Orange & Clove Air Freshener

While taking a look on Tree Hugger, I found this cute slide show of halloween decorations that wouldn’t end up as landfill, and one really caught my eye, because it could be done any time of the year.

Grab an orange (or any citrus fruit), perhaps even use one that’s a little past the stage of eating. Before throwing it out, get some use out of it. Pop some whole cloves in to the orange in any desired pattern – a love heart, a peace sign, scary face – whatever works for you!

Either pop it somewhere in your home or office or even in your wardrobe to get rid of any musty smells. Just grab a wooden or metal skewer to make the holes for the cloves & be sure to space the wholes to allow for the size of the clove head.

Organic Cloves

Clove Oil is traditionally used for cleaning mould, so some clove and citrus in a musty wardrobe is a brilliant idea. Grab the citrus from any fruit shop or supermarket, and we have 30g bags of organic cloves from Gourmet Organic Herbs for just $3.90. They also do a great range of organic vinegars, sweet chilli sauce, salad dressings, mustard (with no sugar or preservatives) and a vast array or other organic herbs.

If you have any requests for additions to our organic food range, please get in touch with us. We’re slowly developing the range and only taking on foods that pass our own quality control & taste testing. The Loving Earth Chocolate taste testing was such a chore!
