MAKE YOUR HOME SMELL GOOD : FALL SIMMERS

by Becky 4 Comments

I love the way a warm scent can conjure up memories or just make a smelly room smell better.  Want to invoke that fall feeling in your home? Try a little simmer – it will get your home smelling fallish in a hurry.  Gather any combination of the following ingredients – you only NEED one or two things, but you can combine to your heart’s content.

INGREDIENT IDEAS:

HERE ARE 3 SCENT IDEAS TO GET YOU STARTED:

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.)

TIP: If you have a small crockpot you can combine the ingredients and let your simmer bubble away on low all day.
