Two Ingredient Potpourri

About: Hello and welcome to my instructable! I'm Melissa, a bartender working in the Pacific Northwest. My hobby (and job) is mixing drinks. I love coming up with new and delicious ways to drink booze. Some recipes...

Intro: Two Ingredient Potpourri

Make your house smell like fall with just two simple ingredients you probably have laying around!  Oranges and cinnamon sticks!

Step 1: What You Need

This is a super easy do it yourself way to make your entire house smell like Autumn.  The cinommon and citrus of the orange blend together to make your home smell warm and inviting without being too strong.

What you Need: 
At least One Orange
At least 4 cinnamon sticks 
A small pan
Water

Step 2: Step 1

The first thing you need to do is cut out the meat from the orange and leave yourself with just orange peels.  It's okay if you leave a little of the orange meat on there, it won't change anything.

Step 3: Next...

Take your orange peels and place them into your pot.  (if you used more than one orange, adjust the pan size accordingly.)  For every orange you add, add one more cinnamon stick. 

Step 4: Last Step

Simply fill your pan up with water, and place on the stove on a high temperature.  Once the pan starts boiling, turn the heat down to low and set a timer for every 30 minutes or so.  This is so the water doesn't all boil away and your stuck with a burnt pan with oranges and an awful smelling house.  I love the way this makes my house smell...just like Autumn.
