  • In your crock pot, steam (half cup of water) three or four sliced apples and cinnamon and a half cup sugar and just let it simmer. Good part of this is you can always just put it over some ice cream later!

  • if you have a garbage disposal you can put a slice of lemon or lime in it for some fragrance!
    plant some lavendar or mint. buy some alcohol (like vodka) and you can make yourself an essential oil once the herbs bloom
    if you make your own vinegar cleaners you can add some lavendar essential oil or tea tree oil essential oils for added fragrance, plus tea tree oil is an germ fighter.
