***Simple Christmas Potpourri

Published October 27, 2013 by rumbl3

I love the smell of Cinnamon/Orange/Apple wafting thru the air of my house… It reminds me of holidays.

And face it… we have all spent lots of money on the oils, plug-ins, and potpourris to capture this smell.

Here is a simple (really!) recipe to get those holiday scents without breaking the bank!


In the bottom of a soup mug:

2 tsp. cinnamon

Squeeze one section of an orange and drop peel in cup


2 tbs. applesauce

Boil water in the teapot.

Pour 3/4c. over cinnamon/orange/applesauce. Stir well.

Now wasn’t that easy?

When the water starts cooling the cinnamon will become gloppy goo. To refresh potpourri- remove goop, add a little more cinnamon and applesauce, and pour more boiling water over it.

Try moving the steaming cup from location to location. Or make multiple cups for different rooms.

Happy crafting!
