Let’s get your house ready for summer


…Summer. I can practically feel it!

Long evenings nursing a glass of something fruity. Opening the curtains to blue skies. Plenty of family time, filled with laughter and love.

It’s just around the corner. In fact, we welcome this new season on June 21st. That’s only 3 weeks away, people! And if you’re as ready for it as I am, it’s time to get that home prepped…

Get your home summer-ready, the natural way

Step 1: Use the power of smell

I love a good simmer pot (also sometimes called “stovetop potpourri”). During December, it’s rare to find my stove without a pot of bubbling water, filled with cinnamon, cloves, oranges and anything that makes the kitchen smell like Santa’s Grotto!

For summer? Throw a sliced lemon, a sliced orange and some fresh lavender into a pot of water and put it on a low heat. It will make your home feel like all of the things you love about the summer season. Just keep it topped up with water, so that nothing burns.

Step 2: Keep bugs at bay

If you have spare limes from your simmer pot and aren’t planning on margaritas any time soon, here’s a little trick.

Slice this versatile fruit in half and then poke a few cloves into the inner flesh. It’s a great way to keep mosquitos away, without having to use any potentially harmful chemicals in your home or garden.

Step 3: Reconnect with nature

A great one to do with the kids, planting a small herb garden is a powerful way to connect with the season and spend some time away from your screen this summer!

If you’re lacking garden space or even live in an apartment, this hanging herb garden



could be the perfect option. Tasty salads coming right up…
