DIY Friday: Smells of the Season – Easy Christmas Potpourri Mix

Give your home a heavenly holiday smell this season with an easy evergreen, cinnamon, orange, and spice stove top potpourri mix. This lovely aroma lingers throughout your home and greets your guests with the most wonderful scents of the season. I love to use homemade gifts like these to give away as gifts to friends and family. What’s even better is that it’s so easy to make and super cheap! Check out the recipe below:

Holiday Stove Top Potpourri Mix

  • One whole orange peel
  • ½ cup cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp. whole cloves
  • 3 sticks of cinnamon
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg

Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and fill the pan with water. Place on the smallest burner of the stove on the lowest setting. Refill water as needed. Don’t let the water completely evaporate and refill it when you turn it on. Voila!

BDB Tip: One mix can stay good for weeks and even if it turns brown from heating, it continues to smell wonderful.
