Aromatize your home with these amazing ideas

A beautifully fragranced home gives you a divine feeling. Personally, I am very fond of it. It adds beauty to a home and gives a feeling of positivity and calmness. An aromatized home not only makes one feel happy and cozy but also lightens your mood, and leaves an amazing impression on your guests.

So, here are some easy and pocket-friendly ways to make your home smell good:

    • Take a glass bottle and add about 2-3 tbsp of coconut oil to it. Now add a few drops of essential oil, and place few reeds in it. Check the fragrance to see if it’s perfect for you. If not, add a few more drops to get it right. You can use a transparent glass bottle to make it look beautiful. Use of coconut oil is recommended as it is thin and clear. If you want to use any other oil as the base, choose an oil that is thin, odourless, and preferably colourless.
    • Place Orange Slices and Cinnamon Sticks in a pot and add enough water to cover the ingredients. Simmer it on a low flame. This will make your kitchen smell amazing. After it has simmered for some time, pour this concoction is an open jar, leave it on the table, and let the amazing fragrance spread.
    • Fill half a bottle with water, add 1-2 tsp of Vodka, and a few drops of Essential Oil like Ginger, Lilly, Mandarin, or Lemon as per your liking. Shake it well to combine all the ingredients. Now place this in different corners of your house in small pots to give out a nice fragrance. If you like to use different fragrances, you can prepare the solutions, store them in different bottles, and label them. Use of Vodka is recommended, as these oils mix well with it, and the fragrance lasts longer.
    • If you are not sure about oil, you can use rice as a base. Take half a cup of rice, add about 15-20 drops of Essential Oil, and mix it well. Put this in a fancy bowl, and add a couple of flowers to it. You can use red rice/black rice to make it look even more appealing.
    • Take 3 cups of lukewarm water, 1 tbsp baking soda, 3 tbsp fabric softener, mix them all and use it as a spray to get a beautiful smelling home.
    • If you are extremely short of time, you can just take a cotton ball and add a few drops of essential oil to it and leave it in an open bowl and make your place smell amazing. You can add some dried flowers to it to give it a beautiful look.
