There is something about the smells of the Christmas season that offer up warm fuzzies for anyone who walks through your door. Whether it be something you're baking, or roasting or boiling up on the stove, the aromas spell holiday magic, warmth and love!
And even tho it almost doesn't matter what it is, if it has the warmth of cinnamon wafting through the air, you have a winner in everyone's book. I found this fantastic homemade potpourri mix that is a classic Merry Stockings recipe. Why is it classic Merry Stockings you ask? Well, it's simple to make, it's not that expensive, and it really is magic.
What's even better is that packaging this mix up in a holiday bag makes the perfect gift! You'll be buying the ingredients already, so there will likely be enough for your own homespun magic and for gifts. That is a complete win-win, yes? Also, you don't have to make this mix more than once. You just keep adding water to the pan, and this wonderful concoction will last for weeks!
You can find full instructions here. This will be a great use for those cranberries I bought a couple months ago that I stashed in the freezer! I can already smell it!
