Holiday Stove-Top Organic Potpourri

Home is where the heart is and there is nothing better then a lovely smelling home. I try to avoid all the toxic phthalates that come in the form of artificial air fresheners and stick to making my own organic scents. I love the smell of Christmas and all the elements that characterize it!! Cinnamon, nutmeg, cranberries...yum!!! The great thing about Holiday stove-top organic potpourri is that it only takes a few minutes to assemble and its much cheaper then purchasing holiday candles. However, my house is always filled with candles too!! Here are  few of my favorite concoctions.
