Get your home smelling like the holidays

Found these great ideas on Pinterest to naturally scent your home with the smells of Christmas and Winter.

Get some orange slices, cranberries, bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon and lemon and place them in a large pot with 4-5 cups of water and boil. Once the water is boiling, set to a slow simmer for 15-20 mins and let the wonderful smell permeate the air.

Store the entire mix in a tightly closed mason jar and reuse as needed. Just keep adding more water until the orange and lemon start to rot and replace πŸ™‚

Other possible combinations include:

  1. lemon + rosemary + peppermint essential oil,
  2. orange + ginger + almond oil,
  3. pine cones + nutmeg + star anise + rosemary essential oil

    This is a great idea. We spend a small fortune on scented candles in this house. This could save me a fortune.
