~POTPOURRI~

I am having fun making stove top potpourri this year! It not only smells good but it looks pretty too! Potpourri is also a fun, not so common gift. If you are using it as a gift then you will want to use all dried ingredients. Fresh ingredients are perfect for using at home. This is what I put in the potpourri pictured above:

~Dried Oranges

~Dried Apples

~Cinnamon Sticks

~Whole Clove

~Fresh Pine

~Other ideas are Cranberries, Whole Allspice, Dried Rosemary, Bay Leaves and any other citrus like Limes, Grapefruits and Lemons. Be creative!

Add your desired ingredients to a small pan. There are not set amounts to add of each thing. Fill with water and let simmer as long as you desire. I have heard you can use a batch for over a day! Add more water as needed and enjoy a festive smelling house! Let us all remember to shine Jesus this wonderful season!

Welcome! We are two sets of sisters that are best friends; longing to live the purpose and design that God has specially planned for every one of us. We would love to have you come along with us as we learn what it looks like to be a true woman glowing with an inward beauty that comes from our Heavenly Father.

One thought on “~POTPOURRI~

  1. Love it! This would be a great alternative to scented candles and wax warmers (we’ve always had both around, but I have a friend who has not hesitated to remind me of the chemical content of most scented products 😉 ).
