Thinly slice an orange, lemon, apple and pear, and place them on a metal cooking rack. Using your oven's dehydrate setting, cook the fruit slices until they are fully dried, making sure to flip them every half hour.

Pour the mixed potpourri into a jar of your choosing, and cover the opening with a decorative cloth before sealing the lid. Give as a cute gift, or save it until you're ready to use it yourself. If the potpourri ever needs a refresh, just add a few drops of essential oils to make it as good as new.
