Hmmmmm… no, we are not going to talk about recipes here. We are going to leave them for some other time. Now, we are going to direct our attention in your interior space and your individuality. Each home has its own character and this is reflected not only in the furniture in your house, but also the scent which welcomes you once you walk in. And you are hardly dreaming of a place which smells like a fish market now, aren’t you?!?
If you have to make sure that the result is going to be impressive and you need something that really works, we could offer you the following ideas:
Use natural ingredients to clean your house
In case you didn’t know, you could use lemon juice to clean a lot of surfaces in your house. Mix baking soda and lemon juice and clean the bathroom with this mixture in order to remove remains of soap and limestone. Not only are you going to clean properly, but you are also going to fill all rooms in your house with the fresh lemon aroma.
Candles can literally work magic for you. They are a wonderful and a well-known trick for boosting the pleasant smell in your house and they also help you create a warm atmosphere and an additional feeling of cosiness. But in order to improve their efficiency, it is advisable to think strategically. Think about the most appropriate places where you might put them so that the air in the whole house could quickly start smelling pleasant.
We said that we weren’t going to talk about recipes. But we never promised to skip cooking itself as a whole. This is going to create the perfect ambience especially if you are expecting guests. The aroma of a freshly baked cake equals a stroll in heaven. And do not forget to leave the oven door open once you have finished baking. This will amplify the pleasant smell.
You could make use of the fragrance of your favourite essential oil by arranging different vessels or containers with a few drops from it in different parts of your house. Doing so, you are going to get the double pleasure of your favourite scent plus its beneficial effect on everybody in the family.
Do not forget that you house also has its own uniqueness, which needs to be highlighted. This uniqueness is boing to best stand out in your mind and that of your guests through the help of fresh and carefully selected aromas. And in this way, every time you feel this same scent, even if you are on the other side of the world, you are going to feel at home.
