Casa Quickie: Citrus Scent For Summer

If your home is smelling a little pungent thanks to good old-fashioned Summer sweat or maybe the fish and chips you fried up for dinner, you can make a natural air freshener to kick those odors to the curb. During your endless Summer, citrus is the key to keeping things smelling sweet. Peel off the rinds of lemons, oranges, grapefruits, or what have you and simmer them in a large pot. Toss in some cloves and star anise and let it be. Soon, the interior of your home will smell as fresh as your backyard lemon tree!

Yeah my Mom used to do this. She did rose petals and cloves and more potpurri type of scent, usually in the Winter. I want to try this. Very clever!

I tend to do this in the winter but what a great idea for summer with the citrus peels. I love putting fresh lemon and orange peels down my disposal too!

Oooh I want to try this, but I need to make my upstairs room smell fresher...can a candle really freshen up a room? And what kind? Does anyone have any tips?? I've tried several different brands over the years but none have been strong smelling enough/last long enough...
