"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."

    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.
