You guys are probably going to hate me but I’ve never been a fan of the artificial smell of pumpkin…or the ever so popular pumpkin spice lattes, YIKES! Sorry guys :/ Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Fall but with this season comes pumpkin EVERYTHING and most of what I see in the grocery store has unnatural ingredients to create that flavor or smell. This year I’ve been trying to switch most of my products with natural ingredients and that includes anything from my skincare routine to household cleaning supplies. Today I wanted to share this super easy DIY to make your home smell like Fall the natural way.
I already had all these ingredient on hand but get crazy, throw what every you like in the pot. Here’s what I used:
- 1 peel of an orange
- 1 apple
- 5 cinnamon sticks
- 2 TBS vanilla extract
- 4 cups of water
Just combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat over low until simmering. I have kept this going for a few hours, adding additional water when needed. You can also throw everything in the crockpot and set it on low or high with the top off. Enjoy!
