This homemade cranberry stove top potpourri recipe will fill your house with the delicious scents of the season! I really love using simmering potpourri to scent my home. So many of the air fresheners I see in the store use artificial fragrances. Those aren’t good for my family or my pets to inhale. By using a natural homemade cranberry stove top potpourri recipe, I can have all the yummy scents without worries about what I’m inhaling.

Cranberry Stove Top Potpourri Recipe
What makes this cranberry stove top potpourri recipe a bit different is that it uses fresh ingredients. Many potpourris you buy in the store have been dried and some of them have preservatives or chemicals added to them so they stay good. These ingredients are fresh from the grocery store. You simply add them to a pot of water on the stove and turn it on to simmer for a few hours.
