Lemon and Rosemary Deodorizer

I wasn’t sure if this was appropriate to put on Plant Based on a Budget, but since it’s technically a recipe and purely plant-based — why the heck not?

At some point I saw something similar on Pintrest and I’m not sure  why I didn’t save it, but I was inspired to attempt recreating after arriving to a stinky home (due to compost) after a weekend away. I picked some lemons off the tree and rosemary from my front yard, making this my cheapest recipe on our blog. I was also most excited that this mixture made my house smell like deliciousness.


  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 2 branches of rosemary
  • 4 cups water


Step 1

Add all ingredients to a medium pot, bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer and let sit until your house smells awesome. It's very important to not let the water dry out because burned lemons and rosemary defeat the purpose of this recipe.

    I wonder how many times can you reuse the same batch?

    You could use this as a lightening and conditioning hair rinse too (after it’s cooled obviously.)
