Freeze-drying is an innovative method of drying and preserving real flowers. Even when the moisture is removed during freeze-drying the petals retain their colour, shape and size. The result is petals that look and feel almost like fresh petals (only slightly crisper). You can even 'soften' the petals prior to use by placing them in an open container in a steamy bathroom for 20-30 minutes, which will give them an even fresher texture.
Once petals have been softened they will wilt over the coming days/week as fresh petals would, so it's best to soften them just prior to use, either on the day or the day before.
Please note that our petals are a natural product and therefore there may be variations in colour, from petal to petal and what you see on your screen.
