The Smells Of The SEASON

Making my home smell wonderful is important to me this time of year.  A stove top 'potpourri' mix is an easy inexpensive way to make your home smell wonderful. The smells of evergreen, cinnamon, orange and spice all mean the Holiday Season is here! Let's celebrate!

Packaging the mix in a Holiday bag makes a wonderful gift for friends, neighbors, teachers and co-workers. Throw it in a nice basket with a dish towel and a loaf of quick bread. It's such a thoughtful gift that will be greatly appreciated.
Here’s how I make my concoction:

Holiday Stove Top Potpourri Mix

1 quarter lemon
1 quarter orange 
1/2 cup cranberries
1 Tbsp. whole cloves or ground cloves
3 sticks of cinnamon or ground cinnamon
a bit of grated or ground nutmeg, if you have it
Quarter the orange. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan. Fill pan with water. 
Place on the stove and set on low. Let it simmer. Refill water as needed.

It’s just that easy.

I love to use an orange and lemon that are starting to get old, as well as last years spices. 
It’s not the Holidays without the delicious scent… it makes me think of baking Christmas bread and wassail.  Yum!
A stove top potpourri mix makes a perfect easy gift this season. 
It is inexpensive, homemade and your friends will LOVE the thought!  
These spicy smells reflect the warmth and charm or your winter home. 
An inviting place for your family and friends to relax and enjoy themselves.

Simmer your house happy, you'll be glad ya did!
