Lemon, Rosemary, Vanilla

I am obsessed with smells.  Seriously, I am.  I love candles, potpourii (I have NO idea how you spell that, ha!), room sprays, body sprays, perfume... as long as the scent appeals to me, of course.  I like light and fresh scents, with the occasional floral, and in the fall of course I like more spicy scents.

So, I was hanging out on Pinterest awhile back, and saw a pin that said "Make Your House Smell Like Williams Sonoma."  Well...I have to admit, I've never even BEEN in a Williams Sonoma...but I saw lemons in the picture so I was sold. 

I had to try it!

I already had all of the ingredients, so I just threw them in my mini crock pot.  The recipe said to put them on the stove, and next time I do this, I'm going to try that because the scent was a little weak in the crock pot...maybe the stove will work better. 

All you need is one sliced lemon, a few sprigs of rosemary, two teaspoons of vanilla, and water.  Add it all to a pot and simmer! 

It does smell lovely!

    1. Hi Michele! I'm sure you'll love it!

      Thanks for the follow :) I followed you a couple days ago.

  3. Mmmm, I love smells, too. I love Magnolia and Peach in the Spring/Summer, and Pumpkin Spice around the Fall/Holidays.

    My son discovered last month he loves the smell of Rosemary, so I went and bought a Rosemary plant to have here at home.

    I'll definitely have to give this one a try.
