Revive your home and perk up your senses with homemade liquid potpourri. A few items from your cupboard or refrigerator are all you need to create an aroma that is pleasing. Use potpourri in the bathroom or bedroom to create a mood. Potpourri mixes can be purchased from stores, but you can experiment with different combinations of fruits and spices until you find the perfect fragrance for your home.
Fill a potpourri crock or a small crock pot half full of water. Turn the pot on to start heating the water.
Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the water to bind different scents and reduce water absorption.
Create a long-lasting citrus aroma from orange peels. Cut a lemon and lime into small pieces and add to the orange mixture for a fresh fragrance.
Select spices for the smell of home cooking. Cinnamon sticks, vanilla, nutmeg and almond mixed together will fill the room with a lovely scent.
