Natural Room Scents DIY / Spice Up Your Life

DIY Natural Room Scents

Throw out all those canned room sprays and make your own natural and safe room scents using simmering waters infused with spices, herbs & fruit.

Fragrant items for naturally scenting your home:

Citrus – I’ve tried other fruits. Some of them smell good initially, but they don’t hold up for more than one use. Citrus is sturdier, longer-lasting, and gives these scent recipes freshness. Lemons and oranges are particularly fragrant and have the best staying power in these scented waters.

Herbs – Any herb can be used for making a room scent, but the ones that are sturdier and on woody twigs hold up the best. My favorites for room scents are rosemary and thyme.

Pine or Cedar Twigs/Needles — There may be other fragrant trees that will work, too; pine and cedar are the two I’ve tried for their appealing, fresh fragrance.

Extracts — A touch of vanilla or almond extract improves most room fragrance mixtures. Mint extract has a nice fresh scent.

Spices – You can use ground or whole sweet spices. The whole spices look prettier, if your scented water will be in a location where it will be seen. I have found that cinnamon sticks and whole cloves have the most scent staying power. Cinnamon sticks can be rinsed off and reused several times. –

  2. Hi there, I would like to subscribe for this weblog to take most up-to-date updates,
    so where can i do it please assist.

  3. I think what you said made a great deal of sense.
    However, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?
    I am not saying your information is not solid., but what if you added a post title that grabbed a
    person’s attention? I mean Natural Room Scents | Spirit In The Wind 2 is a little boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front
    page and watch how they create news titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
