This will make your house smell SOOOOOOO "Holiday"!! I have made this for 4 years in a row, at Christmas time. It is neat, because you make everything in a saucepan.........turn on your burner when you want "that wonderful Holiday aroma throughout your house", then you turn of your burner, but leave the pan for whenever you want another whiff....then you just your burner back on. NOTE: ALWAYS make sure there is water in the pan!!!! If the water level gets low, you just add water...I keep mine going all during the Holidays, although I have added a few more spices, according to how strong it still smells, after a week of using. ALso, one year it went moldy!!!! Guess I had been using too long.


  1. Combine everything in a small saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil, reduce heat to lowest setting.
  3. Let simmer for hours.
  5. Add more water as needed.

I too enjoyed the aroma, but found it was not as strong as I anticipated and did not permeate past my kitchen. Thank you Brittney for sharing the recipe.

This is very nice but doesn't give off as much scent as I thought it would. My kitchen smelled heavenly but it didn't make it out into the living room. I will keep messing with it, because I really love the scents! Thanks for sharing. ;)
