My Little House Design: DIY Stovetop Scent

DIY Stovetop Scent

This weekend I hosted 1/5th of a progressive dinner. It was a lot of fun and since I was going to four other houses I decided to make hostess gifts. A few weeks ago I pinned a DIY jarred stovetop scent recipe (here's the link) and it's been in my brain since, so I decided to give it a go.

I think they turned out great! It was a super easy project and it only cost me about $5 per jar. I chose to do a citrus and cinnamon flavored one, but the link above has recipes for other non-Christmasy scents as well. 

Here is what I did:

1) Materials: 
Mason Jars (although you could reuse any jar and spray paint the lid)
Oranges (I used just under 1 per jar)
Whole cloves (I bought a small package that I split evenly between the jars)
Cinnamon sticks (I put about 2-3 in each jar)
Allspice (I did about 3 teaspoons in each jar)
Optional: Star anise (I couldn't find this for the life of me so I left it out)

2) Put it in a jar.

3) Add water.

That's it!

It was super easy and everyone seemed to really love it.

Here are the instructions for use:

1) Keep refrigerated
2) Pour into pot and simmer (I added a little more water but that's optional)
2) Let cool and pour back into jar. It should last for about two weeks or 3-4 uses. 

Not a super interior-designy post but it does make your home smell good so close enough.
