The Smell of Christmas

I just love to have the house smell like Christmas... I whipped up some simmering potpourri yesterday for my house.  In the middle of the night last night it dawned on me that I could make these up as little Christmas gifts... 

Here is what is in each jar:
3 Slices of Orange
3 Slices of lime
3 Cinnamon Sticks
3 Bay Leaves
12 whole cloves
1 teaspoon of vanilla
enough water to fill the jar

If you didn't notice I am a multiples of 3's kinda girl... It's not rocket science so add whatever you would like. I attached a card with instructions to simmer

I even created you a label to use (minus my name). It is formatted to print on the perforated business cards or card stock for you to cut out, either one. I created it on the Avery website... Here is you aPDF file to download

Ta Dah...

How far ahead can you make these? Do you think it would spoil or mold?

Cathy, I normally only make mine a few days ahead of giving them. once they start them simmering and you add water occasionally they will not spoil
