 A delightful potpourri with real apple slices and spices, to make your house smell wonderful!


1 small apple – made into dried apple slices (see below)
1 cup carnation petals, pink and red, dried
Cinnamon stick, broken into small pieces
2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 1/ 2 tablespoons whole cloves
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
3 drops vanilla fragrance oil (at your craft store)


Preheat your oven to 150 degrees. Slice the unpeeled apple in very thin slices and lay in a single layer on a baking sheet sprayed lightly with vegetable oil spray and bake for 30 minutes. You can sprinkle a little cinnamon on top to make these cinnamon dried apples. Let the dried apple cool for about ten minutes before adding to the other ingredients.
In a lidded glass jar (a Mason jar is perfect) combine all of the ingredients of the potpourri mixture, and gently combine with a wooden spoon. Cover tightly. This mixture will keep for months. To use, place about a tablespoon into 2 cups of boiling water. Turn down the heat and let the mixture simmer gently to release all of the wonderful apple pie scent!
