Improve your home's smell with essential oils

While decorating your home, every small detail matters. For example, you don't want to forget about switch plates and plug covers, since it's tiny things like this that some people may notice when they enter your house. Another thing you don't want to neglect is the way your house smells, since this will likely be the first thing that people notice when they first walk through the door.

One way to make your space smell great is to infuse it with essential oils. Not only are these scents natural, but they each evoke different feelings in the people who breathe them in. 

Some good-smelling sprays available to purchase could actually be filled with harsh chemicals, which is why using natural, essential oils instead can be a great option. Furthermore, candles and other air-fresheners can be expensive and run out fast. Luckily, it only takes a few drops of essential oils for them to have a powerful effect on each room in your home. 

If you want people to walk into your home and feel as though it's bright and airy, consider using scents like eucalyptus, peppermint and lemon. These smells can be very calming, just like the odors of chamomile and lavender. If you prefer a more earthy, in-the-woods type of aroma, you may want to go with patchouli and myrrh. 

During the colder months, you may be feeling a little gloomy and be in search of a scent that can remind you and your guests that warmer days are on the way. Essential oils such as citrus and peppermint can help you accomplish this, so be sure to pick these up now that the holiday season is over. 

Other ways to make your home smell perfect
Reader's Digest recommended that one great, all-natural way to make your home smell great is to use rose essential oils. However, nothing beats the smell of fresh roses, so if you have a little extra cash, consider picking up a few dozen roses and place vases of them throughout your home right before having company over. 

Another thing you can try is infusing your pillows with the scents of lavender and hops. These smells may help relax you while you're setting down and going to bed: You just may fall asleep faster.
