Christmas Potpourri


It's December 5. It's raining, it's yucky. It's 60 degrees but we'll forget about that for the moment. Looking out my kitchen window...it looks cold. So we'll pretend. ;)  The Christmas tree is glittering and presents are wrapped.  That means it's time for the official scent of Christmas!  Some Christmas Potpourri! I just love the smell of warm citrus and spice. <3 It makes my laundry seem that much merrier. 

This pic is "before water" just because...well...it just looks prettier. :)


Quarter or slice 2 oranges (great use for over ripe oranges!)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 stick of cinnamon (you can omit this and use 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, I just think it's pretty. :)
2 cups of water

Simmer all in small saucepan on stove for 4-6 hours. Check it regularly to see if you need to add more water. Or put in small crock pot. I put mine on the stove first because I want to smell it 10 minutes ago. ;) Then I transfer it to my little dipper crock pot. 

Enjoy the smell of warmth and love. Aaaahh!
