The fall season is finally here and we all want to feel cozy and warm inside our homes. Here is an Easy DIY Trick To Make Your Home Smell Like Fall the natural way without artificial scents or fragrances.
You know how certain smells bring back memories? This easy trick really brings me back to me childhood. Cinnamon and oranges are perfect fall scents that remind me of falling leaves, cool breezes, and family gatherings.
I live in Miami now, so I really do not get to experience the fall weather. But this DIY idea makes my home feel like fall, and transports me to those precious memories.
Indeed, research shows that odors are especially effective as reminders of past experience, much more so than cues from other senses, such as sights or sounds. There is just something magical in smells, just like when we are cooking our favorite dishes. Check out my Comfort Food Recipes if you also want to taste your memories and feed your soul.
Artificial Scents Are Not The Best Choice
You are probably seeing lots of fall scented candles in stores, but the truth is most of them are made of petroleum-based paraffin with artificial scents.
Air fresheners are no better. I am very sensitive to fragrances and do not tolerate them.
Strong perfumes or any other artificial scents make me sneeze right away.
There are lots of very popular scented products out there, but be careful because they contain an array of hazardous substances which may compromise your health.
There is nothing better than a natural scent for your home, one that is free of chemicals. Chemical sprays, plug-ins and scented candles contain ingredients that have been linked with a raised risk of asthma in adults and children.

Yes, it is that simple. And your home will totally transform into Fall.
What You Need To Make Your Home Smell Like Fall
Ingredients: A couple of orange peels, and two cinnamon sticks.
Instructions: Fill a small saucepan with water and add the orange peels and cinnamon sticks. Bring it to a boil and then turn the heat down to simmer. Medium heat is perfect.
Within minutes you home will start to smell heavenly! Simmer for about 20 minutes then
add more water if needed. I recommend simmering for about 40 minutes to an hour so the smell can last, but you can simmer for as long as you want.
You can even add more fall ingredients to this recipe. Think apple peels, whole cloves, lemon peels, and vanilla. You can play around with different combinations and see which one is your favorite natural fall scent. Mine is orange and cinnamon for sure.

In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!
