7 Ways to a Scentsational Home

Make your home the original sweet home with these delicious ideas:

1. Simmer a pot of water to create a fragrance combo. Try lemon, rosemary and vanilla; oranges, cinnamon and cloves; orange, ginger and allspice; or sweet lime, mint and cloves.

2. Make a divine essence of rose for a special party night. Toss together a variety of rose petals, eucalyptus oil and rose oil in a bowl.

3. Make a batch of dry potpourri with dried spices, herbs and flowers, cinnamon sticks and coffee beans.

4. A chai potpourri makes a delightful change. Mix together tea bags, dried flowers and spices like black pepper, cloves, allspice, fennel, ginger and mint.

5. Use seasonal herbs to make an herbal wreath and keep your entry way smelling fresh.

6. Wrap glasses or votives with sticks of cinnamon for a pretty display. Pop in a candle to enjoy the wafting aroma of cinnamon. Or else, wrap the sticks around a stubby pillar candle.

7. Quick DIY air freshener recipe: Mix a cup of water with a cup of household vinegar, add a tablespoon of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of cloves. Simmer for two minutes and allow to cool. Strain and pour into bottle and spray as needed.
