It snowed most of today. It’s calm and quiet. The snow has gently covered the farm fields and changed shrubs and trees into pristine, shimmering art. It’s time to start thinking about decking the halls. Or listening to Richard Burton reading Dylan Thomas ‘s A Child’s Christmas in Wales. A gentle beginning of this frequently hectic season. No shopping in the malls. No parties. Simply enjoying the snow and the day.
This Christmas Essence will give your home a lovely spicy perfume.
Chop the peel of an orange and a lemon. Break up a good-sized stick of cinnamon, two bay leaves and add everything in a small pot. Add 2-3 cups of water and simmer. (watch don’t let it boil dry) Your house will smell like Christmas.
