How To Make Your Home Smell Amazing for The Holidays

Need to give your home an inviting smell using what you already have? Do you have friends and family coming over this week?

Make your own simmering Holiday potpourri using natural ingredients and the best deal around on cinnamon sticks.

I love getting spices from BJs and the Saigon Ground Cinnamon and the cinnamon sticks are two of my favorites.  The price of spices at BJs makes stocking up your pantry affordable and easy when it comes to crockpot meals.




BJs sells cinnamon sticks for $5.99. The Organic Saigon Ground Cinnamon is $4.99. I also got 8lbs of oranges from BJ’s for $5.99. I purchased cranberries last year marked down from Tops and pulled out from the freezer. They smell just as good from the freezer as they would fresh.

We have this recipe going in our home and it smells amazing! One of the many things I adore about this time of year.

You can make this in a pot and simmer on the stove or add to your crockpot. The dipper size crockpot would be perfect to let it simmer all day!

Below is the recipe I use when I need that Holiday smell drifting throughout the home.


How to Get Your Home Smelling Good

Here’s How to Make This Holiday Potpourri:

  • 3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1/2 bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1 Orange cut into slices
  • Some Pine Sprigs from your backyard



Other Things You Can Add:

Vanilla, Cloves, Nutmeg, Rosemary, Lemon.



Add all ingredients into your pot. Fill with water just below the rim.  Let it simmer and enjoy the goodness.


If you need a deal on a BJ’s membership I have an exclusive offer. You will pay $40 for the year ( reg. price is $55) and receive a $25 BJ’s gift card. That makes it only $15 a year! It’s a deal. Get yours here. 


What ingredients do you add? And will you be getting your spices from a wholesale club now?
