Make every room in your home smell good.
The first step to making your home smell good is choosing the right scent. Scent is intimately tied to emotion, so it shouldn’t be overlooked when designing the features of your immediate surroundings. Each room in your home should not only reflect your style and the vibe you are trying to create, but also compliment other aromas within that space or combat the odors that get trapped in that area.
Controlling fragrance in the kitchen can be challenging. You want that space to smell fresh and clean, but the aromas that linger from cooking can interfere with your efforts. The best option would be to use a lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit scent to help neutralize any odors from your food preparation and keep the area full of freshness. Choosing a scent that is too flowery or woodsy might not blend well with the opposing odor and create a more unpleasant aroma.
The bathroom is a space where smells can be problematic and hard to eradicate. Diffusers with essential oils are a great solution because they can purify the air and tend to be more powerful than other home fragrance options.
The scent in your office should be energizing, uplifting and bright. You want to stay focused so you can be successful at your job. Diffuse peppermint essential oil to improve mental function, relieve stress and help boost your productivity level.
The Living Room
Most of our time is spent in the living room, so the fragrance should reflect your personal style and preference. If you want a clean and crisp feel, try incorporating citrus or apple scents. If you prefer a warmer and inviting atmosphere, try richer scents such as amber, sandalwood and cinnamon. Floral fragrances are also very popular as it is a cheerful scent and tends to uplift your mood.
The scent in your bedroom should be soothing and relaxing. Lavender and vanilla are the most favored scents for a calm and peaceful environment. If you have trouble falling asleep, lavender has been shown to help you fall asleep faster and get a better night’s rest. The scent of vanilla can steady the heart rate and lower blood pressure to help you relax so you can sleep.
Now that you’ve chosen your fragrances, you need to figure out how to distribute that fragrance in each room. There are many ways you can spread fragrances around your house. You can utilize a wax warmer, an ultrasonic diffuser or a pluggable diffuser.
The Gift of Scent has a nice selection of fragrance products to fit all your living spaces and compliment your personal style.
Have a fragrance filled day!
