Stovetop potpourri is a popular holiday activity, but one that easily works year-round to freshen up the aroma of homes. After a long winter, it's an easy way to create that "home sweet home" feeling when it's time to clean for spring. When looking for an easy gift, gather the ingredients together in a mason jar, add a bow and share as a thoughtful creation.
1. Gather your favorite springtime scents and add them to a small pot, or even a mini crock pot. For spring, fresh clean scents, such as lemon, orange, grapefruit, eucalyptus and rosemary, are wonderful.
2. Add 2 to 3 cups of water and let the ingredients simmer while enjoying a customized scent.
3. The scent should linger for a few days. If a stronger scent is desired, simply leave it simmering longer.
