I've been on a quest to make my home smell good ever since we got back from vacation a few weeks ago. Scented candles and spray air fresheners just don't work for me. I can't help thinking about all the toxins they emit. It's safe to say my relationship with those things is over.
I've been patiently waiting until it was officially fall to try out a homemade recipe guaranteed to make the air smell lovely. It's simmering away on my stove top right now.
3 cinnamon sticks (broken in half to fit in my little pot)
1 apple peel
A generous sprinkle of ground cloves
1 1/2 cups of water
Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for as long as you like.
