Homemade Lemon Air Freshener

Ahhhh, Christmas is over. No more chestnuts roasting by an open fire. No more smells of cinnamon, or peppermint candy canes, or gingerbread houses.


Ok, I just wanted to make an excuse to show off our cute little gingerbread house… It’s so adorable.

So, back to the main story- let’s make some lemon air freshener. To start off, you will need two lemons.


Lucky me, we have a lemon tree. Slice them and place in a pot with 3 cups of water.


Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 15 drops of rosemary extract. Bring to a boil and then simmer. You can simmer all day if you want to, just make sure to keep an eye on it and add water when needed. What’s that I smell? Ah, it’s the sweet smell of lemons, rosemary and vanilla.


So let’s recap the ingredients list again:

  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 lemons sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 15 drops of rosemary extract

Place in a pot, bring to a boil and then simmer.


Enjoy your simmering pot of potpourri project!
