Easy Crock Pot Air Freshener

Easy Crock Pot Air Freshener

There’s nothing like the smell of warm apple dumplings or pumpkin pie baking in the oven.  It feels your house with such a wonderful aroma!  But since we can’t make every day, we have no choice but to use scented candles, scented oil, etc.  OR….you can try this easy recipe and make your own Easy Crock Pot Air Freshener.

It is less expensive that a lot of the air freshener’s on the market.  It’s quick and easy.  And the ingredients are your basic, everyday baking ingredients.

Recipe for Easy Crock Pot Air Freshener

1 1/2 cups warm water
4 cinnamon sticks, broken into pieces
1 tsp. imitation vanilla
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 1/2 tsp. vegetable oil

Directions: Place the ingredients into a crock pot and mix together. Let simmer with lid off.  If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can also use a pot on the stove on low heat. Be careful to watch the pot, and add additional water as needed, as the heat will cause the water to evaporate.

Tips:  Feel free to substitute or add other ingredients like orange or lemon zest, peppermint extract, or anything else you think would smell good.




  1. Thanks for good tip. Definitely will use it in my house.

  2. Finally! An air freshener in a crock pot that is worth making. Made it yesterday and it is great. At 78, I have tried many in various “pots” and this is the one. I used real Vanilla.

  3. Love the idea, but if I’m going to use those ingredients, I’ll make sticky buns or raisin bread or something I can eat when I smell the spices! 🙂
