Pursuit eighty eight: Smells of Holiday Cheer

Every holiday season, there is one tradition that I look forward to in my household. For as long as I can remember, every year when the weather starts to get a little cooler outside, and the days become shorter, my mom always starts putting out her infamous potpourri. This light scent of cinnamon, cloves, and orange enveloping our household has now come to represent the holiday season for me. 

                                                                      -The peelings of 1 orange
                                                                      -2 to 3 cinnamon sticks
                                                                      -A dash of whole cloves 
                                                                      -1.5 to 2 cups of water
                                                                      -Small cooking pot

This smell of holiday cheer has the perfect balance of aroma - a light dash of senseful delight to peak ones fancy. Now you might be asking yourself, "How does one make this holiday cheer?". It is very simple you see. Take one of your small cooking pots and add about roughly 1.5 to 2 cups of water into the pot. Then, peel an orange and place the peelings into the pot. After this take two to three cinnamon sticks and a handful of whole cloves and place them into the pot. Turn the heat on low and let the magical smell of holiday cheer begin to envelope your olfactory senses.

Happy holidays!
