Preparing Christmas Potpourri
It’s that time of the year!! I am truly excited about Christmas, and all it brings with it. My other mid-20 friends mock for the excitement I have, but, I don’t care LOL I am as excited as the Elf ^^
So, I decided to make my home smell like Christmas. Here are 3 potpourri recipes to try.
1. Orange Potpourri
- 1 Orange peels
- 2-3 Cinnamon sticks
- 3 bay leaves
- 1 tbsp cloves
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
*All I had was dried cranberries, so I used 1 tbsp of that.
2. Apple – Cinnamon Potpourri
- 2 Red apple peels
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 tbsp cloves
3. Orange – Vanilla Potpourri
- 1 Orange Peels
- 3 Cinnamon Sticks
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
*I used vanilla powder
Time to Make Home Smell Like Christmas
Boil some water on the stove. Pour all the ingredients into the boiling water and, let it simmer for as long as you want it to.
You can keep it simmering in the kitchen. it still will feel your house with the delicious smell but if you wish, you can put it into a bowl and keep it in your own room, on your desk.
I put it into a bowl and kept it on my nightstand. As I was sleeping I could smell the scent, it was so soothing to sleep in that aura. Now your room also smell like Christmas.
Or you can put it in a jar or in air-tight container and keep it until you need it the next time. Let it cool and put it in the refrigerator. Next time when you have guests over, you can put it into a pot and let it simmer on the stove, again.
