Fall Aromas

Don’t you just love fall smells? All the pumpkin + apple baking with the rich spices that loom through the air, it’s bliss! When Eric and I were dating and first married one of our favorite things to do was go to Bed Bath and Beyond and find the perfect Yankee Candle for the season. A few years ago Eric even made a spread sheet of which candle would be best for each month of the year -isn’t he the best?!! But we soon discovered that at $35 a pop, our candle obsession just couldn’t fit in the budget every month. with a few exceptions, however

I decided to try some homemade scents this year to enjoy fall. We have loved the aromas floating through our house and I wanted to share the recipe with you.

Palm size of whole cloves
3-4 cinnamon sticks
1 peel of an orange
3 bay leaves
1 TB vanilla

Place ingredients in a crockpot and fill 3/4 of the way with water.

I’m excited to try to find the perfect Christmas recipe in a little over a month!!
