Simmering Lemon and Rosemary Potpourri
There are many occasions that cause less-than pleasant odors in our home. Strong cooking aromas or a couple of grandbabies with stinky diapers quickly come to mind. I might light a candle or use grab a can of spray but I found a better solution. Just a few natural ingredients in a small pot filled with water and soon we can all breathe easy again.
The first time I made this potpourri and watched as it gently simmering on the stove, the fragrance waifed through the kitchen. Then I wondered if the scent was noticeable throughout the house. I got my answer from two unlikely sources. I stepped outside and back into the house a few times, sniffing the air. Just then, my grandson came traipsing down the steps exclaiming, as only a 20 year-old guy would, “I smell something that smells like something.” I asked him if he thought it pleasant or unpleasant. This scent-sensitive fellow gave it a thumbs up and did not think it overpowering.
