To start, thinly slice some oranges, lemons and apples.
“In one jar, put three or four orange slices, one tablespoon of cloves and four cinnamon sticks,” she advises.
In a separate jar, place eight apple slices, six drops of almond extract, four cinnamon sticks and three slices of oranges.
In your third jar, pop in five lemon slices, two rosemary sprigs and six drops of vanilla extract.
Fill each jar with water and refrigerate until you are ready to use them.
When you’re ready to use, pour the contents of the desired jar into a saucepan and simmer.
“As the water evaporates, refill as needed and the smell will waft around your home,” says Papas. “This is a great trick before any guests arrive or just after you’ve done a big clean of the house.”
