Simply Wonderful Air Freshener

    This is one of those simple but lovely things you can do to add a little shassy to your life and make your house smell wonderful!  No spray cans, candles or buying refills for the newest, air freshener gadget.

Materials needed:
A couple sticks of Cinnamon or a tsp of ground Cinnamon
A couple Vanilla Bean stalks or a splash of Vanilla
 3 cups of Water

Orange rind
Lemon rind
Fresh Mint
Fresh Peppermint 
Fresh Lemon Balm
Fresh sliced up Ginger
and so on...
   Play with the spices and the aromas they produce.  You are only limited by you.
   Add the water and spices to a pot and bring it to a boil.  At this point you turn the heat down to a simmer or transfer the brew over to a mini crock pot. 
   Add water when it needs it.  Make sure to turn it off before bed.  Next day, turn the heat back on to a simmer and add water if needed.   I use my brew for 3-4 days before tossing it. I then start over with a new choice of spices.  Enjoy!
