With summer blazing away outside, it's a good idea to bring a spritz of freshness into your home and waken up the sleepy air. With the help of a saucepan, we can cook up a soft, seasonal scent that will smell wonderful. Follow the instructions below to fill the house with fragrance.
You will need:
- 2 to 3 cups of water
- Rose, Eucharis lily and camomile petals
- 1 tbsp extract of tuberose
- Wooden ice lolly sticks (optional)
- Shot glasses (optional)
How to make it:
Combine all the ingredients in the saucepan on a low heat. Simmer gently for a few minutes, stirring constantly. The aromas will quickly fill the kitchen and the rest of the house.
For a longer-lasting effect, fill small glasses (shot glasses will do) with your home-made elixir and place them throughout the house. You can also add the wooden sticks to the elixir so that they are resting in the oil half-in half-out, before placing the glass in the bathroom or hallway.
*One more thing: never use just any cut flower or plant; only work with edible flowers from specialist suppliers that are certified as safe for human consumption.
