Fill your home with the scent of the holidays..

To get myself excited and prepared, I make my favorite holiday potpourri every year, as soon as Halloween is over. It’s something that even my husband can’t complain about, because it smells that good! So get ready ladies, I am going to share the recipe I use with you!

Christmas Scent Recipe

3 (4-inch) cinnamon sticks
3 bay leaves
1/4 cup whole cloves
1/2 lemon, halved and sliced into thin strips
1/2 orange, halved and sliced into thin strips
1 quart water

Combine all ingredients in small saucepan, and bring to boil; reduce heat and let simmer as long as you’d like.

Add water as needed. Lasts for several days (and best if stored in refrigerator).

Enjoy Nestlette’s!
