DIY Stovetop Room Scent Recipes

DIY Stovetop Room Scents Hiup2Save.com

Does your home ever have that not so fresh, yesterday’s dinner mixed with hubby’s gym socks smell? 😉 I’m in love with these three natural stove top simmering scents that make your home smell super clean and wonderful! Some of these herbs and extracts you may already even have at home. The idea is to bring to a boil 2-3 cups of water along with fresh fruit, fresh herbs, and extracts. Then simmer on low and your home will start to smell amazing. You can also do these in a slow cooker.

DIY Williams Sonoma Scent at home Hip2Save

This popular DIY Williams-Sonoma Scent smells just like that glorious store! I happen to have a rosemary plant in my backyard so I’ll be making this one a lot.

Citrus Mint Natural Room Scent Hip2Save

This citrus mint smells really clean and fresh. If you like anything mint smelling like me you’ll love it.

Christmas Stovetop Scent Hip2Save

My favorite by far though is the holiday scent…and who says your house can’t smell like Christmas year-round!? 😀 The clove and cinnamon smell so great together!


Have fun and create scents using things that naturally grow around where you are. I’ve kept these for a couple of days at a time in a pot on the stove and turned it on when I’m home.

What’s your favorite way to deodorize your home and keep it smelling great?

    Nice! Thank you!

  2. Monika

    That is a great idea!

  3. Rose

    Thanks

  4. Diana

    Love the ideas!

  5. Jeanette

    Thank you! I love using natural scents over chemicals.

  6. Kat

    I’m going to have to try this in a crockpot tomorrow! My go to to freshen a room quickly is baking soda with a few drops of essential oil. I usually use lemon or orange.

  7. Jeanette

    Thank you! We don’t use artificial scents in our house, so this is great! We grow herbs in our backyard 😀

    Add warm water to 5 drops of tea tree oil in a spray bottle. Great smell, anti-bacterial, anti-virus and non-toxic.

  9. Shannon

    I have mixed baking soda and water in the crock pot and left it on low with the lid off overnight and in the morning the smells are gone! It does evaporate so make sure the water level is high. I love the Christmas smell too. I’m definitely going to try this. Walmart had a bag of cranberries for $.75 after Christmas now I’m kicking myself for not grabbing a few bags!

    Is a rosemary bush invasive? And thanks for the ideas. 🙂

    • Julie

      No, rosemary bushes aren’t invasive. I have one growing in my yard. Mint, as you probably know, is. I had heard you should plant it in a pot and plant the pot in your garden. Didn’t work. It spread all over the place. Years later I’m still trying to get it all!

  11. Jen

    I’ve been enjoying the holiday scent for years in my Little Dipper Crock-Pot. Just add water and refresh with an occasional orange slice and cinnamon sticks!!!! Thanks for adding the WS recipe to my air freshener list! Can’t wait to try it out!!!!

    • wendy

      Does it run the little dipper? Like should I have one just for scents ??

  12. liz

    Thanks so much for these 😊 I love the w&s scent!

  13. liz

    Pottery barn scent:

    Lemon cut up
    Some water
    A couple sprigs of rosemary
    Some vanilla

  14. Jay

    I have tried lemon, rose merry, vanilla and we loved it all natural scent!

  15. Liz Ob

    Wooo this is amazing. Ever since my first pregnancy I’ve been so sensitive to candles and room sprays. They make me gag! So this will be a nice option! Thank you Lina!

  16. Denise

    Ooooo thank you! I’m immune to the ‘scents’ of my furbaby cats, but my “supernose” sister is not. I’ll definitely try one of these the next time she visits 🙂

  17. Jlove

    Instead of using orange slices I’ll save the rinds from our oranges/cuties and throw those Ina pot with cinnamon and vanilla.

  18. MA

    We heat with a wood stove on which I have a ceramic tea pot filled with water and thinking this will be terrific to start a batch on the stove to the boiling point, then transfer to the tea pot to stay on top of the wood stove. Thanks so much for the post.
