No doubt, everyone will ask you what it is that smells so lovely, so think ahead and say your farewells at the end of the evening by giving guests a favour full of their own festive potpourri to take home.

Directions
Fill a crock-pot or a pot on your stove with water. Combine all ingredients in the pot with the water. Turn on high heat for approximately 20 minutes and then reduce to a low simmer. Add water periodically to ensure the mixture does not dry out.

Fill clear cellophane bags with oranges, apples, cinnamon stick, ginger, and cloves along with a note from you detailing instructions on how to scent a home using these ingredients.  Label the bag with your guests’ names and hand out at the end of your Christmas party as the perfect festive party favour!
