Lemon Vanilla Spice Air Freshener

(To be backdated to appropriate holiday date) Another allergy free cheap, light, air freshener using the crock. Prior posted versions, Apple Spice & Orange Spice also featured a No Sew Blanket made while the crock simmered. Today's No Sew Blanket was for Cousin Cake Queen with whom this Vegetarian Slow Cooker shares a Farmville addiction.  Cake Queen served as my Farmville pusher over Thanksgiving.  The blanket's assorted vintage cherry seed packets seemed a perfect fit. Not only does she harvest virtual cherry trees, she makes killer cherry jam using cherries from her father's tree.

Prior to being overtaken by this crack like game, Cousin Cake Queen made amazing whimsical cakes.  The most spectacular of which was a complete three dimensional cake statue of Harry Potter, head to toe.  Photos of it did not survive.  Here is some of her other work.

Winner, Loser or Meh

This air freshener was light and barely perceptible. It really did lighten the air. It looked like this.


I used a 2 1/2 quart crock for this, but a smaller cor larger crock will work just fine as well.  Just adjust the water.

  • 2 sliced lemons
  • 1 Tbls pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbls white vinegar
  • 2 -3 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 whole cloves  (or 1 Tbls allspice)
  • 2 quarts water
Add all ingredients to crock and simmer on low with the lid slightly ajar.  This can go for a couple of days at least.
