Now, I KNOW I can’t be the only one who loves shopping at Williams Sonoma, but loves it even more because the store just always smells so dang good. If you share my same love of the scents, keep reading for a few of my favorite DIY potpourri recipes. They’ll make your home smell seriously incredible, and (almost…) like Williams Sonoma!
You’ll need 2 lemons (sliced), 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract, 2 sprigs of rosemary, and a pot full of boiling water. Combine ingredients in the pot of boiling water, and simmer on low for hours of enjoyment.
Three sliced oranges, two sticks of cinnamon, and four branches of Rosemary is all you’ll need to make your home smell incredible. Add ingredients to a small pot filled with 3/4 a cup of water and simmer for all day scent!
**Hint: I learned from the article above that you can actually save your potpourri and use it for days at a time! When you’re done heating your recipe on the stove, pour out the water and place the oranges, cinnamon, and rosemary in a container. Place in the refrigerator. This will keep for multiple days after the first use!
All great potpourri recipes begin with the slicing of a citrus fruit! In this recipe, you’ll use one sliced orange, a 2 inch piece of fresh ginger, and a couple drops of almond extract. Alternatively, you can use cinnamon sticks (in place of Ginger) and Star Anise instead of almond extract. Either scent will leave guests wondering how your home smells so fantastic!
