Simmering Potpourri is nothing more than dried botanicals you simmer on the stove. It makes the house smell great. It’s a very fast gift you can bag up with a little instruction note in no time. I used allspice, cloves, orange slices, cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Most of these you can find in the local grocery store. You can even make your own dried oranges by placing slices on a cookie sheet, coated with nonstick spray. Bake in a 225 degree oven for around 2-3 hours.
