How to Use Aromas To Transform Your Home

Trying to keep your home healthy is not just about filling the fridge with fresh fruits and vegetables or keeping pests out. Your home’s aroma is also key for ensuring you wake up and come back from work to a home that smells amazing. While there are many ways to achieve this, there are a few top tips that are much more effective (and easier) than others. So check out this guide on how to use aromas to transform your home. 

Fresh Flowers 

Is there anything better than coming home to a vase of fresh flowers? Probably not. Fresh flowers are a fantastic way to make your home smell better and look brighter and more inviting. The best part is that there are plenty of seasonal flowers to display depending on the time of the year, whether you prefer sunflowers over the summer or poinsettias to celebrate the holiday season. 

Fragrances and Essential Oils 

If you don’t want to deal with the constant turnover of fresh flowers (because who can afford all that?), fragrances and essential oils do just as good–if not an even better–job. You can check out fragrance oil collections to find a variety of options that can help you match the mood in your home and transform its atmosphere. These options also offer functional benefits, as essential oils and fragrances can have psychological and physiological effects that encourage calmness, creativity, and much more. 

Open The Windows 

The simplest way to make your home smell better is also the cheapest. Simply opening the windows can encourage fresh air flow and deodorise your house, which is useful if you have pets. Of course, not everyone lives somewhere they can just open the windows, especially if you live near a busy street or construction site. Still, if you are out of the way of the hustle and bustle, opening the windows can make a huge difference.

Candles and Incense 

Settling down in the evening with your favorite TV show or book is a great way to unwind after a hectic day, and lighting a scented candle or incense can make the experience even better. It’s easy to find candles on your weekly shopping trip, while incense sticks are the perfect way to celebrate finishing the cleaning. Light a candle as soon as you get home from work, and you’ll find it easier to wind down, put your feet up, and relax. 

Simmer Pots 

Cinnamon Sticks

Simmer pots are a fantastic way to explore different aromas and give your home an authentic and engrossing fragrance. They can inspire memories of your youth and give you an excuse to purchase fresh ingredients when researching what to put in a simmer pot to make your home smell amazing. Cinnamon sticks, fresh herbs, and orange or lemon rinds or slices are all perfect ingredients, especially if you’ve got company coming over soon. 


Welcoming aromas are one of the best ways to feel better about your home. These ideas can help you transform your property and make it a place you enjoy being. You’ll feel happier and healthier, and you will be eager to invite friends and relatives over for a catch-up.
