Preserving Your Fresh Flower Lei

After returning home, you can preserve your fresh flower lei by putting it in a plastic bag and placing it in the refrigerator.

If you have a lei made of scented flowers (as most are), there is a special way to enjoy it:
1. Take the lei out of the bag and place the lei on your pillow for about 20 minutes or so each night just before bedtime.

2. Just before retiring, return the lei to the refrigerator to preserve the sweet scent.

Repeat this practice every night and your lei will give you sweet dreams and memories of Hawaii for several evenings to come.
