Fall Fragrance

Saturday was such a lousy day. It was one of those rainy, dark, gloomy days, where all you want to do is lay in bed with a broken-in pair of sweats and huge blanket and a good movie. As much as I would have loved to been out doors enjoying fall and all it has to offer, it just wasn't happening. Errands, chores and food prep was on the agenda which sounds like -10% fun in my weekend book. To make things seem all that not bad I decided to spice up the house while the day finally calmed down and I was finishing up with everything. I found the easiest recipe possible for an amazing fall fragrance for the house. If you know anything about us we are obsessed with candles! Obsessed!! But this recipe might just save me a buck or two during the fall and alternate in a few times a week instead of the constant candle burning.
I couldn't find the exact recipe I used to link, but it is super easy to remember what goes into it!
Fall Fragrance
1 Apple cored and cut
1 Orange peel
2 Cinnamon sticks
1 Tbs whole cloves
1 Tbs almond extract
1 Tbs vanilla
1.5 Cups of water
Put everything into a pot on the stove and simmer! Continue to add water as long as you desire the scent and to avoid the pot from burning.



  1. What a neat way to spice up the house! I have a really amazing spiced apple cider recipe that makes the house smell delicious.

  2. I love this idea! I'm hosting a brunch this weekend and think I'll try it out to make the apartment smell nice and fall-ish for all the guests :)
