Holiday Spice Simmering Stove Top Potpourri
Growing up potpourri was a staple in our home. My mom would always purchase the pre-made kinds at our local stores. Ames, Bradly's etc. I vividly remember her also purchasing one that had to simmer on the stove top. The house smelled amazing until she burned it, LOL. Now, I believe that failed because the stove was on too high or the pot ran out of water...
Now as an adult. I too love potpourri the pre-made version and the stove top simmer kind. During the holiday times, I would always see the stove top version of potpourri floating around on Pinterest. However, I would always be out one or two ingredients. I finally said that I was going to use what I had on hand and bring the holiday scent to our home. The potpourri did take a while to bring the scent around my home. If you're thinking about making this recipe for your next holiday party. I would suggest putting it on the stove top an hour prior to having your guest arrive.
Anywho, this recipe is super simple to make.
