Simmering Fragrance

Hi everyone. This is not a food recipe, but I came across it and tried it this weekend. It smells really great. Hope you don't mind that I'm passing it along. . .

Simmering Fragrance

1 orange, cut in half
1 lemon, cut in half
2 cinnamon sticks
2 bay leaves
20 cloves

Add 2 cups of water. Simmer. Keep adding water, if needed to simmer. Makes house smell great! (Not for eating or drinking). Just a great smell.

Re: Simmering Fragrance

I made something similar to this back around Xmas time. I think all I used was cinnamon (the ground kind - gotta watch out though because if it boils over, it's a mess to clean up - ask me how I know. LOL). Then I added whole cloves and some apple pie spice (hey I was just throwing stuff I had on hand in the pan). I brought it to a boil, then turned the heat down to simmer. It smelled like I was baking a pie. :)
