Holiday Stove Top (or Crock Pot) Potpourri

by sunshine on November 19, 2011

I love this potpourri mixture.  I like that it has some citrus in it.  The original recipe I found did not include nutmeg, I just tried it one time and really liked it.  This is a great way to get your house smelling like the holidays!  It also makes a great gift.  Just place all of the ingredients in a container (leaving orange whole) and include directions.

Holiday Stove Top Potpourri


  • one whole orange or just the orange peel
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp. whole cloves
  • 3 sticks of cinnamon or a small handful of small pieces of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of grated nutmeg, if desired

Quarter the orange.  Put all the ingredients into a saucepan or crock pot.  Fill pan with water.  Place on the stove on the smallest burner, on the lowest setting.  Refill water as needed.
