Cranberry Stove Top Potpourri Recipe for the Holidays

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.

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.

  1. I see cranberries are the food of the week on The World's Healthiest Foods website I follow, and you have the same idea. The anise would smell so good and reminds me of the anise cookies I sometimes make at Christmas. I once had a simmering potpourri bowl you plugged in and added liquid potpourri but I like this better and I can use my (cheaper) gas stove.
  2. Grace Hodgin says:
    I love your suggestion on how to give this as gifts and know a lot of friends that would enjoy receiving this. Thanks for the great idea.
  3. I have never made my own potpourri! This is something I will have to try!
