DIY Home air Freshener

I stumbled across this little beauty on my Pinterest board the other day.
 I had forgot that I even pinned it.
It's a recipe for a DIY Home Air Freshener.

I am always searching for a lovely home scent. One that makes my house smell amazing.
Now, you might be wondering why I don't just use the ones in the shop or just burn a candle or something.
One reason...
Mr E, The Hubs.
He can't stand any of those smelly things. They make him cough and cranky and I really don't need that.

<Lemon and Rosemary>

So, this scent ticked all my boxes and it's cheap as chips to make.

You will need:
A fresh Lemon
A few sprigs of Rosemary
Vanilla essence
A pot

<lemon, vanilla and rosemary air freshener>

I put half a lemon, sliced, with 3 sprigs of Rosemary and 3 teaspoons of Vanilla in a pot.
Fill the pot up 2/3 of water and that's it.

Let it simmer on the stove or range and enjoy a house that smells of cupcakes.
(My daughter said it smelled of cupcakes.)
Make sure to top it up with water throughout the day or you'll get a burned cupcake smell. Not good!
You should get two or three days out of one pot. After that it gets kinda messy.

Thanks for stopping by!
