These are the ingredients you will need.
- Peels from a few apples
- Cinnamon (sticks work much better)
- Cloves (whole or ground)
- Maple or vanilla extract
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan.
Fill a medium saucepan with the ingredients, cover with water, and simmer over a low flame for as long as desired. The mixture can be stored in the fridge and reused for two days. The same method can be used with a number of other ingredients to create custom scents.
Orange is another great ingredient to create natural scents for the home.
Just place some orange peels, cinnamon sticks, and cloves in a saucepan with some water and simmer over a low flame.
Ginger and vanilla make the perfect combination.
Place some vanilla (extract or pod) and ginger (fresh or ground) in a saucepan with water and simmer.
No matter what ingredients you use, once you know how to do it, it's really up to your imagination and personal preferences. Just remember to turn the stove off before you leave the house and to keep the fire low so the water doesn't evaporate.
