How To Make Rosemary Room Mist

Rosemary is one of my favorite herbs. I grow quite a lot of it each year because I use it in my kitchen, and in my soap shoppe. Tuscan Rosemary is my favorite variety; its delicious fresh, and it infuses like a dream. Today I am going to share with you my DIY recipe for a bright, herbaciuous room freshener.

Rosemary Room Mist

15 sprigs of fresh rosemary
8 oz. isopropyl alcohol
8 oz. distilled water
Mason jar
16 oz. spray bottle

Place the rosemary and alcohol in a large screw top mason jar and set the jar in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks. Shake the jar vigorously each day. After 2 weeks, remove the lid and place a piece of cheesecloth over the jar and strain the rosemary tincture into a spray bottle. Add 8 oz. of distilled water to the tincture. Shake well before each use.

Joan, I have not transplanted a Rosemary plant from outdoors to indoors, but I see no reason it would not thrive. Just make sure the pot is large enough for the root system to grow. Good luck!

I was hoping to find a use for my Rosemary plant (bush?) before it is destroyed by the frost. (Food recipes only use a sprig here and there.) It is in a sheltered place, so still thriving. I’m considering digging it up and bringing it indoors. Have you had much luck with that?


SPE, I do not have problems with staining becasue I do not use it on fabrics. Also, the bottle I use is a super fine mist automizer so it does evaporate fast.

Sounds nice, do you have to be concerned with staining or does it evaporate fairly quickly?


Lynne, thanks for hanging in there are reading/commenting. The spray will stay fresh for many weeks. I have added a few drops of rosemary essential oil to give it some oomph and freshen it up.
