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.
Loved this!! I just love the smell of holidays and you have caught it with this fantastic potpourri! This is a recipe I will be using every year, thanks for the post.
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.
Beautiful smell. thanks.
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!

This made the house smell so nice on Christmas Eve! I'll be brewing some of this all winter!
