How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 175F/100C. Thinly slice 5 whole lemons and oranges, peel and all.
  • Then using a sharp vegetable peeler or knife, peel skin off remaining lemons and oranges.
  • Spread slices and peels on ovenproof paper lined pans or cookie sheets. Place in oven and dry slices and peel for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Slices and peels should be leathery. Air dry for 24 hours.
  • Mix with remaining ingredients and pack into bags and tie to seal. To expose scent into an area, simply place a portion of potpourri into open dish and add a small amount of hot water to entice fragrance.
  • Makes approx. 8-10 gift bags of potpourri.

    This is really nice. Great for gifts, but I don't think I'll wait till Christmas! Tired of buying tins of air fragrance which smell horrible anyway.

    Can you add essential oils to this to make the scent last longer? Like cinnamon, orange or clove oils.
