With the holidays around the corner, a seasonal home scent is always enjoyed. You can create a cheap and simple home scent in minutes using your household items. Forget the expensive, artificial scents, and create your own, naturally!
What you’ll need:
- medium saucepan
- fresh fruit
- essential oils
Add 2 cups of cold water into a medium sized saucepan and bring to a boil.
Next add your ingredients and continue to boil for about 5 minutes.
Last; simmer your solution and leave to diffuse the aroma around your home.
Add more water to the pot when needed.
