Scents of the Holiday!

I love having a candle lit when I have guests over, but I have read and heard that eventually it can make your ceiling look black.  Yuck!  (I think it takes quite a while for this to happen, but regardless, I do not want my newly painted home looking dusky.)

So, I saw a bunch of potpourri recipes on pintrest and decided to try mix one up on my own.  

Ingredients that I used
orange, quartered
 whole cloves
cinnamon sticks

Combine all ingredients and add water.  
Let simmer on low heat.

And for some more great scents to warm up your home, check out the recipe swap over at Flip Flops and Pearls!  



  1. I bet this smells amazing! Ok, have you heard of Scentsy? They have candle warmers and all sorts of scented waxes. I used them in my classroom with the kids every day. They can be plugged in for hours and hours and I never worry about smoke or fire! Have a great weekend, love!

  2. I love this recipe. I always try to cook cranberry and oranges on my stove during the holidays. I will definitely be giving this one a try! xo

  3. I love some mulling spices from Williams Sonoma mixed with apple cider. So easy and smells amazing. I want to try your recipe though and probably will this year. Pinning it!

  4. I am ready to pull out some mulling spices. Loving the addition of citrus! Definitely trying this out this weekend. Stopping by from FF&P's Let's Eat!

  5. Mmmmm, I bet that smells EVEN BETTER than a candle!!

  6. The candle black thing has happened to us. I make sure to cut the wick back.
