The Fall is in full swing and as we approach the season of snow and freezing temperatures we are craving comforting spices and warming smells.
Spending time on our Pinterest, we stumbled across simple recipes to make your home smell like fall. Intrigued, I clicked away and ended up on the Free People Blog staring at beautiful pictures of cinnamon and cloves day dreaming about reading a good book, cuddled with a blanket and a home that smells like fresh baked goods without the temptation.
We pulled some of our favorites quick and easy recipes to get your home smelling like a perfect fall day.
Whole cinnamon sticks, slightly crushed
Vanilla essential oil or extract
Nutmeg, ground or whole
Arrange all the ingredients in a beautiful jar and leave it out all day. We can’t guarantee it will look as beautiful as the picture but we can try!
