Directions

You don't need any precise measurements for this recipe. It's really just about layering each of the ingredients until you get to the top. I always start with 3-4 orange slices, then add a few pieces of ginger root, then the cinnamon sticks, cloves and allspice. I also add either a hangtag to the back, or a sticker to the bottom with directions for simmering. They can be added to a simmering potpourri pot, or to an old pot on the stovetop. Notice I don't add any fragrance oil to this recipe; it's all natural so it can't hurt the pan used for simmering. The ingredients just need to be covered with water and simmer on low--remembering to always check the water level! The smell is fabulous. Perfect for fall. Note: I don't dry my own orange slices. I buy all my ingredients from suppliers listed on my Primitive Crafting Supplies page. http://www.tatteredsisters.com/p/primitive-crafting-supplies.html
