My sister Jackie gave me this "recipe" years ago and I've loved it since. The "mix" can be made up and put in decorative pouches as go-to gifts with an instructions tag and recipients just need to add their own citrus. "CHRISTMAS SCENT" You'll need: 3 cinnamon sticks, 3 bay leaves, 1/4 c. whole cloves, 1 lemon (halved), 1 orange (halved) and 4 c. water. Combine all items in stainless steel saucepan and bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer as long as you like, adding additional water as needed to keep mixture from drying up. Can be stored lightly covered in fridge and reused the next day. Makes the house smell amazing!!!
