This Might Be The Best Thing I Have Found On Pinterest Yet



Another one of my big goals over the summer is to actually do more of what I find inspiring on Pinterest.

(So add that to my list of: getting organized, decluttering, making new foods, losing weight, thrifting, doing fabulous things to my space at Memory Lane and in my Etsy Shop and making memories with my family that will last a lifetime...)

Making this little treat off of Pinterest was definitely quicker and nearly life changing. Ever since the winter-before-last and my freaky bout with pneumonia that landed me in the ICU, I have been a little over the top about breathing in anything such as heavily scented candles or plug ins. So when I saw this pin and was told how goooooood it smelled (like Williams-Sonoma!) I grabbed the ingredients and let it simmer away.

It. Smells.Wonderful.

And more importantly? It got rid of the smell of BROCCOLI in my kitchen within minutes.

Here is what you do:
Slice a Lemon
Add a few springs of Rosemary
Pour in a couple tsp of Vanilla
Add water and simmer.

Easy Peasy and again, it smells soooooooo good and I don't have to worry about any of us breathing it in.

I do something similar in the fall/winter with lemons (or oranges) and cinnamon sticks. Makes the house smell wonderful. I add them to a huge pot of water to add some moisture to the air in the dry winter months!

Mmmmmmm, that sounds yummy, too! Will give it a whirl in September (or when I start doing some Christmas projects to get me in the holiday mood!)

Glad you have reasonable goals for your summer!

Mmmmmm. I have anosmia (no sense of smell to speak of) BUT I can smell vanilla so I am going to try this - I HATE scented stuff because even though I can't really smell it, it stuff up my sinuses. Natural things don't so this is perfect.

It does do that to a LOT of peoples sinuses, you are so right! Let me know when you try it, if you get lots of compliments in your home:)
