How To Make Your House Smell Like Williams-Sonoma!
Classic Williams-Sonoma Recipe
You’ll need :
- 2 lemons (sliced)
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract,
- 2 sprigs of rosemary,
- and a pot full of boiling water
Combine ingredients in the pot of boiling water, and simmer on low for hours of enjoyment.
My Own Recipe
Three sliced oranges, two sticks of cinnamon, and four branches of Rosemary are all you’ll need to make your home smell incredible. Add ingredients to a small pot filled with 3/4 a cup of water and simmer for all-day scent!
**Hint: I learned from the article above that you can actually save your potpourri and use it for days at a time! When you’re done heating your recipe on the stove, pour out the water and place the oranges, cinnamon, and rosemary in a container. Place in the refrigerator. This will keep for multiple days after the first use!

Can you put this on the stove, after heated strain & then put in a diffuser & wax warmer?
I think no to a diffuser because it’s not oil based , but yes to a wax warmer , because it would be Ike simmering under low low heat
