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.

I have this on the stove right now. I was wondering what to do with that big bottle of cinnamon sticks I bought last year. Thanks for making the house smell good.

I was absolutely intrigued to try this. It is very intense with cloves. I am making this for Christmas gifts along with fudge and english toffee. I think all my SIL and MIL will appreciate something natural and homemade.

I justlove this combination Christmas or not. I put it all in an old crock pot on low and let it simmer. House smells so wonderful. However the grandkids think I am baking so have to have a batch of ginger crinkles ready for them.

Very nice! Kinda reminds me of old spice. The clove smell is dominant. I can use this all year round. It does a great job of traveling the whole house. I used leftover lemon and orange peel. I used fresh grated nutmeg. It simmered on my stovetop for hours before I shut it off and it still has a lot left...I think I'll refill it tomorrow and let it go again. LOVE IT. Thanks lazyme! Made for Holiday Tag.
