~Potpourri~

Don’t throw away those orange peels!

~Simmer orange peels, cloves, and cinnamon sticks in pot of water on the stove to freshen the air naturally. For safety’s sake, keep an eye on it and don’t leave it boiling unattended on the stove.

~Scatter orange peels in your vegetable or flower gardens to deter cats from using them as a litter box. Cats hate the smell of citrus and will stay away.

~Grate the peel with a zester and leave out to dry overnight.  Use it along with cinnamon sticks and dried flowers to make potpourri.

Fast, Simple and Easy Air Fresheners and Scents

The simplest way to scent any room in home would be to use a concentrated room spray.  Sprays create a fragrant ambiance in an instant and are very handy.

Scented candle bring  a pleasant aroma and cozy glow to any room.

Home fragrance oils are one of the fastest ways to scent your home.  Just add scented oil to an oil warmer, light, and enjoy.

Pluggable home fragrance diffusers or air fresheners, such as Bath&Body

Works Wallflowers, are an easy way to scent your rooms.  They are convenient and can remain in the electrical outlet 24/7 and last for up to 8 long weeks.

We use a similar oil fragrance burner we got at the Flea Market.  It works as a night light, as well.
