How to make your house smell good

To make your house smell good, you don’t need to spend a fortune on scented candles or room fragrances. We can inebriate our home with 100% natural aromas, choosing the ingredients we like the most at practically no cost! In this post, I will show you how to make your house smell amazing with only one lemon and some aromatic herbs! With this simple simmer pot recipe, I will show you how I have made my home cozy and fragrant by choosing some aromatic herbs from my garden.

This zero-cost room scent is, without any doubt, an excellent alternative to scented candles. Often these latter are based on paraffin which, as they burn, release harmful chemicals into our domestic rooms. To be sure to make our house smell good without any worries, the method I will show you is definitely the most appropriate.

One of the fragrances I love the most is certainly the essential oils contained in the lemon. If you have the opportunity to use a freshly picked or organic lemon, don’t miss the chance to use it in this recipe and fill your home with its pleasant and relaxing notes. Together with the lemon, I used aromatic herbs such as mint, rosemary, and sage.

Once we get our ingredients:

  • we cut the lemon into small pieces and prepare our herbs on a work table.
  • In the meantime, we fill a pot with water and bring it to the boil.
  • We dip the lemon and herbs in the water and stir.
  • When the water boils, we lower the heat. Over time the essential oils will be released and spread in our house. If over time the water should evaporate too much, add more as needed.

It is also possible to store it in the fridge and reuse it in the following days. Simply heat it up and enjoy the sensorial notes of the aromatic herbs again.
