Want a super simple way to make your whole home smell amazing and inviting? This stovetop potpourri is the perfect way to do just that! You could also do this in a small slow cooker set to low. This is also a great alternative to chemical products to make your home smell great. Grab a small pot and let this simmer!
Stovetop Simmering Potpourri – Orange, Vanilla, Cinnamon
Simply add a couple cups of water to a pot on low to medium heat.
Add in a few orange slices, a cinnamon stick or two, and either a splash of vanilla extract or real vanilla bean and let sit.
The aroma is simply delicious and a great scent to have in your home as we transition into fall!
I love to have this going when busy with other household tasks like laundry and cleaning to help mask those cleaning product scents. You can mix up the scents too with a pinch of nutmeg – guests might think you’ve been baking! I usually let mine simmer for an hour or two before letting it cool and discarding (drain the water, throw away the rest).
