Immersed flowers, also called herbarium oil flower or japanese herbarium bottles, consist of dried or stabilized flowers immersed in oil for a resolutely designer decorative look. But what is this method of preserving flowers? How long can they be kept? And above all, why are we such a fan at Polhine?
A sustainable method of conservation 🌍
There are different methods of preserving flowers and plants, such as the method of pressing or even drying in the open air. These different techniques allow the flowers to become real decorative objects that last for several years.
Another method, of Japanese and Korean origin, consists of the immersion of certain varieties in a specific herbarium oil: vials, tubes and beautiful bottles are then transformed into floral compositions immersed for a unique rendering, and this for months. , even years. Thanks to this technique, the submerged flowers retain a fresh air and vibrant colors. Unlike bouquets and other compositions of dried flowers that fear humidity, herbarium oil flower are ideal for flowering damp rooms, such as the bathroom. This also makes it a great option to accompany special occasions such as weddings or other events for gift ideas.
For maintenance, it's very simple: you just have to keep them away from direct exposure to the sun and dust them with a soft cloth to avoid potential scratches on the glassware. The oil used is non-toxic, even if it is obviously necessary not to ingest it and to keep the bottles and tubes of flowers submerged out of the reach of children and animals.
