Have you ever been to someone’s home and the moment you entered, you felt cosy, relaxed and wished your home had the same ambiance? Home scents can be the reason behind the “all-good” feeling. We all want our homes to have the best fragrances. When you enter your home after a long day at work or from a long vacation, the smell of refreshing fragrances can uplift your mood and serve you to de-stress.
Treating yourself to good scents is a form of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is a form of treatment that improves the health of the mind, spirit, and body medicinally using aromatic essential oils.
We associate our memories with certain fragrances that can make us feel nostalgic. Below is a guide to fragrances that are appropriate for each room of the house.
1. Living room
The living room is the first space everyone goes to as soon as they enter the home. Your living room should smell fresh and calm your mind after a stressful day. How wonderful would it be if your living room could smell like a garden full of lavender? Lavender is known to reduce stress, anxiety and promote calmness.
Use the Crabtree-Evelyn Lavender Home Fragrance Spray to make your living room smell of wonderful lavender. Lavender fragrances can also help you fall asleep which is why you can use it in your bedroom as well.
2. Dining room
Imagine walking into someone’s dining room and smelling a mix of strong cooking smell from spicy ingredients in an Asian household that makes you feel uneasy. You probably do not want your guests to experience that when they visit. Beeswax candles have air-purifying abilities that neutralize strong cooking odours.
Try the Bath And Body Works Champagne Toast 3-wick Candle to make your dining room smell like bubbly champagne and juicy tangerine. The candle is made with the highest concentration of fragrance oils with 3-wicks to help burn the wax evenly.
The room where you spend most of your time should smell refreshing. Citrus flavoured scents can boost happy hormones, energize you and make you more productive.
Try the Air Wick Citrus Freshmatic Automatic Spray, a sweet and tangy scent that will lighten up your mood and last in your bedroom all day.
Do we even need to mention the importance of fragrance for the bathroom? Let’s admit, odours are inevitable in bathrooms and with restricted space its best to avoid strong fragrances. Opt for tropical fragrances that feel refreshing like a spa salon.
For that, Dettol Crisp Breeze Disinfectant Spray is a great option that will not only make your bathroom smell amazing but also ensure the enclosed space is free-from germs. It reduces the growth of moulds and mildew and kills bacteria effectively.
With the right combination of lingering fragrances in every room of your house, you will not want to leave the comfort of your home. Indulge in the aromatic experience and feel nostalgic in your own home.
