This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you arent a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.
Stove top Christmas scent --- One batch stays good for weeks, you just add water and heat it on low whenever you want to fill the house with Christmas goodness. Its not Christmas now but I'm using it anyway and it smells soo good!!
