(This isn’t just for holidays either – it’s a great way to scent your kitchen anytime!)

  • lemons
  • oranges
  • cinnamon sticks
  • whole cloves
  • cranberries
  • fresh herbs
  • essential oils (just a drop or two is all you need)
  • 4 cups water

Combine ingredients with water in a saucepan and put on your stove. Set heat to low and let the ingredients simmer away as long as you’d like. (Keep an eye on the water so it doesn’t boil over or scorch.)
