Natural tips for scenting every room in the house: Create your own room scent

Imagine walking from one room to another in your house and being overwhelmed by a sweet, pleasant smell that gives you a feeling of pleasant calm for a few moments.

It’s not a dream and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to achieve it! All you need is a little imagination and a few natural ingredients to create a different scent for every room in the house.

Living room
For this room, which is often larger than the others, you need a long-lasting perfume with not too intense notes and an elegant tone. That’s why we recommend you prepare a simple but effective potpourri.

It is not complicated to make at all and you can vary the ingredients according to your taste. The classics consist of rose petals, citrus peel (lemon, orange or tangerine), herbs and cinnamon sticks. All are dried thoroughly: just leave them in the sun on hot days.

Once all the ingredients are dry, place them in a bowl to place on a shelf or coffee table in the living room. If you want, you can enhance the scent of the potpourri by adding a few drops of a fragrant essential oil to the bowl.

A simple, quick, but super effective alternative is to add a few rose petals to a pot of hot water, bring to a boil for 15 minutes, allow to cool, and then store the mixture in a closed container overnight.

In the morning, add a few drops of essential fragrance oil and spray the mixture on the curtains in the living room: these will absorb the smell and distribute it throughout the room for a long time.

The kitchen
Now let’s move on to the kitchen, where the smells of food often hang in the air.

Here the perfumer that we offer you is based on sage: the leaves of this aromatic plant can not only give flavor to our dishes but also perfume our surroundings.

Simply take 3-4 leaves of this plant, place them in a pot filled with water and bring everything to a boil on the stove. A few minutes after boiling, a slightly pungent but at the same time delicate smell immediately begins to smell. At this time, turn off the flame and let the fragrant steam spread throughout the kitchen.

Sage has a strong smell that can mask even the strongest odors in prepared dishes. Additionally, you can add some clove flowers to the pan to tone down the notes a bit.

Repeat this simple process, of course with new leaves, as often as you like: the scent of sage will remain in the room for many hours, sometimes even several days.

The bathroom
The bathroom is the place in the house where it is most necessary to keep bad smells away while maintaining a delicate scent.

The most suitable perfumer is baking soda: this substance has the ability to absorb bad odors.

Simply take a small to medium bowl, fill it with 4 to 5 tablespoons of baking soda, and add 5 to 6 drops of a fragrant essential oil.

This will give you a double result: the perfumer will eliminate the stench and spread a pleasant scent. We recommend you use an essential oil with a mint scent if you like fresh scents, rose if you prefer classic and slightly romantic notes, or sandalwood if you have a preference for woody scents.

After a day of work or stress, there is nothing better than lying comfortably in bed and… breathing in the smell of the bedroom!

For this room we recommend the scent of lavender, which, according to many experts, promotes sleep, relaxation and serenity.

Simply let a few lavender flowers dry in the sun (or buy them already dried if you wish), put them in a cloth bag tied at the top and place them all around.

If you want, you can also place them in the wardrobe to perfume your clothes.
