How do you get rid of the smell that some dried flowers seem to have? I dried some orange colored roses that a friend put in an arrangement and they have a urine smell that is very strong. I also noticed this with other flowers that I dried. Is there any way to get rid of the smell?

Some flowers just have 'that' bad smell when they dry (e.g. caspia, sea lavender). To be honest, we just avoid using (growing) them. I am not familiar with any product that would work.

Now in some cases, under very high humid conditions, a flower can actually mold. This mold can produce a terrible smell. In this case, throw it away and next time place the flowers in a different, more airy, location.
