I love the scent of warm cinnamon so much I made a homemade cinnamon liquid potpourri mixture to use in my candle burner. This homemade cinnamon potpourri smells way better than any cinnamon candle does because it is truer to the cinnamon scent and it leaves a warm clean spicy smelling aroma throughout the air in my home. Best of all if was very affordable to make and burns wonderfully in my candle burner.
The natural ingredients needed to make my homemade cinnamon liquid potpourri are 3 freshly ground cinnamon sticks, 50 drops of cinnamon essential oil, 10 drops of red food coloring and about 2 cups of water. All these ingredients can be found at a grocery store, herbal store, and even a dollar store.
The way to make the homemade cinnamon liquid potpourri is to take a large empty plastic bottle with a cover on it and funnel the 3 freshly ground cinnamon sticks, 50 drops of cinnamon essential oil, 10 drops of red food coloring and 2 cups of water into it. Then remove the funnel from the bottle and place a cover onto the plastic bottle and give the ingredients a good shake together. After you will have a homemade red cinnamon liquid potpourri to use in your candle burner to help add a lovely warm spicy cinnamon aroma to your home.
The way I like to use the homemade liquid cinnamon potpourri is by pouring about 4 tablespoons into my candle burner. Then I take a teas light and place that inside my candle burner and light it up with a candle lighter. After I place the candle burner in a safe place in my home and allow it to release the wonderful warm cinnamon aroma into the air of my home. Just be careful and not forget that you have it lit because sometimes the candle burner does run out of the potpourri and you do have to refill it or the candle underneath the burner with keep burning and release a nasty burnt cinnamon aroma into the air of your home. The potpourri usually last in the burner though for a good 3 to 4 hours before you have to refill it and any good tea light usually last about 4 to 6 hours so you should be okay if you keep an eye on your candle burner.
I do hope those of you who make this homemade liquid cinnamon potpourri enjoy making it, but I also hope you enjoy using it in your candle burner to help create a warm cinnamon aroma throughout your home.
