I start this DIY Holiday Stovetop Potpourri on our stovetop around Thanksgiving and burn it all the way until the new year. I’ve actually been known to sometimes burn it into our Florida semi-winters. I know it’s definitely my family’s favorite and they probably wouldn’t mind if I burned it year-round!
What I really love about this DIY Holiday Stovetop Potpourri, besides the smell, is that you can reuse it for up to a week. Store it in the fridge or just leave it on the stove (covered) until you’re ready to reheat it the next day.
