How to Make Your Home Smell Like Cinnamon or Vanilla

Cinnamon and vanilla not only taste good to many people, but the scent of cinnamon or vanilla can invoke a warm, comforting feeling. Making your home smell like cinnamon or vanilla is not difficult or expensive. You don't have to resort to chemical deodorizers to make your home have a pleasant, inviting odor, and you don't have to bake pies or make any other dishes to fill your home with a cinnamon or vanilla scent.

Cinnamon sticks release fragrance when heated.

Boiling Cinnamon

Step 1

Place three to four cinnamon sticks in a pot of water on your stovetop. Bring the water to a boil.

Step 2

Turn the burner off after the water has reached a rolling boil. The heat releases the cinnamon stick's fragrance, which will waft through the house.

Step 3

Re-heat the water when the fragrance dissipates. You can do this several times to keep the cinnamon fragrance strong in the home.

Using Cinnamon or Vanilla Essential oil

Step 4

Saturate cotton balls with cinnamon or vanilla essential oil, as suggested by Heloise Hints.

Step 5

Place the balls on saucers throughout the home. The fragrance should last for a few days.

Step 6

Replace the saturated cotton balls with new ones once the fragrance wears off.
