Christmas Scent

  • 2-4 Tbsp. whole cloves
  • 2-4 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 bay leaves,
  • 1/2 orange sliced
  • 1/2 lemon sliced

Mix all together and put in a saucepan with 4 cups water. Simmer on low to release the fragrance. (or put in a potpourri pot.)

Ad

To give as a gift put ingredients in a decorative jar add enough water to fill the jar. If you wish for color, add a few drops of red food coloring.

Close securely and add a tag to explain how to use.

Store in fridge when not in use. Can be used over and over.

Note: I prefer to use the lesser amount of cloves so they won't overpower the other ingredients. Enjoy!

Editor's Note: This recipe could be changed by using other spices such as allspice, cardamom seeds, and nutmeg.
