Do you want your home to smell great for the holidays without spending the big bucks on candles? Head to the kitchen to give this tip a try...

Begin by gathering your supplies - you will need a large saucepan, a few oranges, some cinnamon sticks, a handful of cranberries, and cloves.

Place your saucepan on a small burner and turn it onto low. Add several cups of water and the rest of your ingredients. Note - you can use either the peels of the orange or chopped pieces, it's up to you.

Give it all a stir and let it sit. Once the mixture heats up, your house will smell amazing!

But - remember this is not something to leave unattended as it could be a hazard. If you plan on leaving this on for awhile, remember to add more water throughout the day and to keep children and pets away.

  • one whole orange or just the orange peel
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1 tbsp. Whole cloves
  • 3 sticks of cinnamon or a small handful of small pieces of cinnamon
  • a bit of grated nutmeg if desired
