Today, I am sharing one of my very favorite Christmas traditions. Simmering Stovetop potpourri- Also called a simmer pot. The smell of this beautiful blend always reminds me of Christmas; it’s easy to make, and you probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboard already!
Stovetop potpourri (also known as a simmer pot) is a blend of ingredients added to a pot of water that will make your house smell delightful!
It is easy to make simmering Potpourri. I start making it in the Fall and usually have a pot through the holidays. You can use a regular saucepan or buy one of the pretty glass ones and make it part of your decor. You could also use a small crockpot instead of the stovetop.
You could also use:
I use whatever I happen to have on hand. That is the beauty of Stovetop Potpourri. Check to see what you have in your pantry! I added pine needles and cranberries to this recipe because I had them left over from a Holiday arrangement I had made.
Add all your ingredients into a small pot and add water until it reaches an inch or two below the rim.
Set the pot on your stove and bring the water to a boil, then drop the heat down to low.
I leave my Potpourri on the stove for 3-4 days, adding water whenever it gets low.
That’s all there is to it. It’s simple and easy and smells like going home for Christmas to me.
That’s all for today,
Until next time,
