Make Your Home Smell Great With DIY Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy uses plant and aromatic essential oils to improve your mental and physical well-being. It is simple to make and can help your save money by making your own.
You can also make your own natural fragrance to make your home smell fresh and inviting. No matter how convenient air fresheners from the supermarket are, they might contain chemicals and they can be an irritant to people with sinus problems.
You can add fragrance to your home using simmering waters infused with spices, herbs, and fruits. Just take a look at what is in your home or in your refrigerator.
Here are some common ingredients you can use or mix and use to create an amazing fragrance for your home.
- Citrus or Lemon or Orange
- Ginger, fresh or powdered
- Herbs such as Rosemary
- Spices such as Cinnamon and Star Anise
- Vanilla extract
I tend to use lemons, cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Put all the ingredients into a pot, add 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. It will immediately make your home smell wonderful.
Mash up the ingredients in the pot, add more water if you desire. Keep the stove on and the fragrance will make you home smell warm and inviting.
You can also put some of the scented water into a essential oil burner and light them wherever you want. Store the excess in a glass jar in your fridge. It will keep for a few days. Just warm it up whenever you want to use it.
