gee, you smell terrific

Recipe for a simmering potpourri

1 orange, cut into ¼ inch slices

1 lemon, cut also as above

6 cinnamon sticks

about 6 or so cloves

Bring to boil in 2 to 3 cups water and let simmer.
(I hear you can also leave the pot on the woodstove)

OHHH, it smells so good. I also put a dash of vanilla extract in it for a warm scent or peppermint extract for cooler scent.
