The smell of a house is just as important as the looks, a good smelling home may be even more important than it’s design! Here are some great ways to give your dream home that perfect aroma!
Potpourri can smell great when sitting in a dish on a counter, however, it quickly will collect dust and there is an even better way to use potpourri. Simply, recreating the magic over the stove. Fill a small saucepan with water, add some sliced lemons, oranges, and herbs. Keep the simmer on a low heat. Within just minutes the handmade potpourri will give the home a variety of aromas.
There is nothing more soothing than taking a relaxing shower. But, adding a little aromatherapy can make any shower feel like a spa. Tie up a few sprigs of your desired fragrant herbs, such as rosemary, lemon balm, or thyme. Place them in a far corner where they won’t get wet. Whenever someone takes a hot shower the steam will activate the essential oils in the herbs!
A Little Venting
One of the most calming scents is the one coming from the laundry machines. This smell can easily be recreated throughout the home. Place a few dryer sheets behind vents throughout the house and the laundry aroma will fill every room!
Essential for the Furnace
Next time, you have to change the disposable furnace filter, take this opportunity to freshen the home with a light scent. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil on the new filter and it will disperse throughout the house as air circulates. Not only will the air have to improve quality, but a pleasant lingering scent.
Try any of these great tips to ensure a great smelling home. Lastly, candles, incents, or any air fresheners work to give great aromas in the home!
