Fill your house with the beautiful smells of fall with potpourri made in the crockpot. Fall Potpourri with the fresh scents of orange and rosemary, combined with warm cinnamon and clove is a wonderful, inexpensive way to make your home cozy and fresh.
Today is the first day of fall and I couldn’t be happier! I’m ready for “sweater weather” and anything that has to do with autumn. I’ve been doing a bit of house fluffing, putting out a few new pillows, a couple of soft throws and now I’m ready to jump in with the laster layer of coziness – making my home smell beautiful. How do I do it? I grab my crockpot and a few seasonal ingredients, then I sit back and enjoy.
Making seasonal potpourri in the slow cooker is such a clever way to bring pretty scents into your home. It’s so much cheaper than buying candles and honestly, I love the freshness that fruits and herbs give off. This fall blend of potpourri is not heavy or perfumy. It has just the right amount of warm, comforting aromas that make the season so special.
What you’ll need for Crock-Pot Fall Potpourri

How do I make Fall Potpourri
Start by slicing one to two oranges. Next, fill a small crockpot with water, about 3/4 full. Place orange slices in the water and layer on the cinnamon sticks and cloves. Lay the rosemary on top. Turn the temperature to high and set for 3 to four hours. Make sure to leave the lid off. Check every hour or so to adjust water level. The potpourri will last about four days before it’s time to refresh with fruit and spices.
