Since I was little, every time I go to my Godmother’s house around the holidays, the feeling of Christmas envelopes my senses. What I love most of all is the SMELL. Over the years, she has taught me how to create that same smell. So at home, as part of my recent morning routine, I have been lighting up the stove to warm up the house with the most amazing Christmas smells. It is so simple and takes less than 2 minutes to make. Here is what you will need:
In a saucepan, fill part way with water. Add a cinnamon stick, cloves, anise stars, orange peel and/or nutmeg. Any of this stuff will work in any combination. Keep on very low heat to scent the house. Be sure it doesn’t go dry and cause a fire! That’s a totally different holiday smell!!!
