Autumn Crock-Pot Air Freshener

Autumn Crock Pot Air Freshener

What scents remind you of Fall and Autumn?

To me, it’s warm scents of cinnamon, apple butter and baking bread. It’s the smell of the autumn air with crunching leaves beneath my feet. It’s the smell of the harvest.

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? I remember that this was the season my mom used to start her baking and the kitchen would be filled with all these wonderful scents and more.


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!

This scented air freshener will really make your home smell awesome, and the best part is, it is 100% natural. Unlike candles, scented wax or spray air fresheners, this autumn scented air freshener is safe for pets, kids and anyone with sensitivities to perfumes.
