Leftover Oranges = Good-Smelling House

We had several leftover small navel oranges this week, and I've been needing a new candle or potpourri around here. I opted to simmer the sliced oranges on the stove while I did laundry, and it smells great. I was worried the spring weather would ruin the normally fall/winter scents, but it worked! I used about 3 cups of water, two small oranges, a teaspoon of ground cloves, and 3 caps of vanilla.

I brought the mix to a bubble on high, and then reduced to simmer. Ta-da!
