Try-It Thursday – 2/7/13

I love a good smelling house.  I love walking in, taking a deep breath, and feeling at home.  You can set the mood in your home just by the scents.  Whether you are looking for a romantic feel, a relaxing and calming atmosphere, or fresh baked cookies or apple pie.  There are scents out there for everything.  I use to be a candle junkie.  There was always a candle burning somewhere in my house.  I still enjoy burning a good smelling candle but then I found Scentsy.  Now I find myself turning that warmer on every morning as soon as I get up.  I LOVE Scentsy.  You get amazing smells at a fraction of the cost AND since it’s a warmer, there are no flames.   They are much safer around kids and pets.  If you haven’t discovered it yet, I highly suggest checking it out here.

I have a few favorite scents but love to change things up.  I’ve recently discover simmering different spices on the stove top.  I can remember growing up, my mom use to do this often.  I’ve done the oranges and cinnamon, cloves, and a few others.  I love the strong scent this gives off but it’s not something I want to do everyday or all day long due to it being over an open flame.  However, I discover a new one and had to share.  I’m a little addicted to this one and it’s a good thing I don’t keep lemons in the house or this might be simmering everyday right now.

Here’s what I use;

1 cup of water

2 sliced lemons

3 springs of fresh rosemary

2 teaspoons of vanilla

Within 5 minutes of simmering on the stove, the whole house smells amazing!!  I love it.  Now I just need to find a Scentsy scent like this……
