Welcome Autumn with the Heavenly Scent on your Stovetop!

What scents remind you of fall?

To me, it’s warm scents of cinnamon, apple butter and baking bread.

These scents always makes me feel like Autumn is officially here!Isn’t it amazing what just a scent of something can bring up in our memories?


If you are like me, you like your home to smell warm and inviting. One easy way to do this is by using natural things to bring the scents of the season right in and make your family and anyone who happens to drop by feel cozy and content.

I save just about anything that I can in this small living space and one thing I save is citrus peels. If you stick them in the freezer, you can easily pull some out for flavoring baked goods, cleaning or in this case, making an air freshener!


For this autumn splendor, you will need:

  • Orange peels, about 2-3 oranges worth
  • 1-2 apples
  • cinnamon, either ground or stick
  • water
  • cloves

Simply place all the ingredients in a pot (or crockpot) and simmer. When you are done, you can even eat the apples. To save for another day, put in either the freezer or in a container in the fridge. Will stay fresh for 2-3 days in the fridge.
