There’s something in the air this time of year—and it’s more than just a hint of winter on the horizon. There’s a certain cheerfulness in the atmosphere that’s cozy and welcoming and makes you want to linger a little longer at a friend’s house or even spend the afternoon playing games by the fire—it’s the scent of the season.
We created this version using Meyer lemons, navel oranges, cinnamon sticks, and cloves, with apple cider as a base. Make your own blend based on your favorite aromas. Cranberries, vanilla extract, pinecones, rosemary, bay leaves, and apple slices all make great choices for winter and can be added to a water base. Simmer on the stove and allow the fragrance to waft throughout your home.
