How is it made?

The Biznaga is a composition of  bunches of jasmine, but prepared in a special way. The structure of the biznaga is a dried thistle with narrow spikes coming out of its head. This part remains forever, so you can save it to make your own Biznaga every summer.

The decorative white flowers are Jasmine flowers taken early morning, when they are closed. Here there is the handcraft work,  attaching the buds on the dried stem. During the evening, the flowers will start opening, creating the wonderful Biznaga and  spreading the strong summery and nice aroma.
