How to Make your Home Smell Good


10 ways to make your house home smell good

1. Burning incense will fill your home with lovely smells, plus it means you get to have a cute little incense holder around.

2. Burning scented candles is another great way to add sweet smells to your home. As a bonus, candles create a lovely atmosphere. Try beeswax or soy candles for a longer burn time.

3. If you choose the right fresh flowers, they will give a fresh beautiful touch to your home and make it smell great, too. Try floating some frangipanis or gardenias in a bowl of water.

4. Oil burners are a great way to spread the scent of essential oils around your home gently.

5. Mix your favourite essential oil with water in a spray bottle. Now, you can spray around your home to quickly refresh the space.

6. Save any citrus peels and pop these down your garbage disposal for a fresh, zesty aroma.

7. Hiding bowls of white vinegar in the corners of rooms will absorb and neutralise unpleasant odours.

8. Take a large lemon and slice it in half.  Remove the insides, and fill with coarse salt.  Put it in the back of your refrigerator, and it will absorb those funky smells.

9. Don’t forget to open your windows to circulate fresh air. It is amazing how often I forget to do this in winter.

10. Simmer a bottle of water with your favourite spices in it. You can find some great ideas here.
