Your house will smell like Christmas and your guests will complement you all nght!

On of my favorite things to prepare for Christmas is “Christmas Scent”.  This is a must for when you are entertaining during the holidays.  My Mom passed this to me and it is the perfect “touch” to have as a hostess.  Be sure you check the water often or use a crockpot.  Every year I make this and I get so many complements from my guests.

  1. I think I’ll try to do this in a crock pot. It may take a bit longer to get the aroma going but I won’t have to eyeball the water as much & use less electricity.

    Thanks for all your wonderful tips; I appreciate you.

    Merry Christmas to you & yours.

      I agree! My crockpots are always in use but I got a smaller size that I am going to try this year.

  2. Thank you for posting! This is just what I needed! I’ve got it on the stove now. Thank you for your website and your postings. May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!!

  3. Something is missing from that recipe. I swear there are juniper berries in that photo.
