diy: easy & green aromatherapy

everyone wants a home that smells beautiful, 
but many of the products made to do this aren't so great for us.  
glade & fabreeze can send people like me into allergic coughing fits.  & some are even be toxic to pet birds.  there are natural alternatives that are cheap, easy, & won't hurt anyone. 
plus, they smell much nicer.  
sorry, glade lady!

all you need is a large pot of water on the stove.  bring ingredients to a boil for about 30 min, reduce to simmer, & add water when needed.  this will also work like a humidifier.

to make your home ...

smell like a spa.
a few drops of pine essential oil
a few drops of peppermint essential oil

a few drops of lavender essential oil

star anise

orange peel

if you want something for yourself, i suggest etsy's OpulentAlchemy.
