I've been a tad quiet on the blog front lately. Sorry about that. Just life getting in the way - a sprained wrist one week and a cracked rib the next! Hopefully things don't really go in threes!
Because it's winter down here in New Zealand and today we're in the middle of a big wind storm, so i'm inside thinking about projects, but struggling with motivation.
A while ago when I was perusing Pinterest I spied a home made scent for the home made from lemons, rosemary and vanilla.
I have lemons and rosemary in the garden so ventured out into the wilds of the windy storm and picked 2 lemons and the rosemary sprigs.
I just used my regular vanilla that I use in baking. However, I did spy natural vanilla at the supermarket, so maybe that might be a really good product to try.
In the pot and on the stove until it heats to boiling point and let it simmer for a while. The fragrance is quite mild, but what I've just noticed is that when I go out of the room, and then come back in, the fragrance is really noticeable and quite gentle.
Something fun and easy to do on a wild and windy day.
Other ingredients you could try - oranges, cinamon, lavender. How about a beautiful lace handkerchief wrapped around sprigs of dried rosemary, or lavendar. Maybe even add some dried lemon balm or verbena.
Here are a couple of ideas I found on Pinterest I might look into.
Eucalyptus hanging in the shower! Great for the sinuses!
I thought these were really interesting, but not sure what liquid is in the jars.
Have a sweet smelling day.
PS sorry about some of the grainy pictures, not sure what is going wrong.
