i saw this post the other day on the blog a beautiful mess about using natural ingredients simmering on the stove to fill your home with scent. i filed it away in the back of my brain to attempt one day. during our weekly shopping trip today, i made sure to pick up some of the recommended items so that i could give this a try. as i write this, i have oranges, orange peel, cinnamon sticks, and cranberries on the stove and the house smells simply *amazing*.
not only am i thankful for the wonderful scent filling the house but i'm also feeling grateful to elsie and emma for the inspiration (there blog is over-flowing with great ideas). i know i'm already dreaming up different combinations that i can use throughout the cooler, darker months to help keep our home feeling cozy, welcoming and warm.
would you give this idea a try? what would your ideal scent combination be?
