How to Make Your House Smell like a Spa


When you decide to list your house for sale there are lots of things to do to get it ready to show to potential buyers.  One of the most important things on your checklist will be making sure your house smells good when you have a showing appointment.  A very inexpensive way to accomplish that is with fresh herbs.

Recipe for a great smelling house:

What you will need on hand:  Water, a pretty ceramic bowl and fresh Rosemary or Mint leaves or both!

  1. Boil 2 cups of water about a half hour before your showing appointment
  2. Poor water into ceramic bowl on the kitchen counter
  3. Add about ½ cup of fresh Rosemary or mint leaves
  4. Let it steep into the air

(Some suggested additions to try are lemon slices and ½ teaspoon of vanilla.)

Now enjoy the relaxing fragrances of fresh Rosemary or Mint until the buyer arrives!  The first thing they will notice is how good your house smells!  And what a great way to begin showing your home!
