The Scent of Fall…

I posted on my Instagram today one of my favorite tricks to making my house truly smell like fall without having to light any candles.  My daughter loves oranges so I peel them for her and I save the peels in a plastic bag in the refrigerator until I’m ready to use them.  I then throw the peels in a stock pot full of water and add cinnamon, allspice, cloves and a little nutmeg to the water.  Put the pot on the stove and turn it on simmer and let it sit.  It’s SUCH a great smell for the house!  It fills the entire house from just the kitchen.

I don’t have a “recipe” but feel free to try this yourself!  It’s so good!  If you want, throw an entire cinnamon stick in the water or add some cranberries.  I even throw in some of the actual oranges in as well.  Play around with it and add your favorite scents!
