We are huge fans of homemade stovetop potpourri, so today, we’re bringing you this easy hack to make your house smell deliciously cozy for fall! This Autumn Stovetop Potpourri is a better-for-you option than candles and air fresheners and smells even better.

Autumn Stovetop Potpourri


  • 1-2 oranges sliced
  • 1-2 apples sliced
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 3 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 tbsp cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 whole nutmeg seeds
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Combine all the ingredients in a medium-sized sauce pot. Fill the pot with water until it reaches 3/4 the way full. Place the pot on the stove and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, adding more water as needed. Simmer for 1-4 hours, and then let it cool overnight. Simmer again the next day; just be sure to keep adding more water every time you reheat it.
