Hmm, Here's Why Tarek El Moussa's Recent IG Post Has Us Scratching Our Heads

Use Rosemary While Vacuuming to Improve Home's Scent

Casa Verde: Herbal Remedies

While I do love living with my four-legged canine friend, sometimes I worry that our house might retain a little of that doggy smell. Even though no one's ever actually said this, I'm definitely paranoid about the matter.

So, to combat dog hair and dog odor, I vacuum our house daily. However, when I do a weekend deep clean, I always grab sprigs of rosemary from the bushes outside of our house.

Once back inside, I crumple the needles up and liberally sprinkle the rugs in our house with the crushed, aromatic herb. When the vacuum sucks up the herbs, the entire house is filled with the scent of rosemary and my worries about a canine-scented casa are put to rest!

Another side benefit is that rosemary is also noted as a tick and flea deterrent. Even though we use a monthly flea treatment, it's still nice to know that there's a natural remedy out there as well.

Have you ever used herbs as a way to improve your home's indoor air quality? Tell me about your method in the comments!
