I simmer the cinnamon and it smells so good! Makes me wonder why people buy those room fresheners... there's no comparison, imo!

I take it a step further and keep apple cider, cinnamon, cloves, other spices, and orange and lemon slices steaming together lightly on the stove. I add a cup or two of water if it simmers down too much in the afternoon. It smells great AND you can drink it.

I LOVE cinnamon sticks and cloves, especially around the holidays. It makes the whole house smell like Christmas.
