There are two basic types of homemade potpourri recipes: dried and simmering. Making dried potpourri - the kind that sits around in a bowl, letting off its wonderful scent - is fun, easy and affordable.
While floral potpourri is fragrant, potpourri made from dried fruit imparts a zest that fills your home with a crisp, fresh scent. Drying fruit is easy, and part of the fun in making this potpourri is choosing your favorite fruits to mix together.
You want to add at least 8 drops of essential oil for each cup of plant material you're using. Two cups of dried flowers = 16 drops of essential oils. Once you've added the oils to the potpourri, place it into a plastic sealable baggie or a jar with a lid
I love this easy recipe for slow cooker potpourri - it smells just like Christmas! I can leave it out all day long and don't have to worry about burning down the house, OR it can be adapted for stove (Stove Top Ideas)
