Some of my greatest memories of the holidays growing up are actually the smells of Christmas. My Mom always used to make potpourri on the stove top and I can distinctly remember that sweet smell that filled our house. I created my own Christmas scent that fills our house during the holiday season. Below is my recipe. These also make great hostess or party favor gifts!
- 1 Orange
- 1 Cup Fresh Cranberries
- 2-3 Sprigs of Pine or Rosemary
- 1 Tablespoon Cloves
- 2-4 Cinnamon Sticks
*Slice orange and place in a medium saucepan with cranberries, pine, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and 2 cups of water
*Simmer mixture and turn heat to low. Your house will then smell amazing!
