3 DIY ways to make your house smell good

Here’s a quick rundown of everything I’ll be explaining to you!

#1

Pour vanilla coffee beans into a small mason jar or bowl. Place a tea light inside. The tea light will warm up the coffee beans leaving a wonderfully warm vanilla coffee bean fragrance.

#2 Simmering Potpourri

Love the smell of Christmas? So do we! Make this simmering potpourri and it will smell up the entire house with the BEST holiday fragrance. What’s even better is that it can be reused. Simply put it in a container and place it in the refrigerator for up to one week. Bring it to a simmer again when you want the house to smell pretty again. If too much evaporates, simply add more of the ingredients to the mixture. It’s so easy!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 cups of apple cider
  • 2 slided apples
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons of pumpkin spice extract
  • 1 tablespoons of cloves
  • 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
