Me and my BH loved this stuff. It smells so good and its all natural. I am also going to make this for Thanksgiving and Christams. The aroma of this made you just want to go over and dip you out a cup of it like tea (of course we didn't) but it sure smelled wonderful. I am going to heat it up again tonight when I get home. Thank you for a wonderful recipe that will make any house smell warm and cozy.

Beautiful, natural, aromatic, perfect for the setting in cooler months and easy on the pocket potpourri! This was simmering on my stove this evening, giving out its mesmerising and tantalising aroma, as the sun went down and there were these pink clouds floating across the sky, the naughty zephyr playing with my loose strands of hair, me on the international telephone line talking to my BF - Danny, and the moon rising to her crowning glory- perfectly romantic moment! My heart let out a sigh and I just wished I had Danny(The love of my life) here with me to "smell" this rather than on the telephone... Thank You so much(with all my heart!) for sharing this. This sure radiates all the warmth in your soul across the many miles :) I have plans to use this to make my microwave oven smell fresh as an orange now onwards - I'll just pour this magical creation into an oven-proof bowl, start my oven and let it move in it for a few minutes, "wow"- Now I got to get going to do just that! "Mmmmmmmmmm"! I'll make these for X'mas gifts this year, you're wonderful to share this - a zillion thanks!

I doubled the recipe, started it on the stove and when it warmed up I spooned some into heated fondue pots that I placed all around the house. Thanks for the post.
