Natural Slow Cooker Air Freshner


Don't you just love a nice smelling house? Problem with a lot of 'natural air fresheners' suggestions on web, they involve leaving a pot of the hob to simmer for hours, which to me seemed both inconvenient, a waste of gas/electricity and pretty unsafe. Once again the old slow cooker comes to the rescue. Using the energy of no more than a single light bulb, and safe enough to be left unattended, you can have your house smelling lush for hours, and each day can be different.

Boil water in the kettle, pour it in the slow cooker, turn the setting to 'low' and leave it with its lid off. Toss in any fragrance combination of your choosing, remember this isn't to be consumed so you can be extra creative. Keep the water topped up during the day to stop it drying out, if steam is rising from the pot you know it's working.

Suggested fragrances that can be combined:
Cinnamon sticks, Allspice, Vanilla beans, Cloves, Anise stars, Nutmeg.
Oranges, Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit.
Mint, thyme, Rosemary, Ginger,
Pine needles, Lavender, Cedar twigs, Bay leaves,
Vanilla extract and scented oils.
