So for this month, I am doing a spiced potpourri.  I just love combining cinnamon with an assortment of great smelling spices.

Homemade Simmering Potpourri  ~ A Perfect Gift


So did you see last months post?  I have 2 simmering potpourri recipes in it and a really creative DIY gift idea.

Homemade Simmering Stovetop Potpourri ~ Holiday Edition {A Great Holiday Gift}

Simmering Potpourri is great for the holidays or it could easily be made into a gift that could be given year round! Just get yourself some really cool ribbon and a very small simmering pot.

You can use any pot that you have but I like to use this one because it is a stainless steel pot and is inexpensive.  It is only 2 cups and can be used on the stovetop and heats up fast and stores easily.  So here is this months recipe!

DIY Homemade Simmering Potpourri ~ Spiced Edition
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broke in half
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin spice or ground cinnamon
  • ½ of a nutmeg, finely ground
  • 1 tsp whole cloves
  • 1½ cup water
  1. Mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to lowest simmer possible.
  3. Keep an eye on the simmering potpourri and refill with more water as needed.
  4. Simmer for 2-4 hours or however long you desire.
