Slow Cooker Air Freshener

Crockpots are awesome for their convenience and for the little amount of power they use.  This was a perfect combination for what I thought would be the perfect air freshener cooker. 

  


I simply combine delicious ingredients, including wonderful essential oils, in my crockpot and my home begins to smell amazing in no time at all.  As the water cooks away I simply add a little more to it.  Sometimes I leave it covered, but I also take the lid off from time to time to release even more of the wonderful fragrance.  Plus the ingredients are all natural which is a huge plus to me!

Here are a few recipes that I have concocted and am so very happy to share with you.  I have even named the smells... get excited!

1.  Holly Jolly Christmas

(isn't that kinda pretty?!)


Ingredients:
Water
Handful of cranberries
Two candy canes
Couple drops of peppermint essential oil
Teaspoon of vanilla extract
A couple sprigs of fresh pine


2.  That's just "Pine" 


Ingredients
Water
a few sprigs of fresh pine
a couple teaspoons of vanilla extract

3.  So Long Sniffles

This is a great combination for helping get rid of that winter cold.

Ingredients:
water
a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil
one lemon peel


4.  So Fresh and So Clean, Clean



Ingredients:
A few drops of lavender essential oil
2 lemons sliced
Teaspoon of vanilla extract

5.  Welcome Fall



Ingredients
whole cloves

2 oranges sliced (I stuck the cloves in the oranges peel and sprinkled some in the pot as well)
The peels from one apple
4-5 cinnamon sticks
About 2 t vanilla



6.  Apple Cider



Ingredients
Peels of 2 apples (I fed the yummy inside to the kiddos)
4-5 Cinnamon Sticks
Cloves
a dash of nutmeg

This is a really good idea! You could use those crockpot liners!!!!!!!!! (runs off to see what's in the kitchen)

You could buy those liners for your crockpot-and I am sure you wouldn't have to worry about cleaning it then! (I'm way too excited about this.)
