So Fresh and So Clean Hostess Gift

So I was just tickled to death when my friend AK popped in the other day and exclaimed how fabulous my house felt- she couldn't quite put her finger on why it was so welcoming. I immediately dragged her to my stove and showed her the above pot simmering away.   It makes your house smell fresh and delicious!

Another Pinterest idea- found here

Super simple- fill a small pot with water, add a sliced lemon, 2-3 sprigs of rosemary, and 3 tablespoons of vanilla extract.  Bring it to a simmer, and sit and sniff like I did!

Another idea? Wrapping the ingredients up in a little pot and bringing them as a hostess gift to the next party you attend!  Add a cute little tag with instructions, and that hostess will have a lovely day cleaning and airing out her house the next day post party!


  1. I saw that on Pinterest and thought it sounded brilliant. That would make an absolutely lovely hostess gift!!

  2. I love this idea! We have rosemary growing like crazy in our backyard...I think I'll definitely be trying this this weekend :)

  3. LOVE this idea!! I think I will be trying it this weekend as well!!

  4. I saw something similar on Pinterest as well, and just now may have to try this. I love the idea for bringing as a hostess gift. So cute!

  5. I was curious about this. What does Dell Harper think? Tell AK I said hello!


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
