Homemade Cinnamon Spice Potpourri

[ Potpourri simmering on the stove ]

There’s something to be said about the phrase “home for the holidays.” This homemade potpourri [ created by my step-mom, Julie ] is constantly brewing at my parents’ house during the holiday season. Its spicy essence creates a warm feeling of sensory memory. It immediately transforms the ambience to a Thanksgiving & Christmas feeling. The best part? No calories- the smell of festive spirit is enough to alleviate the temptation of baked goods.

Homemade Cinnamon Spice Potpourri

 

1 1/2 cup of spicy apple cider

1 gala apple

2 oranges

8 cinnamon sticks

6 whole nutmegs

1 dash of ground cloves

2 dashes of pumpkin spice

Put everything in to a small pot. When there are people at home, turn the stove on the lowest simmer [ do not forget to turn it off when no one is home!!! ]. This concoction last for two weeks; it is totally normal for the ingredients to shrivel up over the days, just keep adding splashes of spicy apple cider [ every few days ].

    I love this! Ive heard that scented candles are actually really toxic for you to breathe in, so this is such a great idea for a healthy, natural way to make your home smell amazing. Thanks so much!

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
