Holiday potpourri.

I made stovetop potpourri this morning, 
and it filled our home with a most wonderful, warming aroma all day.

▲You'll need:
-A couple oranges
-A lemon
-a few cinnamon sticks
-1/4 cup whole cloves
-a few bay leaves

1. Cover ingredients with water.
2. Simmer and leave on stove all day. 
3. Add water as needed throughout the day.

Thanks to the always inspiring bleubird for reminding me of this simple, 
yet incredibly rewarding holiday pastime. 

Aromatherapy works. 
It smells like a Christmas miracle over here.
