    Stove top Christmas scent! One batch stays good for weeks, you just add water and heat it on low whenever you want it. Making my home smell wonderful is so important to me this time of year. The smells of the evergreen, cinnamon, orange and spice all mean the Holidays are here. A stove top potpourri mix is an easy inexpensive way to make your home smell wonderful. Packaging the mix in a Holiday bag makes a wonderful gift for friends, neighbors, teachers and co-workers. Here’s how I make my concoction: Holiday Stove Top Potpourri Mix one whole orange or just the orange peel 1/2 cup cranberries 1 Tbsp. whole cloves 3 sticks of cinnamon or a small handful of small pieces of cinnamon a bit of grated nutmeg if desired Quarter the orange. Put all the ingredients into a saucepan. Fill pan with water. Place on the stove on the smallest burner, on the lowest setting. Refill water as needed. It’s just that easy. I love to use an orange that is starting to get old… or just use the peel of an orange. Another important tip is don’t allow the water to completely evaporate. I always refill the water when I turn it on. One mix stays good for weeks. With heating the mix does turn brown, but continues to smell wonderful, so I usually make only batch in a season.

I just happened into our local grocery store one hurried morning before work and they had put out boxes like these in their clearance cart. 4 boxes for 75 cents....now I know what I'm going to do with them next year....yipppeee...I also bought a tiny crock pot a few years ago and I think it will work great as a heat up/holder.
