Aloha friends! How are you all doing!? Swell, I hope! Here in Germany it rains almost every, day even though it's summer. Being a California girl, I need a little bit of summer in my life, and this recipe sure helps!
There aren't a ton of yummy natural candle options in the local area and the Yankee candles available run about $25! Yikes!! I wanted my home to smell delicious without breaking the bank and using up our precious traveling money. The whole point of this blog is to enjoy the beautiful things without dropping a lot of dough, so, I came up with this awesome summery scent!
I grabbed random items in my kitchen and was determined to create a yummy-licious tropical scent that would penetrate my nostrils and make me wanna do the hula!
We are all familiar with the Christmas Stovetop Potpourri (click here to get that recipe), here is my summertime version!
It smells like a pineapple upside down cake is baking in the oven....yum!
In a saucepan:
-Throw in a few sliced lemons, limes, and oranges
-Add a can or two of pineapple juice
-Drizzle an ounce of coconut extract
-Top it off with a few cups of water and.....
Let it simmer all day long!
If you aren't a coconut kind of person you could simply do citrus and pineapple! You can add more or less of these ingredients.
Remember to turn the stove off when you leave your home. You can add more liquids as it simmers away. This concoction should last you a few days.
I hope you all have a blessed day and get your home smelling tropical!
