How to Make Your Home Smell Like Fall

by Sherry Williams

This is super easy and quick. Even my boyfriend loves to come home to this smell!


  • 1 Small saucepan
  • 1 Orange - peels or whole orange
  • 1 Cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons Sugar (white or brown)
  • 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    In a small saucepan add water till it is 3/4ths full. Add a halved orange. Add cinnamon, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and sugar. Bring to a boil then simmer on low throughout the day for a wonderful smell

    Step 2

    Tips: You can add other fragrant spices such as cloves as well. Use what you have on hand. Opt for cheap imitation vanilla that won't be missed. I did not eat my orange because it was pretty old but

    Step 3

    Eating the inside and using the peels works just as well. Every few hours check the water level and add more when it's low. Mine has lasted a day and a half before I had to add more cinnamon.
