You Will Need

8 TB. orange peel

2 TB. tangerine peel

2 TB. whole cloves

2 TB. cinnamon chips

1 tsp. cardamom, decorticate

2 tsp. whole cardamom

1 TB. whole allspice


Pot: heat-resistant

Glass spice jar: 6 oz.


To Make

Blend the citrus peel and spices together in a bowl. Boil a pot of water on the stove. Add1-2 tablespoons of potpourri to boiling water. Reduce heat to a simmer the spices as long as desired. The water will evaporate, so be sure to add more water as needed. You may reuse the same spices a few times during the week before discarding.

To Gift

Store potpourri in a glass spice jar and add a label.

My idea is, tie some raffia around the top with instructions.
