How to Make Potpourri on the Stovetop

Once the weather becomes chilly, I tend to enjoy spending more time at home, indoors. When the sun goes down and temperatures drop, I’d rather stay cozy indoors.

Making potpourri on the stovetop is one of my favorite things to do in the fall. It’s so simple but makes your home smell amazing for days.

A great playlist, a little potpourri, and a cozy throw are all you really need to get through a chilly day. It helps pass the time and make days feel a little brighter. It seems to inspire me to organize, cook and maybe even clean!

Stovetop Potpourri – Perfect for Gifting

Do you ever have times where you want to give someone a little thank you gift, but you’re not sure what to give? I run into this problem all the time, and I usually result to something like a chocolate pie, or a batch of caramel cheesecake cookies.

The problem with that is sometimes I don’t know the person’s dietary restrictions, or food preferences, which can make the gesture counterproductive.

I solved this problem when I realized my homemade potpourri would make a great gift! I just place all of the ingredients into a cute bowl or basket, wrap it all with cellophane, and add a cute bow. Everyone always loves it and its a cute inexpensive gift for any occasion!

How to make your house smell good, actually, really amazing.

You could, of course, bake your favorite chocolate chip cookies, or even better, cookie brownies, I will never fault you for that, but baking every day isn’t easy on the hips.

So, I throw together a quick stovetop potpourri and warm it off and on for days. Yes, it lasts for days! Sometimes I’ll even add a little more water to it to keep it going.

I hope you love it as much as I do! What are some of your favorite ways to make the house smell great?

  1. This sounds heavenly! Do you refrigerate it between uses?

  2. Julie the aroma is floating all the way over here to my house!

  3. Do you just dump it in the trash when you are done? It seems like having a burner on for no reason would be a waste of energy… Not that that would be a deal breaker for me! With a dog and two litter boxes, we need all the help we can get, smell-wise.
