I really love this time of year. Uggs have resurfaced, hot chocolate becomes my go to drink and the beautiful crisp mornings remind you Christmas is just around the corner. Your home instantly becomes a cosy place and you seem to spend a lot more time inside.

I discovered stove scents in the summer and fell in love with how easily they created a long lasting, house filling scent. By playing around with different  recipes I found one which makes my home smell divine.

All you need to re create my Christmas home scent are the following 3 simple ingredients:

1 whole orange
2 cinnamon sticks
Whole clove
Slice your orange and place it into a pan, pre filled with about 2 inches of water. 

I then add two cinnamon sticks to the pan.

I also add a good helping of cloves to the mix.

Place the mixture over a high heat and bring to the boil. 
Once boiled reduce heat and simmer. You can leave for as long as you desire. Remember to keep an eye on the water to level and keep topping up as required. 

This recipe will last about 3 days, and will make your home smell sensational. 

These make great DIY gifts, especially for Christmas. Pop the ingredients into a jar add some twine or ribbon and let your recipient enjoy.
