Homemade Stovetop Christmas Potpourri

Aside from decorations, baking and gift-giving, nothing screams Christmas more to me than homemade stovetop Christmas potpourri.

For me, the holidays just aren’t complete without the delicious aroma of Christmas. A homemade stovetop potpourri is a quick and inexpensive way to make your home smell like the holidays in just minutes.

Homemade Stovetop Christmas Potpourri

Here's what you'll need:
{1} whole orange
{1/2} cup cranberries
{1} Tbsp. whole cloves
{3} sticks of cinnamon
A few drops of vanilla extract
A sprinkle of grated nutmeg or cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and keep on your stovetop as long as desired.

One batch of stove top potpourri will stay good for weeks {the mix will turn brown, but it will still smell delicious}. Just add water as needed to your pot and don't be afraid to experiment! Throw in berries, grapefruit, lemons or all spice berries. Adding a few sprigs of fresh balsam or pine is a great additive as well.
