Are you headed to a Thanksgiving dinner or hosting? If you are hosting, you could make this for your guests to enjoy. If you are heading to a get-to-gether, you could make this as a gift for your host!  Of course,  I love to incorporate essential oils into my DIY gifts:)  This simple potpourri in some cute packaging is a easy gift that works well for any occasion. You can even include a bottle of the oil or blend that you use. Our recommended ingredients and oils are perfect for fall, but you can change them up depending on the season or holiday.



Select a few of the following for a simple potpourri.

  • Orange Peels
  • Star Anise
  • Bay Leaves
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Vanilla Beans, cut into small pieces
  • Cardamom Seeds
  • Dried Apple Slices
  • Candied Ginger
  • Whole Cloves
  • All Spice
  • Whole Nutmeg

Recommended Oils:

Choose one oil or create your own blend to customize the scent.

  • Cinnamon Bark
  • Cassia
  • On Guard Protective Blend
  • Vetiver
  • Wild Orange
  • Clove
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom


  1. Place desired herbs and spices into a container or bowl. Mix and assemble as desired.
  2. Add 3–5 drops of essential oil on top of potpourri. After a couple weeks, the aroma will start to fade. Add a few more drops to revive it.
  3. Easy peasy and smells so yummy!! Enjoy!

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
