How To Make your Home Smell Wonderful - Similar to a Williams and Sonoma Store

Make Your Home Smell Wonderful...

I don't know about you, but I love to have my home smell wonderful, but I'm allergic to many "fake" scents and they never smell that great to me.

Whenever, I walk into a Williams and Sonoma store, the store always has a very fresh inviting scent that is very natural and not overpowering. 

Well I came across this recipe at a wonderful blog I follow, "One Good Thing by Jillee" and was so happy to have found this recipe.  Now I can share it with you as well.  Visit Jillee's blog for so many great tips too.

Would you like your home to smell great and natural? I'm not sure what Williams and Sonoma recipe is, but here's a similar recipe and it sure smells wonderful... Enjoy...

Williams and Sonoma Scent   


Almost like the "Williams and Sonoma" Store Scent Recipe

  • 1 lemon
  • Rosemary
  • Water
  • Vanilla

One lemon, cut into slices, a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, a pot filled about 2/3 with water, and 1-2 T vanilla. Simmer on low all day long, and just add more water as needed! You’ll love the wonderful smell of your home!! The mixture will last a few days. Pour it down your drain when it’s done to freshen up the smell of your disposal.

Good morning Joyce. I am torn about this. On one hand a fresh smell is inviting and enticing. On the other hand no one has this all the time and I sometimes wonder if it is an attempt to cover a residual smell up.

MMMMM . . . I am so doing this!
Did you know that the scent of Rosemary also increases blood flow to the brain making it easier to focus?

Thank you for sharing this with us. When I walk by a rosemary plant, I can't help but rub the leaves to get a bit of the scent on my hands. It is the epitome of a clean aroma. I'm sure with the lemons and vanilla it will be wonderful.

I'm trying this tip today, however, should this receipe simmer all day to be effective or could you remove the pot to other areas of the house to be scented?
