    room fragrances 

    Hi, instructions are a little fuzzy. Put the herbs and spices in a jar for a week? with or without water? Bring to the boil then simmer....How long for? are the ingredients whole, cut up, eucalyptus leaves are whole or chopped up? I would be interested in making my own with the ingredients you suggest but hesitate as instructions are not clear. They may be in your head, but then I am not a mind reader...thanks for your help if you can. cheers
