1. Slice all the fruit into thin slices.
2. To dry the fruit out, you can either use a food dehydrator or place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place it in the oven on very very low heat.
I've found that the dehydrator works the best. You can place the fruit in there and just let it go, without tying up your oven.(food dehydrators can be bought at your local wal-mart. I got mine for $20)
3. Dry it out until it is a light brown color, and has almost no smell to it. (If using a food dehydrator, this will take a few days. Times vary for ovens)
4. Place all the dried fruit and the botanicals into 2 large sandwich plastic bags. Add about 5-10 drops of your prefered fragrance.
5. Close the bags with a twist tie, and put it in a dark area for 2 weeks. Remember to shake the bag up every couple of days.
6.After the two weeks is up, open the bag. If you want a stronger smell, and some more fragrance oil and repeat the last step
