Creating a Natural Holiday Home Scent

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
  • water
  • spices
  • 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.

Here are some Lark & the Lotus recipes to use during the holidays, and any day!
