4 Days Till Christmas - Give Your House That "CHRISTMAS" Scent...Straight Out Of Your Spice Rack!

My mom had a trick she used around the holidays (and when we had our house on the market to sell).  It was a quick, simple, easy and delicious mix of spices...that made the house smell homey and "OH SO Holidayish"!
So what's in the pot?

Water...for starters!
Add a couple tablespoons of cinnamon or a couple cinnamon sticks!
A handful of cloves!
A couple tablespoons of nutmeg!
You can also add some orange and lemon peel if you want a scent too!

The basic idea is to bring it to a boil and then let it simmer on the stove top....

TRUST ME...your house will smell amazing and it will put you in the Christmas Spirit!
