I love to use a little cinnamon in water boiling on the stove to make my house smell a little homey. Sometimes when someone calls for a unexpected visit to make my house smell like cookies are baking, I just put cinnamon in a pot with water and put it on the stove to boil. The smell is so relaxing (like mom is baking cookies). The smell lasts much longer than the can sprays. Lot cheaper too.

I like to do this for holidays. I also put in orange peels, cloves, slices of apple (or even just the core). If you have a small crockpot or slow-cooker, it's even better! Just leave the lid off, or slightly off. (04/02/2008)
