Make Use of Essential Oils
Essential oils won’t just help with your springtime allergies; they’re also wonderful for bringing clean and natural scents into your space. Pick clean, natural oils in your favorite scents and see what ways you can use those oils to bring beautiful scents to your home. Stick oiled up cotton balls into air vents, set a diffuser up in the living room and bedroom, or make some candles with the oils and light them in the bathroom. You’ll reap the relaxing benefits of essential oils!
Utilize Dryer Sheets
If you have extra dryer sheets lying around, use them to cut the stench in your home. You can put dryer sheets up to the fan to spread the neutral odor throughout the room, or you can put some into the garbage bin to reduce the smell. Dryer sheets aren’t just good for the dryer!
Create Your Own Stove-Top Potpourri
Potpourri has been a go-to way to make your home smell amazing for years. The best part is, you don’t need to buy anything to reap the benefits—you can make your own stove-top potpourri. There are tons of different versions online, but one of the simplest is with a few kitchen ingredients. Cut up some orange slices, add cinnamon (ground or sticks), maybe a little nutmeg, and enjoy! There are options with lemon and lime if you prefer that citrus scent. Find your favorite and try it out!
Hit the Stinky Spots With Natural Fixes
There are some spots in the home that smell worse than others. You will need to repair your stove, refrigerator, rugs, etc—these are just a few. Luckily, you can fix those smelly spots naturally. Spread out some baking soda on the carpet and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes, and then vacuum as normal. The baking soda acts as a natural deodorizer and leaves your carpets smelling nice and clean.
Put some chopped up citrus peels into ice cube trays, and once frozen, run them through the disposal. The ice cubs will help the blades and the citrus will release clean scents into the sink. When it comes to the fridge, you can reduce smells by cleaning it out regularly and putting some cut up lemons on a shelf.
Turn on the Oven
If you need a quick fix to smells, turn on the oven! Bake cookies, put vanilla in an oven-safe dish for an hour—there are tons of options. The heat will help the scents permeate throughout the home. Try it out when you need good smells right away.
These natural ways to make your home smell better will do just the trick and make your home a relaxation and rejuvenation station. Once the pandemic has passed, make sure to reach out to Health in Hands Spa for some trigger point massages—step into a space that smells good and refuels your body!
