Stove Top Potpourri

While looking through Aubree's pinterest boards, I came across a homemade potpourri that was supposed to smell just like Christmas.
I went to the store and bout the items, came home and cooked it, and IT DOES!

It smells completley fantastic.

The absolute greatest thing about it is that it last all season long. You can make 1 batch and it will lasts for several weeks (well thats what the website says. I'm only on day two) and your kitchen smells so wonderful.

All you have to do is leave it on the lowest setting of your stove all day but don't let the water run out, keep filling it up with water throughout the day.
At the end of the day, I just pour mine into a mason jar and stick it in the fridge until the next morning but the lady one the website said you can leave it on your stove (turned off) overnight. I didn't want to do that.

What your going to need:
  • 1 orange peel
  • 1/2 cup of cranberries
  • 3 sticks of cinnamon
  • 1 T of whole cloves
  • a pinch of nutmeg (optional)
All you do is pour the mixture into a pot and warm all day!
It smells fantastic.
