HOLIDAY ESSENTIAL OIL POTPOURRI

  

The Holidays are not only a time for beautiful decorations, family get- togethers and the joy of giving gifts, it is also a special time to excite the senses with lovely fragrances. 


So this year, make your Holiday Season even more festive with Essential Oils. 


I thought we would try something different with our Essential Oils this month. I have a few stove top potpourri mixtures that I think will make your home smell like the Holidays without a tree. 


Also, stove top potpourri makes a wonderful gift. You can use a small basket, place the ingredients for your favorite potpourri  in a small gift bag with a card of instructions. 


The one I really love is Christmas Tree Stove Top Potpourri:


½ cup juniper berries

1 sprig fresh rosemary

2 sprigs fresh pine needles (or other evergreen)

Water 


Another one of my favorites is Fresh and Clean Stove Top Potpourri:


1 lemon, sliced

3 drops vanilla extract

2 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Water


This is another fabulous smelling potpourri- Cozy Christmas:


2 oranges or clementines, sliced

2 cinnamon sticks

5 whole cloves

Water


Here's one for apple lovers-Apple Pie:


1 apple, sliced

2 cinnamon sticks

5 whole cloves

10 allspice berries

5 drops of vanilla abstract & Water


For all of these potpourris combine all ingredients in a pot, and cover with 1” of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on the lowest setting on the stove. 

You can save the potpourri overnight by removing from the heat, cover with lid and leave out at room temperature. In the morning add more water, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on the lowest setting. 


The potpourris will not just make your home fragrantly festive they will help to protect your immune system and keep you healthy so you can get all your shopping and decorating done.
