After the long cross country moving process, you'll love walking through the front door of your new home if you're greeted with fresh and stimulating scents. Ditch the synthetic chemicals and stick to an all-natural solution with these three methods for infusing natural aromas into your abode.
House plants are aesthetically appealing and they give off great smells. TLC recommends Sweet Asylum, which comes in tiny white-petaled clusters with yellow in the middle and has a pungent scent that's sure to permeate your home. It's also extremely easy to grow and the neutral tones will go well with whatever color scheme you choose.
Another strongly fragranced flower that the source recommends is Sweet Pea. These plants range from yellow to pink to white and the flowers blossom to be about 2 inches wide. If you live in a cooler climate, they'll survive just fine, but they don't do as well in the harsh summer heat.
After you peel that orange or clementine, don't throw away the skin. Instead, Care2.com notes that you can put them in boiling water on the stove to create a fresh aroma in your kitchen or add them to your vacuum bag for a pleasant scent while you clean.
Go to your local herbalist or health food store and buy some essential oils. Care2.com suggests diluting them with water and using them as a natural spray for your home. Your living room will smell terrific with a hint of lavender or sandalwood in the air.
