Have you ever made homemade potpourri? I'd love to have your recipe.

One of the easiest scents I use is a pan of water with cinnamon in it simmering on the stove for a little while. Makes the whole house smell great and couldn't be any simpler to do.

I've done pumpkin pie spice and water in a pan simmering. I've also done something like this: http://www.fancyhouseroad.com/2012/08/15/diy-fall-potpourri-party-favors/ - but I've not used the orange in it. I'm a fall person so those are the ones I usually stick to.

Simmering water with spices never occured to me. Thank you both so much.
