out of date dried herbs into a loo freshner.  It’s basically a pot pourri, using some herbs I was storing in the kitchen for teas.  They were bought or harvested in 2009, so a few years old. For dried herbs to be effective they should ideally be used within one year.  The blend I put together contains the following…

Lavender
Spearmint
Elderblossom
Chamomile

As you can see, I simply mixed them together in a glass jar and tucked it behind my loo with the lid open a little.  It should freshen up my loo for quite some time to come!
