My friend Stephanie had a great idea for the upcoming Holy Day, to create little sachets for her community. She wanted to fill their homes with a beautiful fragrance and asked if I'd help. Of course- what a great idea!
She chose a beautiful quote to accompany this gift...
"O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!
Verily I say unto thee the truth, that I am with you in spirit and in heart, that I rejoice by your joy and am happy by your happiness... "
- ‘Abdul Baha
The elements of this are very simple and fully customizable. For my community I'm using:
- A small orange or clementine
- Fresh cranberries
- Cinnamon sticks
- Star anise
- Bay leaves
- Bag, twine and tags (you can print them here in color or black and white!)
To create the bag, you simply stud the orange with cloves, and put all of the ingredients in the bag. Tie with string, attach your tags, and drop off at the doorsteps of those you love.
The stovetop simmer instructions are on the tag!
"Slice orange and cover ingredients with water in a small pot or slow cooker. Simmer on low heat to infuse your home with the scents of the season. Refill water as needed. Enjoy!"
Have a wonderful and blessed Holy Day.
