If you want your home to smell yummy for the holidays without having to bake, or without spraying some chemical concoction, this is your best bet!
I found this at http://www.inseason.com/community/receipes/simmering.html. Thanks go to Mickey Oates.
2 Tbls. pickling spices
2 Tbls. whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. peppermint oil (buy in drugstore or cake/candy supply store)
1 qt. water
Combine all ingredients and simmer on stove.
Replace water as it evaporates.
NOT TO DRINK!
Just to make your home smell extra special for the holidays!
Makes a nice gift if presented (without water) in a decorative jar.
