Creating a pleasant home experience is not only about the looks – the sense of smell also plays a huge part. After all, you want to create the best experience for yourself to relax at home, spend time with your family and entertain guests. You have to engage more sense than one to do that.
So today, we want to share with you 6 of our favorite ways to make your home smell nice (while improving the look at the same time).
Essential oil diffuser
An essential oil diffuser is really easy to use – all you should do is to fill it with water, add a few drops of essential oil in it, and turn it on. The diffuser will then create a fine mist that will carry the beautiful scent of those essential oils throughout your house, making your place smell really nice and pleasant. I bought two of these Cool Mist Air Fresheners, one for my office and one as a gift for my daughter, we both love it!
Another quick way to deal with smells in your house is fabric spray which, truth be told, won’t eliminate them completely, but it’ll cover them up for some time. Essential oils are a good way to go – just pour some water in a small spray bottle, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, and a bit of baking soda, and voilà – your fabric refreshing spray is all done!
Gel air fresheners
Crafting some scented gel air fresheners is another way of putting essential oils to good use, and what’s even better about them is the fact that they’re really easy to make. You can customize your favourite scents, use some cool colours, and even add decorative items like dry flowers or shells – possibilities are truly infinite, but they’ll definitely make your home smell really nicely! You can also purchase ready-made gel air fresheners made with essential oils like this energizing citrus scent
Air purifying plants
Plants are very well-known for their air purifying characteristics, and you should definitely get some if you still haven’t. Some people say that orchids and palm trees are the best when it comes to purifying the air, but if you think these won’t be enough for your home, you should certainly get the best air purifier for mould. Opt for the one that features HEPA filters that can rid the air of mould spores and improve your home environment in the blink of an eye!
Wax melts and Candles
Scented wax cubes are another way of making your home smell beautifully, and one of the best things about them is that they can spread an amazing scent all over your house. You can always buy them if that’s what you like, but you should know that making them is a lot of fun, plus you’ll be able to customize them according to your own wishes! Scented candles are another affordable option to rid your home of unwanted odours. The large selection that is readily available makes it easy to find the scent that suits is aromatically pleasing to you. Check out this set of four soy candles >>Our Own Candle Company, they come in sweet mini-mason jars. Two of the scents are hot apple pie and lemon pound cake; your home will smell like you just baked up a storm!
Garbage disposal cubes
Your garbage bin is surely the biggest source of some strange food smells that are likely to spread all over your house whenever you open it, but don’t worry – there are ways to clean it properly. You can make some frozen disposal cleaning cubes using citrus and white vinegar. These will make a huge difference, so give them a try as soon as possible.
