Fireplace sachets
Stoke the Fire

Friends can toss a spice-and-herb sachet in the fireplace to release a sweet fragrance.

To Make: Cut two coffee filters into identical squares and sew them together with red string -- but leave one side open, like a pillowcase. Stuff the pouch with a handful of spice mixture -- made up of dried orange and apple peels, cloves, pine needles, star anise, cinnamon sticks, sprigs of rosemary and lavender. Then sew the open flap closed.
