There is no better feeling in the world than coming back to a clean home after you’ve been working tirelessly all day. Or at least one that smells clean. However, a lot of us don’t want to go crazy spraying chemicals all over our house just to get it to smell that way. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to make your home smell better by using natural ingredients AND a lot of these scents can affect our moods in a positive way! We took the time to test out over 50 natural scents that not only make your home smell better but make you feel better too. Below are our top 5 natural ways to make your home smell better.
Lavender on Pine Cones
Go ahead and grab a couple pine cones from your yard or local park and put a couple drops of lavender on them. It only takes a couple drops per pine cone to do the trick. You can put the pine cones in a basket and leave them in a corner of the room or move them around your house. This trick works wonders for the overall scent of the house and your sense of calm. If you don’t like lavender, cinnamon can get the job done as well.
DIY Essential Oil Sprays
This is probably the easiest and most efficient way to get your home smelling fresh. All you have to do is put a couple drops of your favorite essential oil in a spray bottle with a cup of water and you are good to go!
Adding half a cup of baking soda to a jar with five or six drops of an essential oil is all you need. Just poke holes in the top of a mason jar, add the ingredients mentioned above and you are ready to go. You can leave the jar in any room of your house and it will last between three and five weeks.
Q-Tips and Oil
This works basically the same way as the ideas above. Just put a couple drops of an essential oil that you love on a few Q-Tips and that’s it! The best part about this idea is that the Q-Tips are easy to hide. Whether you do this in your bathroom or any room in your house, your guests will have no idea why your house smells so good..but they’ll love it!
You’re probably thinking, “duh” but, plants and flowers are one of the best way to give your house a fresh smell that you’ll love coming home to. Some of the best plants are palm trees but hop on down to your local Home Depot and pick out the plants you love.
As you have read, making a naturally fresh smelling home isn’t too hard. You just need some basic household supplies and a couple of your favorite essential oils to make your house smell amazing. Once you have it smelling the way you want, sit back and relax and if you ever need anything else done just let us know! All jobs can be scheduled here.
