The Memorial Petals for Scattering in Pink have many possible uses in scattering ceremonies, water burials, or ground burials. Many families scatter the petals on the water after placing a water burial urn on the water. The petals float on the water -- adding color and drama to the ceremony, and -- perhaps most importantly -- allowing more family members to participate. Another option is to mix the petals with cremated remains prior to scattering -- whether families are using a scattering tube or other vessel. Another popular use for the petals is to scatter them over the ground where a casket or an urn has been buried.
Family members or friends can take a pinch of the flower petals and participate by scattering them -- perhaps even sharing a memory of the person at that time. The light fragrance of the petals is a pleasant feature. Scattering of the petals can be a nice role for children related to the loved one -- rather than having them handle the ashes.
The Memorial Petals for Scattering - Pink are all natural and sun dried. Each package contains approximately a cup and a half of petals, which tends to be about 6 to 8 pinches of petals to scatter.
