    Pets'R'us's Note:

    We have cats and dogs and once a month I ”treat” the house using this. I use mostly lavender and rosemary oil but also like lemongrass or peppermint. They say that using lavender and rosemary it not just refreshes but it keeps away fleas and moths. I think that makes sense because I make soap that I use on our dogs and that also uses rosemary as one of the ingredients. If you have friends that like Potpourri as a gift they will also like this.Once you have made this and like it, try to buy the rosemary and lavender in bulk.

      This smelled wonderful! I whirled the lavender and the rosemary in the blender to break it down a little and sprinkled on my rug. After I vacuumed it I got down and smelled the rug, it smelled so clean! Thanks for an easy treatment I will be using alot!!!

      I love this. Just chopped up a cup of fresh rosemary into two cups of baking soda, sprinkled on the carpet and vacuumed up about 1/2 an hour later. The carpets smell lovely but there isn't a weird "chemical" scent coming off them... just freshness. And dang was that cheap.
