Made potpourri

Christmas potpourri

A super easy and cheap way to get into the holiday spirit!

Go to your grocery or bulk food store and get the following:

Whole all spice, whole cinnamon sticks, bayleaves, and whole cloves.

Try a cup of each all spice and cloves, and about 10 cinnamon sticks and 10 bay leaves.

Break the cinnamon sticks in half or thirds, try scoring a line where you want to break it then break with your hands, if not try using a saw or a hammer to break it up into smaller pieces.

Toss together and Store in a tupperware until ready to use, or put in a decorative bowl for immediate aromatherapy.

Try out different spices if you can find them, I can’t find the original website that I got the idea from but this one is close.

Whole nutmeg, star anise or whole cardamom pods would be good additions.
