Mmmmm. I love for my house to smell good. In the autumn, I want it to smell like cinnamon and cloves (click here to read how I do that). But now that we're in the last stretches of winter and heading quickly toward spring, I want my house to smell a little lighter, a little fresher, but still warm and welcoming.
I discovered a way to create just the aroma I was wanting, and it couldn't be more simple. In fact, it requires just two ingredients.
Here's what to do:
Peel an orange. Put the orange peel into a small pot. Fill the pot with water, then squirt in some vanilla extract. Bring to a boil, then simmer. Be careful not to let the pot boil dry.
Vanilla extract is the secret weapon here. Yes, it's expensive, but you'll be so glad you used a teaspoon or two for this!
Do you have a great method for making your house smell good? Please share!
