  1. I have a parakeet and can’t spray scents or burn candles. I had totally forgotten about using fruit and spices. Thank you for the nice reminder. Have a good day πŸ˜€

    1. I’m so glad I could remind you of that! Now you can make your home smell like fall and keep your parakeet safe. πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you so much for these tips. I love when my house smell so good. I have lots of pines at home. I’m definitely going to try out the ones with cinnamon oil. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You’re lucky to have the pines so you can make the scented pine cones. They work great as Christmas tree ornaments, too. πŸ™‚

    I used to cut cedar and put the pieces in my truck. Kind of along the same lines as your post lol!

    1. I love the smell of cedar! It smells really good hanging in closets, too. πŸ˜€

  10. Oh I love the smell of pine cones this time of year!

    On a totally different note: are you selling items through your website now? I noticed a cart icon on the top banner. I’m intrigued!

    1. Me, too!! πŸ™‚

      I’m trying to set up a store to put my items on, but it’s taking a little bit to get it ready. So stay tuned! πŸ˜€

      1. Oh cool, excited for you!!

  11. Michelle,

    Thank you for this post. Such easy ways to make your home smell good. I really love the reed diffuser idea. They not only smell good but they look good too!

    1. Thank you! The reed diffusers are my favorite, too because they add to your decor. πŸ™‚

  12. These are totally great ideas! I love the idea of making your own infuser!

    1. Thank you so much! They’re all so easy to make, too. πŸ™‚

  13. Thanks for sharing this ma’am. Great!.

    1. You’re very welcome! Thank you for reading! πŸ˜€

      1. Smiles. Always glad to. 😊

  14. Nice, easy way to make the scented candle! Have a great weekend! πŸ’™

    1. Thank you so much! Have a great weekend! πŸ˜€

  15. I LOVE that these are natural! Such great ideas especially as we approach fall and the holidays!

    1. Thank you so much! I’m trying to keep as many chemicals out of our home as possible. πŸ™‚

  16. What a wonderful idea as always Michelle. It would be nice to try something natural, then I have control over the ingredients, and know every thing I would be using—-Thank you for this!!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I agree. It’s easy to control the scent, too. πŸ™‚

  17. Oh, I definitely need to give some of these a try. I love adding scents to my home, but I don’t do it that often and I absolutely love fall scents. I’ll have to see if I can forage some pine cones soon.

    1. We have some already dropping off our biggest tree. I’m going to start saving some up for winter, too. πŸ™‚

  18. My house needs some pretty smells right now. Everything has been closed up for the summer with the air conditioning on all the time. I need to make the scented pine cones I have a ton from up north.

    1. I know what you mean! We finally had a few cool days and I could open the windows, but then it goes right back to being hot. I hope you enjoy making these! πŸ™‚

  19. I love the smell of scented pine cones I find in the store but I never thought of making my own…what a cool idea! Another thing I think is fun to try is cooking a pot of mulled wine or cider. You use so many of the same spices but then have a fun beverage to serve your family and friends.

    1. That’s a great idea. I never thought of doing that! I’ll have to try that, too, especially when it starts getting cold. Thanks for sharing!

      1. You are very welcome. πŸ™‚

  20. There’s no better aroma than apples, cinnamon and oranges simmering on the stove. πŸ™‚

    1. I agree! To me, that’s what fall smells like. πŸ˜€

  21. Deb's Decorative Life

    I can’t wait to try your fall simmer pot recipe. I like to try different simmer pot recipes in the fall. I usually just use spices but now I will be trying fruit too.

    1. Thank you! It always makes my whole house smell like fall. πŸ˜€

  22. Thank you for sharing great tips!

    1. You’re very welcome! Thank you for reading. πŸ™‚

      1. My pleasure! ❀️

  23. Thank you for sharing this. I love the smell of fall and have been trying to get away burning candles since some types are good for allergies. The fall simmer pot sounds lovely, and it’s a good way to make use of things you usually throw away. I’ll have to pick up some cinnamon sticks next time at the store so I can give it a try.

    1. Some of the candles lately are just way too strong. These are a much better option. Having the simmer pot on the stove all day makes my whole house smell like fall. πŸ™‚

  24. Oh, the best scents are fall scents! Cinnamon scented pinecones sounds so good!

    1. I agree!! The pinecones are so easy to make, too. And look great in bowls around the home.

  25. How cool is This! I want to try the scented pinecones. I have tons in my yard.πŸ€—πŸ˜„πŸŒ²thanks Michelle!!πŸ’ž

    1. Thank you! They’re so easy to make, too. πŸ˜€

      1. πŸ˜€πŸ€—

  26. I quit burning candles because our furnace filters were turning black. UGH!! These are great ideas! Thank you!

    1. Oh no! And just to think that is in the air we are breathing. Thank you for reading and sharing!

I love to hear from you!
