*This is a collaborative post on using different scent ideas to make your home feel more relaxing*

Your home is the center of your universe and the one place you should always be able to return to at the end of a long day to cool off and find some peace. A big factor that contributes to relaxation, which is just as important as physical comfort, is the smell. By ensuring that your home is full of beautiful, delicate scents, you will create a haven for yourself where the worries of the outside world can be rolled off of your shoulders and left at the door.

To help you create this paradise at home, this article will give you three of the most gorgeous fragrances to have in your house and ingenious ways of getting them. Using these will ensure you always have a sweet, soothing aroma drifting through your entire house.

A fragrant retreat

One place in the house that always needs to be smelling fresh is your bathroom because, aside from its functionality, it is also one of the few places you can properly pamper yourself and have some alone time. In a room like this, a great way of ensuring the room is full of delight fragrance is by putting a reed infuser on a shelf, to subtly scent the room and keep it smelling pleasant.

Sweet dreams are made of these

When it comes to relaxation, the bedroom is another place where the scent is vital. Getting a good night’s sleep is difficult if things are messy and the room smells musty. The perfect scent to remedy this is, of course, the classic scent of fresh lavender. It has been proven that Lavender can naturally reduce anxiety and stress, making for a calm night of rest. It is guaranteed to help you to drift off into a deeper sleep so that you are able to wake up refreshed. Many people opt to use lavender oil when it is concentrated, but an option that is far better is growing fresh lavender on your bedroom windowsill because this means you not only get the lovely smell, but you also benefit from purer air.
