There is nothing like walking in the front door, and being greeted by the warm smell of spices simmering on the stove. This holiday season, wow your guests with the delicious aroma coming from the kitchen!
These packages of potpourri spice simmer blends make a wonderful hostess gift for friends and family. These spice blends are our favorite kitchen fragrances, and have zero added chemicals or artificial scents.
