How To Use Scents Around Your Home

There are lots of ways you can use scents around your home. It’s worth taking the time to understand them so you know which options to choose for which situations. With that in mind, here is a quick guide to your main options courtesy of Aroma Shop.

Many people don't realize that you can use scents around the home to improve your mood. Whether it be through essential oils, candles, or even potpourri there are many ways to make your home smell good!

How To Use Scents Around Your Home

Does your home smell welcoming? Do you want to make it feel like a spa in the comfort of your own space? Scents can be used around the home to create an environment that is restful and relaxing. Follow these tips to use scents in your home.

1. Reed diffusers

Reed diffusers work on the same basis as straws. They suck up the fragrance from the container. Once the fragrance reaches the top of the reed, it’s released into the air. Flipping the reeds every two or three days keeps the fragrance fresh.

Use reed diffusers in places where you want a passive background scent. In principle, this could be anywhere in your home. In practice, reed diffusers tend to be used most in hallways, kitchens, and bathrooms. They give long-term air freshening against odors and a welcoming feel to people entering the home.

2. Heated oil diffusers

These heated oil diffusers use candles to heat a bowl of scented oil. The gentle heat is enough to make the essential oils evaporate and hence scent the area. These traditional diffuser types are still very popular.

Realistically, however, their popularity is largely based on their nostalgia and coziness. They are often beautiful when lit (and sometimes even when not). Sadly, however, they’re not very practical. Firstly, there’s the naked flame. Secondly, there’s the fact that they only scent a very small area.

If you like the idea of a traditional diffuser, the best place for it is usually on a desk or vanity. These are small spaces and generally fairly private. This means that the diffuser is less likely to get knocked over, and you can keep an eye on the flame while you work or get ready.

3. Electric diffusers

Electric diffusers are generally operated by batteries or through plug-in, and a few do both. They started out as niche alternatives to traditional diffusers. Now, however, they are by far the more popular option and for many good reasons.

Most of these good reasons hinge on the fact that electric diffusers now look attractive and are also much more practical than their traditional counterparts. Firstly, you don’t have to worry about a naked flame.

Secondly, any electric diffuser will be much more controllable than any traditional diffuser. It will also be able to scent a larger area if desired.

You can use electric diffusers wherever you want. For maximum flexibility, choose one which can work off battery power. You might also want to consider looking at an electric diffuser with remote control.

4. Scented Candles

Many use scented candles to improve the smell of the home but electric diffusers tend to be better. With electric diffusers, you choose your essential oil whenever you use them. With scented candles, the fragrance is added when they are made and it always stays the same. Plus, with scented candles you have an open flame that require extra caution.

5. Aromatherapy Scented Items

You can choose to apply essential oils directly to items or make DIY products for use around your home. You may find it best to buy personal-care products with essential oils rather than trying to make them yourself if you prefer.

It’s generally safe to put essential oils onto fabrics which you can then use to scent enclosed spaces like drawers. Be aware, however, that essential oils can stain textiles. It’s, therefore, best to keep them off fabrics which are on display, like clothes.
