There’s almost nothing quite as relaxing as arriving home after a long day. Of course, the quality of your environment goes a long way in dictating just how relaxed you’ll actually feel. Cluttered surroundings and stale air won’t do much to ease your senses, but adding a delightful floral scent to your fragrance diffuser into the equation can easily change the tone of your living space and set you up for a calm and stress-free evening. Here’s how to incorporate some fresh scents into your home.
Add an Indoor Wreath
It doesn’t have to be the holiday season for you to add a wreath to your home décor! Wreaths are rustic, heavily textural pieces that double as wall art. You can easily seek out fragrant versions scented with wild rose or lavender to scent any area of your home. Indoor wreaths add a little earthy ambiance to the house and are perfect for brightening up neutral spaces that could benefit from a little pop of color.
Refresh Rugs and Carpets
After a long winter spent dragging in wet boots and muddy shoes, it’s entirely possible that your carpets and rugs have seen better days. If your flooring could use a little pick-me-up, invest in a carpet deodorizing product enhanced with a floral scent. It will easily neutralize the odors left behind by dirt and debris and scent the room with a fresh, inviting scent in your fragrance diffuser — something you’ll appreciate when visitors drop by unannounced!
Use a Fragrance Diffuser
Fragrance diffusers quickly and subtly change the tone of your rooms by adding a pretty scent to the air. The idea is that your aromas shouldn’t be overpowering at first breath. Instead, they should naturally filter through the home and bring about feelings of peace. The Flower Bouquet Collection includes three beautiful fragrances: Provence Lavender Macaron, in which the caramelized sugar, red berry, and lavender blend is warm and inviting; Pink Sakura Blossom, which pairs rice milk and raspberries with Asian cherry blossoms; and Pink Peony Corsage, which marries the incredible scent of coconut rum cocktail with suntan lotion and sea salt spray. It’s floral goodness — with a twist!
Use Some Cotton Balls
No, cotton balls on their own won’t do very much, but they’re ideal hosts for your favorite floral scented oil! It’s also a quick fix when you need to refresh your home fragrance diffuser but don’t have much time on your hands. Simply fill a small bowl with cotton balls and add a few drops of floral essential oil to them. You can place this on a bathroom vanity if you’re entertaining or want to give the air in your bedroom a little boost.
