Belmont, Michigan Company Can Freeze-Dry Flowers As Gifts
As of right now we are less than two months away from Mother’s Day and already the preparation has begun to find a good gift for moms. Every year seems to be a challenge to find something different to show your appreciation. While scrolling through Facebook the other day I saw an advertisement pop up for a company a little north of Kalamazoo that seems to have a permanent answer for a temporary gift. It turns out you can freeze dry flowers? I’ve never even heard of this but apparently it’s a process that will allow you to somewhat immortalize a gift that usually only holds its beauty for about 2 to 3 weeks before it starts wilting.
How Does It Work
How Do The Flowers Stay Firm & Un-decayed
"Under a vacuum, the ice crystals melt at different temperatures going from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid. The gas is drawn to another chamber and condenses back to ice. Because of this process, their shape and natural color are maintained. When the flowers are done they are hand-dipped in a solvent that helps hold them together as well as having UV inhibitors to help reduce fading from the sun."
This seems super cool and just another idea we have at our disposal for the upcoming holiday.
