Winter Holiday Mulled Cider Air Freshener
My local supermarket sells an air freshener with a label that reads: “This product is banned in California because it causes cancer.”
It contains dichlorobenzene, a chemical that is a central nervous system depressant, a powerful kidney and liver poison, and one of the chlorinated hydrocarbons that is long-lasting in the environment and is stored in body fat.
Whoa. Who needs that?
Instead, try this spicy seasonal air freshener. It not only works, it provides you and your family and friends with a great hot drink while it wafts a welcoming holiday scent into the air. It smells absolutely divine and tastes great, too!
2 sticks cinnamon
5 or 6 whole cloves
8 cups apple cider, or as needed (you can substitute water for the cider)
Just place the ingredients in a pan and simmer over low heat for a number of hours on a back burner of your stove (checking frequently to replace evaporated liquid–about 1 cup every hour). The simmering releases the spices aromatic oils. Strain out the spices before drinking.
