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.
