Aroma Scents at Home for Fall and the Holidays

There’s nothing — NOTHING — like the smell of baked apples, spiced cider and pumpkin bread coming from your oven. Well, no need to start baking and messing up the kitchen. You can have those smells anytime you like at little cost. Most of the ingredients are in your kitchen. 

Simply cut an apple (any variety) into quarters. Put the apple pieces in a small pan. Fill the pan with water, then add some cinnamon sticks and whole cloves. Sprinkle in a little ground cinnamon if you want. Now here’s the secret: Add a teaspoon or more of vanilla extract. Simmer on the stove top, being careful not to let the water boil away.

Your home will smell delicious! Warning: your family will probably come in and say “What are you baking?” because it will certainly smell as if you’ve got apple pie or cinnamon rolls in the oven. Be careful not to let the pot go dry. Oh, and use an old pot you don’t need.

Enjoy!
