We all want our house to have a fragrant and pleasant atmosphere. When we come back to this after a hard day to cheer us up when we get in. Unfortunately, it is not always possible.

You’ll need:

  • 1 apple sliced
  • 1 orange Sliced

In a saucepan put all the ingredients and fill with water that will cover them. When the water starts to boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for 20-30 minutes. When the water becomes scarce, we add more. Finally strain and place the liquid in a plastic bottle with pump. We spray with this all around.

2. Lemon & Rosemary
