What Type Of Fragrance Should You Scent Your Home With?

Do you love the smell of washed linen and freshly baked cookies? Or maybe you prefer something more exotic and mysterious like an orchid and sandalwood. Smells play a massive role in how comfortable you feel somewhere. And whether it’s at home or work, we are constantly surrounded by them. 

That’s why home fragrance is so important. And so on-trend. It’s a way to bring scents we love into our homes, make them feel like ours, and make them more pleasant to be in.

Candles are a classic way to scent your home. Not only do they make your home smell incredible, but they’re also the perfect way to create the feeling of pure relaxation. Because of this, some of the best places to use scented candles are in small spaces like bathrooms or bedrooms. A decorative candle will enhance the atmosphere of any room, but they’re great for places we associate with relaxation. To make your candles last even longer, trim the wick before each use.

Candles can make your home smell amazing, but they have a few downsides. First, the fragrance can take a little while to fill your home. And you’ll need to look after them if you want to squeeze every last bit of use out of them. Second, candles tend to create a lot of soot and dust – not ideal for those with allergies or asthma. Finally, candles are a fire hazard and should be used cautiously in homes with children or pets.

Reed Diffusers

Reed diffusers are great for scenting larger spaces. They’re a convenient and inexpensive way to scent your home. And as long as you remember to flip the reeds once a week, the fragrance will fill your home for weeks on end. Plus, there are no hazards associated with them. You can happily leave them unattended without worrying that they’ve set your curtains alight.

Much like candles, the fragrance from reed diffusers will take a little while to be released into the air. We recommend using an oil-based fragrance, not a spray or plug-in that uses water. Oil-based fragrances will give you the best result for long-lasting, strong scents. Make sure to follow the instructions on your diffuser to get the best results.

Room Sprays

Just like diffusers, room sprays are great for scenting larger spaces. They are also a very inexpensive way to make your home smell amazing. Sprays are convenient, easy to use, and don’t produce soot or dust. And you can use them whenever you want to boost the scent in your home. Couple this with a diffuser or candle, and you’ve got a fragrance duo friends will be envious of.

There are a lot of fragrances to choose from when it comes to room sprays. Use this fragrance finder quiz to find out the perfect scent. Room sprays typically have a much higher concentration of fragrance than other ways of scenting your home, so make sure you really like the smell before committing.

Aromatherapy oils are great for scenting your home. They are also a very inexpensive way to freshen up your space. Of course, you’ll need to purchase a diffuser that holds the oils and will disperse them into the air, but it’ll be worth it. And there are many benefits to using essential oils around your home. They can improve your mood, reduce stress and even improve air quality.

Aromatherapy oils are very concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle when choosing a scent. Also, when choosing an oil, be sure to look for one that is labeled as non-toxic.

In conclusion

Fragrance can evoke many different emotions. But no matter what scent you choose, it provides many benefits to your home. It can make your space seem cleaner and more inviting, and it can even help you reduce stress. With all the different ways you can scent your home, the choice is yours. So which one will you choose?
