Fall (Cinnamon Orange) Slow Cooker Potpourri

Get ready — the official first day of Fall is this Wednesday — September 23rd! Ya’ll know I am beyond ready. I think I have been ready since July. I have needed the house to start smelling like Fall too, so I whipped up some of this Fall (Cinnamon Orange) Slow Cooker Potpourri. I am over the moon that my favorite season is finally here! Bring on pumpkin everything!

Also, all the shows are coming back this week and I am probably a lot more excited than I should be. But seriously, the girls are in bed by about 7:30 and we are locked in for the night and I need something to break up our nights. I have spent the summer working, reading and Jorge and I have even played cards…but I am ready for some good old fashioned television.

I have been making this crock pot potpourri non stop the past few weeks. It’s crazy easy and smells so much more fresh than a candle. Don’t get me wrong, I love candles…however a lot of time they smell too sweet to me. Personally, I prefer a crisper cleaner smell. Which is where this awesome potpourri comes in! It’s just three simple scents: orange, cinnamon and clove!

Usually, I like to save the rinds from oranges we eat (in a ziplock bag in the freezer) and just pop them in the crock pot when I am ready. You can do this with any citrus, but for the fall smell I like oranges the best. For a different smell – rosemary and lemon is also a favorite of mine!

I hope you enjoy this as much as we have! It gives such a warm fall citrusy scent to the whole house and it’s incredibly easy to do!

 

UPDATE: I buy my cinnamon sticks cheaply at Walmart (in the Spanish section – I buy the brand Badia cinnamon sticks – about 6 sticks for $2) or on Amazon* (about 24 sticks for $6).
