At some point I saw something similar on Pinterest and Iím not sure †why I didnít save it, but I was inspired to attempt recreating after arriving to a stinky home (due to compost) after a weekend away. I picked some lemons off the tree and rosemary from my front yard, making this my cheapest recipe on our blog. I was also most excited that this mixture made my house smell like deliciousness.


  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 2 branches of rosemary
  • 4 cups water


Add all ingredients to a medium pot, bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer and let sit until your house smells awesome. It’s very important to not let the water dry out because burned lemons and rosemary defeat the purpose of this recipe.

I wonder how much of it is due to genes and how much is due to lifestyles.
