Simple and great smelling. I like to mix the dry ingredients up in little ziplocks to have them ready to add to water during the holiday season.
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 3 bay leaves
- 1⁄4 cup whole cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 lemon slices, fresh or 2 tablespoons dried lemon peel
- 2 tablespoons orange peel or 2 tablespoons dried orange peel
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 quart water
- Mix all ingredients in medium saucepan.
- Simmer on low heat.
- Add more water as needed.
There is nothing nicer than having your house smell like the holidays with the citrus and spices in this mix. I'll be using this often over the next month and I will be sharing the recipe with my daughter and neighbor as well. Made for the For Your Consideration tag game, December, 2014.
Great potpourri recipe! I used dried orange leaves instead of the orange peel, and it worked great. It doesn't really remind me of Xmas though, so I'll be using it whenever :)
Loved this, used fresh lemons and orange peel. Have to admit for having a rather small house, its very nice to have this great aroma throughout the entire house, Made for PRMR tag.
