Christmas Stovetop Potpourri

Are you ready for the simplest way to make your entire home smell like Christmas? You may still have these items on hand from Thanksgiving! All you need is four simple ingredients to make this amazing-smelling mixture. You can put this on the stovetop, or throw all of the ingredients into your crockpot on low to keep the aromas going. When the water runs low, simply add more to keep the smell going. 

I love using this easy mixture before I entertain, to make the house smell like it's right out of a Christmas catalogue! As soon as I put this mixture on the stove, my husband asked what I was cooking because it smelled "amazing all over the house." While the mixture doesn't last as long as a candle (the mixture keeps 1-3 days), it certainly smells better and stronger than any Christmas candle I've found....not to mention it is beautiful to look at! 

I hope this seasonal medley makes your home a hit at your next rendezvous!
