You'll need:

  • Water
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 apple
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 ginger slice
  • 1 teaspon cloves


Combine all ingredients in medium-large pot and heat over low heat until simmering. Simmer for 1+ hours to fill your home with the warm spicy scent. Extra water may need to be added if left for several hours. If scent is too strong simply take pot off heat. Scent mix can be stored in fridge for 2-3 days.
