Spring Stovetop Potpourri Heating Instructions:

For each recipe combined all ingredients and let simmer on your stovetop. I typically will let it get up to a simmer and then turn the heat down, as low as it will go, and leave for four to six hours.

Save the Spring Stovetop Potpourri in a mason jar and store in the refrigerator and use again for up to two weeks. You might need to add a few more ingredients to freshen up the scents when you return it to the stovetop for the second time.
