There is nothing like the holidays. The sights, sounds, tastes and smells of the season always makes me feel so happy and cozy. Today, we have a simple, Green Monday approved technique for adding a bit of holiday scent and magic to your home. Best of all, this happy little holiday DIY only requires few household basics that you most likely already have in the kitchen.
DIY: Holiday Scented Home
1) Take an old sauce pot and fill with water. (Do not use a new pan, it may stain.)
2) Add the following:
• 4 cinnamon sticks
• A handful of whole cloves
• Rind of one lemon
• Rind of one orange
• 2 bay leaves
• 1 teaspoon of whole allspice – optional
3) Place the pan on low heat and let it simmer.
Your house will smell heavenly in no time. Make sure to keep an eye on the pot and the water level and add more as needed. If you have a gas stove, try this with a small simmer pot or even crock pot.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
