Scented candles are so last year. But how else can you make your home smell amazing? Whether you’re looking for seasonal scents, something to welcome guests, or to calm yourself after a long day, there are a myriad of ways you can keep your home smelling sensational!
Let’s get into it!
Digital diffusers or misters are a great way to make your home smell delicious! And, thanks to all the wonderous essential oils out there, there’s almost no scent you can’t try to make your home smell great! Even better, certain essential oils can also help clean the air!
Dive into the world of potpourri – a wonderful natural way to make your home smell amazing! Gather a pot, some water, and your favourite aromatic ingredients. Citrus slices, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and a sprig of fresh rosemary make a tantalizing blend. Simmer it gently on the stove, allowing the aroma to waft through every nook and cranny.
DIY reed diffusers
Craft your very own reed diffusers for a touch of homemade elegance. Find a sleek glass bottle, fill it with a carrier oil (think sweet almond or safflower), and add a selection of essential oils like lavender, bergamot, or cedarwood. Insert reed sticks and let them wick up the scented goodness, dispersing it into the air.
Scented linen spritz
Elevate your linens with a personalized spritz. Combine water with a few drops of your preferred essential oil in a spray bottle and lightly mist your curtains, pillows, or even carpets for a subtle but delightful aroma.
Use fresh herbs
Why not let nature’s fragrances dance around your home? Arrange bouquets of fresh herbs like mint, basil, or thyme in decorative vases. Not only do they add a delightful scent, but they also bring a touch of greenery indoors.
Alternatively, you can use dried herbs in small bowls. Just place them in high-traffic areas or where drafts like to waltz through!
Clean and deodorize naturally
Keep your home smelling fresh by maintaining cleanliness. Sprinkle baking soda on carpets before vacuuming to absorb odours and use vinegar-based solutions for cleaning to naturally deodorize surfaces.
Simmer seasonal ingredients
Embrace the scents of the seasons! In summer, infuse water with cucumber and mint for a refreshing mist. In winter, boil a pot of water with vanilla and cinnamon for a cosy ambience.
