I was just cutting some rosemary for a recipe, and I can’t stop smelling my hand.  I love the smell of fresh herbs 🌿, but I must say rosemary is my favorite. What is your favorite aroma, not perfume, just an everyday scent ?

Re: Rosemary

I love Rosemary however it doesn't like me.  It gives me terrible indigestion.

To me, it is the scent of either lemon or orange.    I just love the aroma when I cut into a fresh lemon.

Another rosemary fan here.  To create a fresh, clean scent, let two cups of water come to a boil with a sprig of rosemary, vanilla extract, and the juice from half a lemon. Toss in the rind, too: It’ll add zest and look pretty.

When I grind up fresh kale  leaves to add to my salads, it makes the house smell like fresh mowed grass...green, clean and lovely! Love the scent!

Re: Rosemary

@indoor kitty I like rosemary but I've never used enough so that I want to grow it.

 

I always have basil growing and often have a few sprigs in a vase on my kitchen counter.

Re: Rosemary

I love Basil and it also can make a home fragrant . The more it is picked the more it grows . Even my hands smell nice after I pick it.

Love the smell of fresh picked basil and freshly zested lemons and limes.
