springtime stovetop potpourri will bring all the happy feels straight into your kitchen!
One of my fave homemade gifts is my stovetop potpourri. It is SO easy to make, everyone loves it and I don’t have to worry about food restrictions, allergies or preferences.
I also love that it’s still a gift that comes from my kitchen!
The components are perfect for holiday time and cooler temps, and I wanted to make a version that felt (and smelled!) more like springtime – ESPECIALLY since we are at home more often than ever now.
So I came up with two varieties for a springtime stovetop potpourri, and they both smell heavenly!
I am ALL ABOUT THE CITRUS – so I started with lemons and limes, naturally. I paired the sweet limes with fragrant rosemary and vanilla, for a sweet, light combo that smells so so good.
For the lemon, I went a bit more savory – with lots of thyme and a handful of lavender buds. This mix has a more earthy, robust scent that kind of made me want to take a sip!
While I’ve provided recipes you can absolutely change things up, based on preferences and what you have. Any fragrant herbs will work, as well as your favorite spices – cinnamon, clove, anise, nutmeg.
I put some gifts together to drop off for a few friends – if you want to do the same simply use any repurposed jars or containers you have, and add a little tag with instructions!
3 – 5 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (storebought or make your own!)
Slice the fruit and place in a saucepan along with the remaining ingredients. Add 2 – 3 cups of water and bring to a simmer, checking occasionally to make sure the water level doesn’t get too low.
Note: You can re-use the potpourri a few times – simply store covered in the fridge and add water to cover as needed.
