Cranberry & Cinnamon Stove Top Potpourri

December 12, 2013

My best frenemy in the whole wide world is candles. The allure of warmth, scent, and coziness draws me in, but the pain of their pricey-ness is a harsh reality. I’m also typically less than impressed with their potency too. To get your whole house to smell good daily, you’d need the GDP of a small country. Dear candles, I want to love you. I really do. I just can’t make it work. It’s not me; it’s you.

This is why I go for simmering stove top potpourris. They get several rooms (for us, the whole apartment) in one sweep and are made with simple, inexpensive grocery store items. This cranberry & cinnamon one has been my favorite for Christmas time.
