A Holiday Fragrance your Families’ Sure to Love

  Chris and Ryan Belgrave  |    16 December 2014  |    House Cleaning Tips,  |    Virginia Beach

 A therapeutic holiday cocktail the whole family is sure to love. The holidays are a time to enjoy laughter with family and friends, shearing the good times in a jovial environment. Imagine your home filled with the sweet smells of the holiday season. When guess step into your clean home and smell the sweet aroma filled with a hint of cinnamon, a sprinkle of ginger, the zest of an orange and the warmth of cranberries they’ll feel like they've step back in time to when they were a kid.

This is one of my favorite home fresheners for the holidays: my family looks forward to it every year.

  1. 1/2 cup cranberries                                                                                  
  2. 3-5 cinnamon sticks
  3. 1-2) whole Florida oranges (depending on size) cutup including the peel
  4. 1 Ginger root (about thumb size)

Place all ingredients into a deep saucepan. Fill with water about ¾ the way up. Place on the small back eye of the stove. Then turn the stove all the way up for about 5 minutes. Then turn it down to the lowest setting. Refill water as needed. As the water dissipates just add more water, don’t let it completely evaporate. These scented aromas and fragrances will help you feel better by soothing your body’s tension and a restless soul.
