Holiday Stovetop Potpourri

  • dried lemon peel
  • whole cloves
  • dried cranberries
  • nutmeg
  • allspice
  • cinnamon sticks
  • dried orange peel

Place in a pot filled with water and bring to a boil, turn the stove down and allow it to simmer as the fragrance fills your home with FRESH ingredients for the season!

Summer

For a summer recipe you can use

Citrus rinds including:

  • lemon
  • orange
  • grapefruit

and other ingredients like fragrant flower petals.

I use peony and Lilacs. I hang them upside down to dry before the wind blows them apart in my yard. I can keep them in a container and lightly mist them with water to make the fragrance come up but normally I stick them in jars and put them on the stove on a dreary day, making the house smell like spring!

***Be sure to set a timer to check the water so you don’t burn your pot. You can leave this on all day but you will have to add water as it simmers down***
