Smells like Fall

I wish I was an oily Momma. It honestly looks fun and those bottles are so cute. The smells are spectacular. But alas, I’m just a regular candle girl. I do believe smells are a gift though. They do something inside our hearts and minds that make our spirits lift. A bouquet of roses, a batch of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies or even the overwhelming fragrance when you walk into Kirkland’s. They all expose a memory or feeling. Help your home feel like fall with this easy stove-top potpourri.

Apple Cinnamon Vanilla


1 apple, sliced
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla (maple extract would work, too)
2 c. water

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer on the stovetop. Remember to add more water after a couple hours so the contents don’t burn. Consider purchasing a small slow-cooker to heat the potpourri instead.

Thanks Winstead Wandering for this great recipe!
