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.

Love This? Never Miss Another Story.
