Scents have the power to elevate any space and create a comfy, cozy ambiance that you can enjoy any time of the day.
Each room can have its own signature house scent. For instance, energizing citrus is perfect for your living room/lounge area. The best bedroom scents are lavender and chamomile. For the bathroom, you should choose fresh mint and eucalyptus, and for the hallway, an inviting blend of your favorite aroma oils.
You can also use scents to celebrate the seasons. Cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, and pinecones will make your home smell like Christmas and baked goods. Pumpkin pie, ginger, bergamot, and spices will bring the fall season inside your home.
Read on to learn how to choose the best home scent for you and make your entire house smell wonderful.
Consider the Aroma Oil Ingredients
Even though a great smell is a deciding factor when buying aroma oils, you should pay special attention to the product ingredients. The more natural it is, the better for your health and wellbeing.
Most commercial aroma oils may contain tons of chemicals that can be harmful to you and your pets. You should also be careful with using natural oils as well as they’re more concentrated and can be stronger than you can tolerate.
Think About Your Pets
Most commercial aroma oil blends contain chemicals that can be irritating or toxic to your furry friends. If you have a dog, you know they have a heightened sense of smell and even the faintest scent can be harmful. Cats can develop severe allergies as a result of low-quality aroma oils in the home, so always look for pet-friendly scents.
Some of the most dangerous home fragrance oils for pets include tea tree oil, peppermint and eucalyptus oil, citrus, and ylang-ylang, even the more natural alternatives.
Use the Right Diffuser
There are hundreds of different diffusers on the market but before you buy a diffuser, know that they’re not all created the same. You’ll find cheap reed diffusers and ultrasonic diffusers but the best quality diffusers are those using nebulizing or cold-air diffusion technology like AromaTech.
These technologies maintain the quality of the aroma oil by using the air from your room to diffuse the fragrance. Cold air diffusers don’t use evaporation, heat, or dilution of the oils, which means they use less oil.
This way, your room will smell wonderful for longer periods of time and you can enjoy your favorite oil blends day in and day out.
