TWO Holiday Stove Top Potpourris

We are ready for Halloween over here but I will honest, I’m just about ready to put up my Christmas tree! Ok, now try not to make fun of me, but with Harlow now being two, this Fall and Halloween season has become so magical to experience through her eyes. It’s almost like her first fall now that she is old enough to understand and enjoy it so much more. During all of this, I can’t help but get excited for the upcoming holiday season! I picture her taking in all the magic and spirit of Christmas.
I have shared with you guys before my love for Stove Top Potpourris before here. and let me tell you with my ultra-heightened pregnancy sense of smell, this is just what the doctor ordered! Ok maybe not actually from my doctor but shew, I have needed it! I hate complaining about any aspect of pregnancy but my sense of smell is so sensitive right now, it’s actually driving me a little nuts. I feel like I can smell the garbage, any and all lingering cooked food and the dog! This Stove Top Potpourri actually fills my entire house (even upstairs) and never competes with any other smells. My husband loves coming home from work the house filled with this scent (and trust me, he is picky!)
•1 orange
•1-2 handfuls cranberries
•2-3 cinnamon sticks
•1 Tbsp. whole cloves
or
•1 apple
•1 tsp. vanilla exact
•2-3 cinnamon sticks
•1 Tbsp. whole cloves
All you do is quarter your orange or apple and toss all ingredients into a sauce pan or tea pot and simmer on low. Our teapot is on the small side so I’ll half the ingredients when using that. This stuff smells amazing and lasts for weeks by simply adding water.  Add water each time you use it and continue to add water as needed while using.
