For each gift bag, you'll need:
1 whole apple
1 whole lemon
1 whole orange
3 whole cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
6 whole allspice berries
Simply add all of the above to a cellophane bag and tie it up with some pretty ribbon. Attach instructions for use and you are done--its that simple!
Instructions to include with your potpourri:
1. Cut fruit into 1/2-inch thick slices.
2. Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and cover with water.
3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer uncovered, adding water throughout the day as needed.
4. Re-heat your potpourri for several days, adding water as needed, until it loses its scent.
