When my nose was really dried out, as it easily becomes in winter, my co-worker gave me this great idea to humidify our apartment using the stove top. Not only does it add moisture to the air, it creates a lovely aroma. I chose to use rosemary, lemon and vanilla, but there are really all sorts of options. Sometime I would love to try lavender.
Side note: my vanilla has little bits in it because I made it by soaking vanilla beans in vodka.
Stick everything in a pot with at least enough water to fill 1/4 of the pot - you don't want all of the water to evaporate and cause the rosemary and lemon to burn. Turn the stove on low and enjoy the moisture and aroma in the air!
This probably goes with out being said, but make sure you turn the stove off after a while.
