Desi food is no doubt delicious but the strong smell of food even with kitchen exhaust on never welcome your guest to step in.Even I don’t have party or guest invited I always made some DIY or light up scented candles as soon as I finish cooking especially during winter when all windows need to be closed, zero ventilation because we have our heating on almost six months or over.
Let’s discuss, what I do!!
Home Made Stove Pot Pourri
Stovetop Pot-pourri is my favorite DIY to deodorized my kitchen, Its absorb all the aroma of the strong smell of fish, spices/Turmeric etc.
I do make it often but need to change every week as fresh fruit gets rotten.It’s easy and budget-friendly, all you need following ingredients in Mason Jar.
Lime and Lemon: 1 each
Cinnamon stick: 2
Bay Leaves: 1-2
Rosemary leaves: 3-4
Mint Leaves:1/2 Bunch
Star Anise ( Badiyan )
Cut all citrus fruits into thick slices.Take any mason/glass jar, Remove lid from the cap of the Mason jar with the ring on.
Set All dry ingredient inside, Add fruit slices.Place this jar near the stove, you all set to go!!I love the aroma of citrus Rosemary near my stove, it helps eliminate the strong smell.
If you don’t have Mason Jar, take any glass jar and drill small holes or even take the lid out.Change your potpourri every other week and enjoy Citrus Rosemary while you cook.
I love lightening up Candles, easy and affordable.If you remember I DIY one Here.
It’s easy to make but if you don’t have ingredients, store-bought also a hit.I love to buy candles and I have them around my house.
