Fill a sauce pan with water and set it on the stove. Turn the heat on high so the water will boil.
Add 2 tablespoons ground pumpkin pie spice to the water. If not available, add 1 tablespoon each of nutmeg, cloves and ginger to create pumpkin pie spice yourself.
Place 2 to 4 fresh cinnamon sticks into the water.
Pour 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the boiling mixture. Turn the heat down to simmer once it has reached the boiling point.
Simmer the ingredients for an hour to freshen your home with the scent of pumpkin pie spices.
