How to Make Your House Smell Like Christmas (without having to do any work!)

Family advent challenge day one!

Make the house smell like Christmas by putting the following in a small saucepan:

-3 cups of water
-a cinnamon stick
-orange peel
-a few whole cloves
-star anise
-a couple juniper berries (optional)

Put it on the stove and bring to a gentle boil. Turn down and allow to simmer, while the scent wafts through the house.

This is a really simple thing to do, but when the fireplace is crackling, and there are fresh brownies to nibble on with a cup of tea, homework time doesn't seem too bad after all.

Picture to batteries just ran out.
