Home for the Holidays Potpourri

Who can resist the charming aroma of cinnamon, clove, holly, and other traditional holiday scents? Having a home that smells of the season can take your holidays from lackluster to full of cheer!

  • 2 oranges
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, for appearance
  1. Cut the oranges into ½-inch-thick slices, and place in a medium-sized pot. Add in the cranberries, cloves, nutmeg, and vanilla, and cover the ingredients with water.
  2. Heat up the pot until it comes to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and add the rosemary sprigs.
  3. Leave on the stove to bring the delicious scent into your home all day long!
