Create an aromatic atmosphere with winter pot pourri scented with spicy essential oils

Put whole cloves, pieces of cassia or cinnamon bark, nutmegs, cinnamon sticks, dried rosehips, cardamom pods and star anise in a polythene bag.

Add several drops of Christmas spice oil, or a combination of essential oils such as orange, cinnamon, clove and frankincense.

Tie the bag and shake up to mix. Leave for a week or so, then put in cellophane bags to give as presents, adding dried red chillies and dried orange slices for colour.

Drops of oil can be added whenever the smell begins to fade; you can also freshen up existing potpourri in the same way.

Potpourri ingredients are available from supermarkets, or Indian spice stockists.
