I think what I love most about fall is the smell. The problem is, I can't afford to buy Yankee candles, and I use up about one Walmart candle per week. It gets expensive. Fall smell=unaffordable.
I promise you, when my Thanksgiving guests walked into the house, they were ooh-ing and aahh-ing about the scent. It was amazing. It was like a mixture of a Cracker Barrel, a Yankee candle store, an apple orchard, and, well, heaven.
And, it was cheap.
- 1 apple
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Cut the apple into slices
- Fill a small pot with water and add all ingredients, including apple slices
- Simmer on medium/low heat, adding more water as it evaporates.
Mine lasted the whole day, and so can yours!
