Use potpourri for a simmering scent. Boil six cups of water in a medium sized pot. Bring it to boil, uncovered. Add about half a cup to a cup of dry potpourri. Then, turn down the heat until the mixture simmers. Regularly check if there’s a need to add more water to the pot. Include all kinds of spices and dried flower petals in the potpourri to achieve the best effect. Buy enough variety of potpourris if possible. The enchanting smell from simmered potpourri will mesmerize household members and guests. It’s an inexpensive and easy method to create an ambiance for a party or gathering.

Use potpourri as a home accent. Get a clear decorative glass. Fill it with potpourri. Add water, and top it with various fresh flowers. The combination of visual aesthetics and fragrance of fresh and dried flowers is captivating. Determine the best places to place the potpourri. Among the best places are the window, counter tops and empty tables in a highlighted space. Make two or three decorative glasses with potpourri to intensify the overall accent of your home, especially if there’s a special occasion.

Use fake plants to show off potpourri. Put potpourri instead of putting fake moss in a fake plants’ base. The seemingly lackluster fake plants will become remarkable. You can put the fake plants base beside the decorative base or put it somewhere else where it will be highlighted. Living room and near windows are the best locations to place fake plants with potpourri.
