Ways to Use Essential Oils to Freshen the Home

When it comes to essential oils, a big benefit is their powerful aroma. Using that aroma around the home can leave it feeling fresh and revitalized whether you want to stay in and keep it cozy or liven your space up for guests. From your living room to the bathroom to the kitchen, essential oils can help with aromatherapy in your home.

The best essential oils to freshen the home:

  • Lavender
  • Peppermint
  • Orange
  • Lemon
  • Geranium
  • Rosemary
  • Eucalyptus
  • Bergamot
  • Pink Grapefruit
  • Cinnamon
  • Clove

How can you scent your home naturally using essential oils? There are many ways to do so.

For example, you can use an ultrasonic diffuser made specifically for spreading essential oils throughout a large area. They use vibrations from sound waves to break down essential oils into small breathable particles that scent the air. Diffusers nowadays can be wired or wireless, and some even come with Bluetooth speaker connections.

Another example of a way to scent your home is by using a reed diffuser. Reed diffusers are less strong, so they’re perfect set it and forget it additions to hallways and shelves. The oils travel through the raw wood and are released into the air.

Diffusers aren’t the only way you can use essential oils to spread freshness throughout the home, though. Homemade essential oil candles can be made with melt and pour wax base and are easy to add anywhere in the bedroom, bathroom, and more. Natural room sprays can be made with water and witch hazel or 100 proof vodka and sprayed whenever you need a spritz of fresh aroma.

If you want a less obvious way to incorporate essential oils into your home for freshness, consider adding them to your natural household cleansers. Some commercial cleaners are filled with harsh chemicals and overly obnoxious scents to mask odors. Instead try out essential oil DIY cleaner recipes for kitchens, bathrooms, wood, stone, and more. They work hard to clean away dirt and grime while leaving behind a fresh scent.
