Orange Air Freshner

Leave a comment

Maybe it’s because I’m from Florida, but oranges make me happy. They are bright, colorful, tasty, and smell wonderful. They are great to eat, bake with (try this orange pound cake sometime), and can be used to make natural air fresheners for your home.

The process is quick and long lasting. Simply put your choice of fruit and spices in a pot on the stove, cover with water and simmer for up to two days.


We first started doing this last year with lemons, rosemary, and vanilla extract, but for fall and winter love a mix of orange slices, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice or cloves.
