FOOD / DIY: Spiced Orange Air Freshener

Friday, December 6, 2013

Earlier today I was craving my grandma's bacalao, so when I got home I settled for second best - rice with octopus, squid, tuna & a red onion salad!~ ay ay ay que rico! ;} 
As much as I love these seafood dishes, the lingering smells aren't as pleasant - especially when it sticks to your clothing! And naturally, abuelita's got a home remedy for that!

For this you'll need the following: 
- 1 orange

And one or more of these: 
- cloves
- cinnamon (sticks or ground) 
- ginger (preferably ground) 
- ground nutmeg 

-  Peel the orange**
- Fill a medium size pot with luke warm water
- Add the orange peel and a pinch of any of your ground ingredients and/or a few cinnamon sticks.
- boil on a medium low heat
- Enjoy the amazing smell!~

**If you keep the orange peel in tact all the way through the peeling process, you'll have the chance to make a wish at the end. This belief was passed down to me from my grandma, and till this day, I always do my best to keep the peel together :)

Happy wishing!
