Hi everyone and Merry Christmas Eve!
Today’s little tip is adding wonderful scents to our homes. We, of course, love herbs and the scents of them are so yummy! I will use the odds and ends stems and leaves and just simmer them in a pan on the stove on a regular basis. Nine times out of ten, our house will smell like I am whipping up some fabulous Italian dinner!
Another wonderful way to have a lovely herb scent is to buy potted herbs to keep in your house. This is our Rosemary Christmas tree.
We will keep it trimmed and use the Rosemary throughout the winter months and then plant it in our yard in the Spring. To keep your plant releasing it’s scent, all you have to do is pet it! That’s what I said, PET your plant! Run your hands up the plant and you will release the natural oils.
We have a small herb garden growing in a window at the princess’s school and the kids just love the fact that they can “pet” their plants.
So enjoy delicious natural scents in your home with a couple of potted herbs!
