Fall and Winter Home Scent Recipes

fall-and-winter-home-scent-recipesSeasonal aroma recipes will welcome any guest into your home with a peaceful feeling.

We’re all getting a little anxious about the fall and winter season, aren’t we? The lower temperatures and some of the leaves seem more yellow and orange than normal. Pumpkin spice lattes are back on the coffee shop’s menus and halloween candy takes up a chunk at the grocery store now. How can you not develop some yearning for the chilly season ahead?

Decorating for fall can be an eventful time in your household, but sometimes you want even the smells of fall to live in each of your rooms. Even if you are having family in town soon or having an upcoming dinner party, we’ve created a list on how to make fall scents right on your stovetop without buying expensive or toxic candles.

Directions For All Recipes

The beauty of these recipes is the amount of ingredients is up to you! If you want the scent of cinnamon to stand out more, include an extra cinnamon stick or two.

Start out with 2 cups of water and add your ingredients right away as soon as you place the pot on the stove (don’t wait until boiling because you want your aromas to come out right away with the vapor). As soon as boiling point is reached, turn temperature down to a low setting for as long as you desire.

This is best to do about an hour before guests arrive at your house so that these fall aromas have time to move into all the rooms.
