    Recipes for a Great Smelling Home

    Whether you are planning to entertain or just want your home to smell nice for your own family, there are several ways to utilize some natural ingredients and bring a sense of warmth and pleasant aroma to your space.

    One of the absolute best ways you can eliminate food odors in the kitchen is to have a dish simmering on the stove with spices and fruit. About 20-30 minutes before guests arrive, put the ingredients in and set the heat to medium. Just before they arrive you should be able to turn the temperature down and let it simmer for a few hours. A simple recipe with minimal effort requires:

     

    1 apple

    1 orange

    2 cinnamon sticks

    1 tablespoon cloves

    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

     

    If Essential Oils and diffusers are more your speed, there are tons of great recipes for every season and occasion.  We’ve compiled a few winter/holiday themed ones just in time for Christmas.

     

    Combine equal amounts of these for a relaxing scent:

     

    Lavender

    Ylang Ylang

    Wild Orange

     

    Another variation would be:

     

    Bergamot

    Wild Orange

    Cypress

     

    Last but not least, for an especially festive recipe combine:

     

    Fir

    Orange

    Cinnamon

    Cardamon

    Clove

     

    Feel free to experiment and try your own concoctions for the holidays! There’s no right or wrong way to make your home smell great.
