I’m forever searching for ways to make our home even cozier this time of year! Whether hosting or just hanging at home with the family, stovetop potpourri is such a lovely way to add that extra ambiance through scent!
We always have our diffusers going with festive essential oils, and now that I’ve added this stovetop simmer pot it really takes things next level. This fills the house with the loveliest smells!

+ A pot +
(Any other aromatics that you like!)
Fill a pot with water. I LOVE this glass pot! Slice up your apples and oranges, and add them into the pot with your cinnamon sticks, cranberries, rosemary and clove. Bring to a low simmer.
Allow to simmer for as long as you’d like!
I like to make sure I am supervising this, and not leaving fully unattended, especially if you have small kiddos! We always turn this off if we are leaving the house.
You’ll want a pot holder set for removing the lid or if you have to move your pot at all while it’s still hot.
The smell is SO dreamy, it really smells like you have fresh cider going or something festive baking!
You could totally create a christmas stovetop potpourri gift by purchasing the glass pot, and including some of the dry ingredients in a little baggy. You could even add a christmas stovetop potpourri printable with the step by step instructions! Such a thoughtful hostess gift for them to enjoy this season!
