Tips & Suggestions

  1. What a great idea to get the wonderful scent without the chemicals in the store bought potpourri liquids. I can’t wait to have this going during the fall. I can picture it now, sitting in front of the fireplace with a cup of coffee taking in the scents. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Absolutely perfect for the upcoming holiday season! My Gran used to do the orange peels and cloves, I adore the addition of fresh apples, vanilla, and extra spices. Will be enjoying this soon 🙂

  3. I love this idea. These ingredients make me think of Christmas, Christmas markets and mulled wine! In fact, mulled wine here in Italy and in Germany has practically the same combination of spices and citrus! So I’d be tempted to add some wine and drink it! 🙂

  4. Cloves are one of my most favorite scents ever. I can already smell this recipe (in my head). Can’t wait to make it this fall.

  5. This must smell like heaven!!! So happy to see you using cloves, not that many people know what spice that is…Can’t wait to try this for fall:))

  6. Very creative idea! I’ve never tried this before, but I always love how my home smells after cooking or baking.
