DIY Simmering Potpourri

A few years ago when we were selling our home I wanted to make the house smell inviting for anyone walking through. However, I didn’t want to actually bake a pan of cookies or muffins to achieve that welcoming aroma. Then, I remembered a trick my mom used to use when I was a little girl.

Heat a small pan filled with about 2 inches of water on the stove.

Add about 2 Tablespoons of your spice of choice. My mom used to use cinnamon and to this day I tend to do the same. You can also use cinnamon sticks (about 2).

You can also use pumpkin pie spice mix!! For an easy DIY recipe click here.

Bring the mixture to a simmer on the stove and viola! Your entire house will smell amazing in less than 5 minutes.
