Smells of the Season.

Do you smell that?
Smells like warm weather.

Making a stove top potpourri mix is a quick inexpensive way to make your home smell delicious!

Throw sliced lemon, rosemary and a teaspoon or 2 of vanilla extract in a saucepan and fill with water.
Place on a low setting burner and enjoy!
Don't let the water completely evaporate, keep refilling.
One mix will stay good for a week or so.

This will also make a perfect homemade gift.
Have fun with the packaging and don't forget to include the instructions! 


  1. This looks lovely! It SNOWED yesterday! I definitely will have to do this!

    1. Yikes! Still snowing??? This will definitely bring some spring indoors! Stay warm!!!

  2. This is the Best. Smell. Evahhhhh. I tried it last year and LOVED it. However, I'm the worst at keeping up with these sorts of things...and left it on too long. And ruined an awesome sauce pan. I've heard it's the smell they have going at Williams Sonoma! Mmmmm...
