  • 1/2 whole nutmeg grated
  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon or 5 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice
  • 1/8 cup cloves ground
  • 4 zested oranges or frontier orange peel


  1. Zest and Dehydrate Orange zest in dehydrator or oven. If using the oven,  use parchment or foil and bake at 230 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Watch the oranges so they don't burn. 

  2. Mix together spices and orange zest/peel.
  3. Using a small sauce pan boil 3 cups water. Once at a rolling boil lower heat to simmer add spice/orange zest mixture.
  4. *** If using store-bought, dehydrated orange peel there is no need to bake fresh oranges.

  5. Simmer the air-freshener for as long as you please. This air freshener can be used over and over again. Just add water as it evaporates. Add more home freshener as needed.
