How to Use Christmas Fragrances in Your Decorations


Potpourri

Scenting your home with fresh or dried herbs and spices helps you create a warm, inviting atmosphere for all your holiday parties. Try simmering ingredients on the stove, or, for a more decorative option, look for dried versions you can display in glass dishes or vintage tins. You can also use the ingredients themselves in centerpiece arrangements: The bright colors and varied shapes of small oranges, limes, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, and cloves will look as good as they smell.
