The Scents of Christmas

If you're like me, when you entertain you like to have your house smell lovely, almost as if you have been baking all day, but that requires you to... well... bake all day. So, if you're entertaining over the holidays and you don't have time to make your home smell like a sugar plum exploded, or cinnamon sticks have been dancing in it all day here is a recipe for you. 

This stove top potpourri is a easy way to add a pretty holiday scent in your home. Instead of lighting a bunch of candles to make your house smell good, you just allow the ingredients to simmer on your stove. 

1 Fresh Orange {sliced}
1 Fresh Lemon {sliced}
4 Cinnamon Sticks {broken up}
3 Tablespoons of Whole Cloves
2 Tablespoon of Whole All Spice
1 Tablespoon of Ground Nutmeg
1 Tablespoon of Ground Cinnamon
4 Cups of Water

I love the look of the lemon slices with the cinnamon sticks (and the smell!). I know that I will be using this  to help add an inviting scent to my home this Christmas season. What are some of your favourite ways to make your home smell great? Do you have a favourite air freshener, or candle? Maybe you prefer the smell of your Christmas tree and a sweet holiday snack.
