One of my favorite garden fragrances of the Holiday season

Bringing nature indoors is so important when the temperature is freezing outside! Natural fragrances for your home are easy and inexpensive to create yourself. This Christmas we cut a concolor fir tree for our Christmas tree. The scent, amazingly, is of oranges and pine. I like to take the branches, especially the needles, and cut them up, add water to a small sauce pan, and simmer on the stove. It fills the whole house with such a festive fresh garden fragrance! Another variation is to take orange rind and pine from your yard and simmer in a bit of water as well. So while you wrap presents, bake, and get ready for your holiday - enjoy this relaxing garden fragrance from my home to yours. Happy Holidays!
