Making Your Home Smell Like Fall

Making Your Home Smell Like Fall: The Charm of Home
Here is a great way to bring some natural aromatherapy to your home for fall.  This smelled so good, everyone came into the kitchen and had to ask what I was baking! 

peels of 1 orange
peels of 1 apple
few cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon whole cloves
few drops of vanilla extract
I also added the essential oil:
few drops of cinnamon bark
few drops of orange

The essential oils actually gave this brew it's most powerful punch.  I was really pleased with how wonderful they smelled!  I added this all to a large sauce pan 3/4's of the way full of water and let it simmer all afternoon at low on the stove top. This made the whole house warm and cozy for the evening.  Try it for fall and enjoy the lift it gives your home.
