How to make your home smell like vanilla.

Is there a more comforting or delicious smell than vanilla? It fills a home with thoughts of lazy Sunday morning pancake breakfasts, running home from school to a snack of freshly baked cookies just out of the oven, or long conversations with a good friend over cups of tea and homemade cake.

Realtors often want potential homebuyers to be able to imagine themselves in the house – the Sunday pancakes and afterschool snacks and those friends at the kitchen table. Realtors love this simple trick before an open house to make a house even more enticing: vanilla extract.

Pour two teaspoons of McCormick Extra Rich Pure Vanilla Extract in a coffee cup, then place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Within twenty minutes the whole house smells like heaven. McCormick’s all-natural extract delivers an exceptional aroma, bolder, warmer, evoking the vanilla flavor you grew up, and making the house feel more like a home.

When you do have time to bake, be sure to use McCormick’s Extra Rich Pure Vanilla Extract – and let those flavorful and welcoming aromas fill the house, along with platefuls of delicious treats. Invite friends and family over to share and create new delicious memories while savoring unbeatable homemade cookies using the highest quality ingredients.

Between the smells and the taste, they won’t be able to resist an invitation!
