  1. I have been wanting to try one of these forever!! Since it's the holidays, I am going to go ahead and try the apple cinnamon spice this weekend..or the spicy orange!

    1. Yay! Take pictures and let me know how it goes.

  2. I've never tried these, well at least not DIY. I am the anti-Martha trying desperately to find a sliver of DIY and craft in me. I may give this a whirl. It would make a great gift.

    1. I'm not much of a DIYourselfer either.

  3. Ooh I have clementines in my house right now. Maybe I can substitute those peels for oranges and make a Clementine vanilla simmer pot.

    1. Yeah, try it out that way and let me know what you think.
