How To: Make Your Own Potpourri
There are several benefits to making your own potpourri – you can create your own custom scent and arrange the pieces however you like. Always leave the potpourri out so the scent will spread and fill the room, as opposed to candles that will only fill your space with good aromas while they are burning.
Here’ a simple mixture for the fall:
- 2 oranges
- 6 cinnamon sticks
- 2 tablespoons whole cloves
- 2 cups of water
Place all the ingredients in a crockpot and turn the heat up to high. Leave the lid open and your whole house will instantly smell like citrus and cinnamon. The water will absorb, so add more water every couple of hours as needed!
