Scent is one of our most powerful senses. It can instantly impact how we feel, especially within the home. So, if you want to make your house a more relaxing, nicer place to be, you’re going to want to focus on how it smells.
There’s a lot of ways to help keep your house smelling fresh and below we’ll explore some of the best options available.
Scented candles are a great addition to the home. They’re affordable, they come in a wide range of scents and they also help to make the room look cosy and relaxing. You can use them to release a burst of freshness after they’ve been lit, or simply leave them unlit to provide a consistent nice aroma.
There’s a lot of different brands of scented candles available. Some will provide a longer lasting scent than others too. Therefore, it’s advisable you buy scented candles from a well-known and respected manufacturer such as NEOM.
Reed diffusers are another great option to consider. They typically provide a fresh scent for up to six weeks, depending upon the brand you invest in. Like candles, they’re available in many different types of scents. You can use them to create a different scent in different rooms. For example, a Lavender scented diffuser could be placed in the bedroom, while an ocean scented diffuser would go great in the bathroom.
It helps to do a little research to determine which diffusers are considered the best on the market. That way, you won’t waste your money on ineffective diffusers.
As well as candles and reed diffusers, you can also try out some natural methods to make the home smell nice. Adding plants, microwaving a bowl with lemon or orange peel, and using essential oils in a diffuser will all make the home smell incredible.
Another great natural air freshener you can try out is a scent-filled jar. Simply simmer some water on the hob, adding scented ingredients such as citrus, cinnamon or apple. Then, pour the water into a mason jar. Place around the home and soon it will smell absolutely divine.
These are some of the easiest and quickest ways to add freshness into the home. When it smells nice, you’ll find it much easier to relax and simply enjoy the space around you. All of the options above are cost-effective, so you don’t need a huge budget to keep the home smelling fresh.
