  • I will sometimes burn candles or incense. But during the winter, we have a woodstove to heat our living room, and I keep a huge pot of water with potpourri in it.

  • I keep my "baby" crockpot going with Mulling Spices, Orange Peels, and Cinnamon sticks in the hot water, it makes my house smell soooo good. And, for my birthday a couple weeks ago, I was given this AWESOME little "burner". I LOVE it! It takes a tealight on the bottom and then a little "wax square" on top and it melts and smells up my entire house!!! I'm in LOVE!

  • Candles, all different kinds, and the scent changes with each season. Puts your house in the feel of the season I think.

  • momof3inTN I grew up doing the same thing. We had a woodstove and mom always had water on with something in the water. Have you ever used oranges or lemons? She would do the oranges a lot. She would put the peels in the water.

  • I make my own incense. It's a cheap hobby and I can get kooky with the customization.

  • I like candles. ;)

    momof3inTN~~I bet that smells great. Even the woodstove alone smells so good. My parents had a woodstove when I was little, I miss that! ;)

  • We use candles and I have one of those wax burners too. I love it, but I can't find any more of the little wax squares for it.
