One of the things I love about the holidays is all the delicious smells: pine trees, baked apples, cinnamon, oranges and clementines....ahh smells like Christmas!
I absolutely love this time of year and love celebrating all month long. If you are like me and don't have the time to make fresh gingerbread cookies daily to make your house smell all cinnamon and gingery...this is the perfect trick for you!
Your friends and family will walk in to a home full of warmth that smells like the holidays and there is absolutely nothing to it!
Here's what you need to make your home smell perfectly like this magical time of year:
1 orange, sliced
1/2 a lemon, sliced
a handful of fresh cranberries
2-3 sticks of cinnamon
4 bay leaves
Place all the ingredients in a pot and fill it two thirds of the way with water. Simply leave the pot on the stove on medium heat and wait for the aroma to do it's thing. Add more water as it evaporates and enjoy the nostalgia as Christmas smells fill your home!
Happy Holidays :)
