Spicing Up Christmas

I love drying out remnant's of my teas in the kitchen's mini bay window. Cuttings and petals from the outdoors are often added to dry out. It looks like an open apothecary and smells lovely when I wash the dishes. Having a Christmas tree and access to pine put my ingredients to a holiday use. I combined an equal ratio of all dried goods in mason jars. there is no secret quantity or formula to potpourri, use what you have and scents that please you. Just boil low on the stove in a pot of water and enjoy the smell of a Christmas home.


  1. Ooooo, I can smell your potpourri from here, Holly. And your Christmas tree in the post below is sooooo pretty. Wishing you the Merriest Christmas, and may your heart be filled with love and joy in the new year. So thankful for your friendship through the years.

    love, ~Sheri

  2. Delicious, Holly! I shall use some of my grapefruit rinds, dry flowers and cinnamon sticks and brew some yummy-scented goodness. ;-)

    Happy Winter Solstice to you and yours! ♥
