Organic Fall Room Spray

I'm just so excited to share some of these with you today because not only is your home going to smell amazing, but these are organic things that we're going to use to make the scents.

First thing to do is get yourself some small spray bottles.

Cinnamon, Pumpkin, Apple and Leaf Scent

  • 2 cups of water
  • Cinnamon Broom (or cinnamon sticks)
  • One small pumpkin (the tiny sugar pumpkins)
  • Favorite Apple
  • Your favorite fallen leaves outside (that smell wonderful)
  • 1/2 cup vodka 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

1. In a medium sauce pan, combine the water with some pieces of pumpkin rind (only the rind) that are cut into smaller pieces. Add in some chunks of apple, cut up some of the cinnamon broom and add that in. I like the cinnamon broom better than the sticks, it is a little stronger. But cinnamon sticks work good too!
If you have leaves outside that are starting to fall, add in some of those cut up.
2. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 3 or so hours. Turn off the heat, and let sit overnight to room temperature. The longer it gets, the strong it is!

3. Strain this mixture to use in spray bottles.

Apple, Orange and Cinnamon Scent

Cut up your oranges and apples and add to a small pot. You can use the entire orange or just the rind, it won’t matter.

Add about a half tablespoon of the vanilla and a couple of cinnamon sticks.

Add water to cover the mixture and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and just barely simmer it. It only took about 10 minutes of simmering for our entire home to smell amazing.

Now fill up some spray bottles and enjoy!

Cinnamon Spice Scent

  1. Add all ingredients to crockpot, stir and cover with lid.
  2. Cook on HIGH for 1 hour, then remove lid and let simmer on HIGH for hours of yummy air freshening!

Stovetop Potpourri Scent

  • 1 orange or orange peels
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan that can hold at least 2 quarts. 
  2. Fill the saucepan with water, covering the ingredients by about 2″. Don’t worry if anything floats to the top; the ingredients will settle as they simmer.
  3. Stir everything together and set the stovetop burner on low, uncovered. Add water as needed to ensure the ingredients don’t burn. Set a timer if you need a reminder that the stove is on!
