Christmas Potpourri Recipe

This Christmas potpourri recipe only calls for a few ingredients and once you smell how amazing it is, you’re going to want to make a whole bunch more just for yourself!

Here is a suggested list of ingredients per gift jar, you may adjust the amounts as best fits your preferences and for what you may have on hand and of course the size of your jars.

Homemade Christmas Potpourri

  • Jars
  • 1-3 clementines or small oranges depending on the size of the opening of your jars.
  • About ¼ cup or fresh or dried cranberries
  • Clusters of crab apples (these stay on trees nicely until early winter in many regions, if not available, you can look for baby apples at the store or go with dried apple slices).
  • Dried rosemary or dried rosemary sprigs
  • Small pieces from fir trees
  • Cinnamon sticks

If you choose to cut the citrus fruits open, you’ll want to wait until the day you’ll be giving them out to ensure they are fresh and then encourage the recipients to add water and shimmer the ingredients within 24 to 48 hours.

Try to avoid gifting the jars with water already in them as the appearance of the ingredients may start to change before you have a chance to hand them out.
