Have you ever had someone walk into your house and say, “Wow, it smells weird in here”? Well, there’s a high chance that you have, because your house will always smell of something. It might be the lovely smell of freshly baked brownies, or it may be the smell of wet dog. It might be the smell of the takeout you’ve just ordered, or it may be the smell of your baby’s dirty diaper. Yep, your house will smell both good and bad, but there are a few ways to make it smell amazing more often than not…
Getting all flowery
Let’s be honest, we would fill all of our rooms with flowers if we could – but we’d be a little worried there would be none left for the bees to enjoy. Nevertheless, buying a bunch of flowers or picking a few from your garden is one of the easiest natural ways to make your house smell amazing, because they just kinda sit there, look pretty, and do their thing! According to florists and smelly experts (you know what we mean), the best flowers and trees to have in your house are peace lilies, orchids, and palm trees, as these do their best to purify the air around them.
Pine cones fine cones
If you want to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to the aesthetics of your house, you might want to invest in some pine cones, because they are now all of the rage. In fact, you should really call them ‘Fine Cones’! You’re welcome. However, it seems these pine cones do a lot more than look pretty awesome in a wicker basket. If you add a few drops of essential oils of your choice onto these cones, they will act as your very own natural room perfume. The best part? They will last for months!
The importance of H2O
Although we all know that drinking water is the key to survival and all that important stuff, water can also help your home transition from ‘eugh’ to ‘omg’ within just a few minutes. For this little trick, you will need a pot of boiling water, cinnamon sticks, and a few orange slices. As the water cools and the other ingredients make their way into the water, they will let off an indulgent smell that will remind you of sunshine, rainbows, and Christmas. Sadly, this scent won’t last very long.
Get your DIY spray on
Many people believe that you have to shell out a small fortune to make your house smell amazing, but that doesn’t have to be the case. You can ditch store-bought fabric sprays and create your own! This process cuts out all kinds of chemicals and focuses on natural ingredients, and leaves your house smelling as fresh as a daisy. All you need is a spray water bottle filled with water, baking soda, and the essential oil of your choice. Mix the whole thing up a bit, spray, and let the magic happen.
Cleanse your garbage disposal
We all need a good cleanse every now and then, and your garbage disposal is no different. In fact, this trash chute is normally one of the main contributors to the funky smell in your house – so it’s important to keep it fresh all of the time. One of the best ways to do this naturally is to grab yourself an ice cube tray, white wine vinegar, and small slices of lemon. Fill the tray up with the vinegar and lemon mix, and let it freeze. Once you’ve done, let the cube meet the disposal!
