Room Scents made in the Crockpot


Fall and winter are the perfect time of year to make your own natural holiday room scents!


Cooler weather means spending more time indoors and holiday entertaining with friends and family. Your home will smell cozy, comforting, festive and absolutely delicious with these all natural holiday room scents made in the crockpot.

I’ll pass on the artificially scented candles and room sprays. While many of these do smell nice, they are filled with synthetic fragrances and chemicals associated with hormone disruptions, allergic reactions, migraines, sinus pain, mental vagueness, dizziness, eye and skin irritations and more. These chemicals are known to accumulate in human tissue and impact the function of the body. I choose to stick with my natural room scents that I think smell even better!

And these natural room scents couldn’t be more easy to make because they’re made in the crockpot! Oh how I love crockpots and this is just one more reason to love them. Just put your room scent ingredients in a crockpot (I love THIS mini one for my room scents, but you can use any size crockpot), fill it with water, turn it to low and you’ll have such a lovely holiday scent all day long.


Here’s 3 of my very favorite natural holiday room scents:

How to make Room Scents in the Crockpot:

    I love that you’re not suggesting people use any “real food” that could otherwise be eaten, well, except for the ¼ C of cranberries 😉

    Enjoyed your post. I had not thought of cranberries however. I use the wood stove because it is going all winter and uses no electricity . Thank you for the recipes.

    Can I just triple ingredients and use a regular crockpot? I don’t own a mini…

    I’m Going To Get My Mini Cockpot Out Today! I’ve “Trained” My Family That When They Peel Any Citrus, To Put The Peels In A Baggie And In The Freezer For Making My Household Cleaner, So I Always Have Some On Hand. Now I Can Use Them For This Too 🙂

    I cannot wait to try this … along with lots of other great ideas on your website! I was wondering if you know what I can use to get a Christmas tree smell. I love the scent of balsam fir.

      Oh Gina, I love the smell of balsam fir, too! Smells just like Christmas 🙂 There is balsam fir essential oil that you could use! Just add a few drops to the holiday spice recipe above and I think you will fall in love!

      If you can’t find balsam fir essential oil locally, here’s the link to the one I use that I get online: http://amzn.to/1xSw4WM

    I put the first scent together in my little crockpot a few hours ago. I didn’t have cloves but I added the leftover skins of a an apple and it smells great!! Thanks for the post. 🙂

    So the wax melting items such as Scentsy are not good for you? What if you use essentials oils in the Scentsy Warmers? The Warmers are plugged in and use a small light bulb to warm the dish.

    Great post! We’ve been dehydrating and saving orange peels for the last 2 months for just this purpose. They rehydrate nicely in the water and still put off a nice, potent scent. Never thought of cranberries.

    I use my rice cooker for this purpose. It does a great job.
