Natural Orange and Fir Vinegar Cleaner

We decided to go up into our mountains this year and cut down a Christmas tree. I will be using the needles for medicine, but I also wanted to make an easy vinegar spray that smells good too! I just threw in fresh orange peels, fir needles and you can add whole cloves too if you like. Cover with white vinegar, label and strain in 4 weeks. Place in spray bottle and use as needed. These ingredients all have a wonderful aroma and antimicrobial properties! So if you bought a live tree this year save those needles for a natural cleaner and dry some extra to throw into your tea to help with any respiratory infection.
