Make holiday potpourri for a delicious holiday fragrance that fills the house.

Bring your home to life with holiday fragrance in just a few minutes.

Fill a large, heavy pot halfway with water, and place it on the stove. Add your preferred ingredients ? orange slices, fresh cranberries, cinnamon sticks, pine twigs, anise, cloves, etc. ? filling the pot until the water level is several inches below the brim. Bring it to a slow boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer up to three hours. Turn off and let it cool. Replenish the water as it evaporates, and continue simmering daily for a few hours until it no longer gives off any fragrance.
