Are You Looking to Freshen Up Your Home’s Fragrance?
If you’re looking to make your home smell fresh and inviting, you may feel inclined to use an array of chemically-crafted room sprays to get the job done. From toasted coconut to freshly baked cookies, the list for scent options goes on and on — but what if we told you that those sprays aren’t the best item to use?
Not only can many of them deplete your indoor air quality, but they can also take a toll on your well-being. If you’re looking to take things up a notch when it comes to your home’s fragrance, here are some healthier ways to do that.
Natural Ways to Make a Home Smell Good
You may have used them at one point or another, but essential oils are an excellent way to freshen up your home’s scent. Coming in various blends and fragrances, these oils can be placed just about anywhere to make any room smell as clean and inviting as can be!
One of the best ways to use essential oils is to invest in a diffuser. This little device uses water and a few drops of your favorite essential oil and creates a safe scented-mist through the machine's top. Within a matter of minutes, you’ll reap the sweet reward of a fresh-smelling room.
If you’re a fan of chemically-crafted wax candles, you may want to read this: they’re not ideal for burning in your home (or anywhere, for that matter). Just like a scented room spray, wax candles have an alarming amount of chemicals within their composition. And when lit, those chemicals can go airborne and contaminate your home’s indoor air quality.
As a safe, sweet solution, consider burning a soy candle instead. Like its devious waxy cousin, a soy candle typically has natural ingredients (such as essential oils) in its composition. When you light it, you’ll still have a sweet, lingering smell — but at a fraction of the danger. Another perk about a soy candle is that it will last much longer than a traditional wax candle; they burn slower!
