Holiday Potpourri

Holiday Potpourri

I don’t think there’s anyone I know that doesn’t love candles. I love the warmth and coziness that candles bring into any home but have a hard time with overpowering or perfume-based scents. Along with air-fresheners, perfume-based candles typically give me a huge headache, so I have avoided them for years. This all-natural Holiday Potpourri will have your home smelling like heaven. I have been making this Potpourri during the Holidays for years. My house has never smelled more beautiful than it does when I combine cranberries, star anise, cinnamon, lemons, and rosemary, to a simmering pot of water. These beautiful ingredients permeate all throughout the house, and make every guest feel amazing. I love Christmas so the Holiday season begins on November first for us every single year. The moment Halloween is over, I simmer a beautiful pot of Potpourri immediately and get into the spirit. There is no exact recipe for this so please measure everything with your heart.
