If you have ever been to a spa, you will know that they always smell amazing, and that the aromas of the spa space can really help you to relax and enjoy yourself. So, wouldn’t it be amazing if you could recreate that spa smell in your own home?
The good news is, you can. Here’s how:
Keep your home clean and tidy
A clean and tidy home can help to create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere that is at least smell-neutral, giving you a base to build upon. So, regularly cleaning and decluttering your home, and hiring an exterminator to deal with pests when you need to, can help to keep the air fresh and free of unwanted odors.
Use essential oils
Essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint can provide a soothing and refreshing aroma that will help you to relax and unwind. You can use essential oils in an oil diffuser, add them to your bathwater, or use them in a homemade room spray.
Lighting candles can be a great way to create a spa-like atmosphere in your home. Candles that are scented with essential oils or other natural fragrances can be especially effective. You can use candles in the living room, bedroom, or bathroom to create a relaxing ambiance and a subtle spa smell.
Plants such as lavender, jasmine, and gardenia can provide a soothing scent that can help your home feel more like a spa in no time at all. Not only do they freshen the air and add a natural aesthetic, but plants also have many health benefits, including stress reduction and increased happiness.
Use a diffuser
A diffuser can be a great way to disperse essential oils throughout your home, creating a pleasant aroma. It can be plugged in your living room, bedroom or bathroom, and you can choose from a variety of essential oils such as sweet orange, lemongrass and lavender, to create the perfect scent for your space.
Make your own room spray
You can make your own room spray by mixing essential oils and water, with a little alcohol, in a spray bottle. Try experimenting with different combinations of oils to create your own custom scent. You can use this spray in any room of your home to freshen the air and create a spa-like atmosphere.
Use natural potpourri
Natural potpourri can be a great way to add a floral spa aroma to your home. You can use dried flowers, herbs, and spices to create a natural potpourri that can be placed in bowls or sachets around your home.
Make your own scented sachets
You can make your own scented sachets by filling small fabric bags with dried flowers, herbs, and spices. These sachets can be placed in drawers, closets, or hung in your home to add a nice aroma to your space that makes it feel more like a fancy spa.
As you can see, there are lots of things you can do to make your home smell more like a spa, and doing so will not only make your home more inviting, but it will also help you to relax and unwind more easily too. So, what are you waiting for?
