    Christmas Aromas -- Fill Your Home!

    Do you love to fill your home will lovely aromas for the holidays from simmering pots, candles, and potpourri? Here is a thread where you can share your recipe!!!


    I'll start with an easy breezy simmering pot (I'm enjoying it right now!)

    2 cups water
    3 cinnamon sticks
    1 T whole cloves or 2 t ground cloves
    1 t nutmeg
    orange peels or apple peels

    Throw all the ingredients into a small sauce pan and stir. Bring to a boil, and then simmer away, adding water and more spices as needed. Enjoy!

    Not really, but we did get an actual christmas tree over a plastic one, partly for the smell.

    I have 2.5 million candles, other than that I love to bake because it keeps the house warm and makes it smell wonderful. The cinnamon trick is good too, my mom taught me that one. I find myself collecting leaves and sticks and pine and stuff from outside when it starts getting cold (TIL I'm a bird) and it makes everything smell woodsy.

    It's kind of a family tradition to take an orange and poke cloves in it. It's probably not as diffusive as heating up the herbs (sounds like it smells wonderful) in a pot, but it's nice and smells good when nearby.

    I also enjoy cooking during winter though--recently I was preparing something and I bought some anise seed to cook with (along with cardamom) and I accidentally removed the entire lid of seeds and poured half the bottle in. But I just cooked it anyway and it smelled pretty nice and tastes good as well.

    Here's a pretty version of the oranges with cloves--looks fun, though I've never done designs like this:

    This is all I aspire to do with my money after I leave college. xD

    I like essential oils- clove or white fir, or citrus. I have a diffuser at work & at home :)
