DIY Natural Air Freshner

I've never tried a simmering pot air freshner...which seems ridiculous seeing how easy it was...but I didn't have any seasonally appropriate candles so I figured this would be a good time to try one.

My sister, Holly, said she liked to do apples and cinnamon so I had to try that.


 

Of course it made the house smell like pie. No complaints. 


I also searched the web for inspiration and found the combination of lemon, rosemary and vanilla was popular...so I tried that as well.




The lemon rosemary smelt amazing. Although next time I will use a little less vanilla. I believe the recipe said a teaspoon and me being me I just glugged a bunch in the pot. Measuring, Siobhan, learn about it. The house was quite vanilla-y but once I poured out some liquid and topped it up with water the rosemary and lemon came through and I was very happy with the scent.

Lastly I tried pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and vanilla.

I enjoyed all the smells. It's nice that your able to keep the pot on the stove for days as long as you top the water up as you go.

I saw someone else did a pot with pine needles and bay leaves...sounds Christmas-y....must try once Halloween is over!
