Loved having this going over the last couple of holiday weeks! Had a pot around Christmas, and made a new one up for New Year's. Beats a perfume-y candle, hands down.

Holiday Stove Top Potpourri
1/2 c. fresh cranberries
1 Tbsp. whole cloves
3 sticks of cinnamon
Dash of ground cloves (optional)
Dash of ground cinnamon (optional)
Slice the orange and lemon.
Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and fill the pan with water.
Place on stove on smallest burner, on the lowest setting.
Refill water as needed.
This mix should be good for an entire week. I only needed mine to last a few days each time, and I would just top it off with water in the morning, before turning on the stove. (At night, I just covered the pot with its lid.)
Also, this mix makes easy and cheap gifts for others! Just package up a batch and attach the instructions.
