Great things can happen in rooms that smell nice. It’s a small check for good mood and a subtle dopamine dose. It’s worth it to make sure your surroundings instill good feelings and making your room smell good is one of them. Here are some sustainable and eco-friendly ways to make your room smell good.
Add nice smells sustainably using essential oils
Essential oils are a natural and sustainable way to add fragrance to your room. How to use essential oils for a subtle nice fragrance in a room?
An ultrasonic diffuser works by using electronic frequencies to create ultrasonic vibrations in a small disk under the surface of the water, which breaks up the essential oil into tiny micro particles. The fine mist of essential oil and water is then dispersed into the air.
A reed diffuser is a type of fragrance diffuser that uses reeds or sticks to disperse essential oils into the air. It consists of a bottle or jar filled with a mixture of essential oils and a carrier oil, such as jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The reeds or sticks are placed into the bottle or jar, and the essential oils are absorbed up the reeds and released into the air. Reed diffusers are the most sustainable alternative to candles and ultrasonic diffusers
Pro tip: You can also add a few tablespoons of vodka or witch hazel in your oil and water diffuser mix to help the scent last longer.
Make a potpourri
You can make a potpourri by combining your favorite dried flowers or herbs and essential oils in a bowl or jar. Before this mixture becomes usable enough to distribute smell, you’ll need to let the mixture sit for a few hours or overnight to allow the essential oils to fully infuse the dried flowers or herbs.
Refresh the potpourri as needed by adding a few more drops of essential oil or fresh dried flowers or herbs.
Don’t let bad smells build up
Open windows to let the fresh air into your room and improve ventilation remove any unpleasant odors.
Add some purifying houseplants
Certain houseplants, such as lavender, jasmine, and peppermint, can help to purify the air and add a pleasant scent to your room.
Regularly clean sources of bad odor
If you are too lazy to clean your place regularly, you can take care of just these couple of things that contribute mostly to bad odor build-up. These sources commonly include – toilet bowl, bathroom sink, kitchen sink, and dustbin.
