Stove-Top Potpourri


What a perfect weekend for Stove-Top Potpourri to fill your home with smells of the season. I love candles don’t get me wrong, but I am trying something a little new this weekend as we get ready for Christmas. This aroma is going to make the house smell fragrant and full of life. My husband may even ask what I am cooking :)


The ingredients are pretty simple to find for this recipe, I purchased the cinnamon sticks from Costco and the cloves from Molly Stones. The remaining items were easy to find at your local grocery store. The cloves might be a little expensive, but once you have them it’s a wonderful spice to have in the cabinet for a quick pumpkin bread recipe.


This Simmering Stove-Top Potpourri is a great mixture of spices to fill your home with this holiday season. I’ve also seen recipes that mix cranberries in as well.


  • 1/2 lemon, sliced thin

  • 1/2 an apple, sliced

  • 4 tsp cinnamon sticks, or 1/2 ground cinnamon

  • 2 tbsp whole cloves

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • water

  1. Combine all ingredients together into a large pot and allow to simmer and fill your home with wonderful scents of the holidays.
