Creating Scents For Your Home Is An Art Too!

It's nice to come home from a stressful day of work, and then you forgot how tired you were when your scents greet you at the door. This might not work for some, but most people love it...I guess it just depends on how you choose your scents for your home.

So, what's the trick in choosing home scents that you would not end up over doing it?

Choose the type you prefer better. Most commonly used nowadays are scented candles, or sprays. I would prefer candles, as sprays sometimes can irritate the nose when you tend to overspray an area.

Scented candles release the most fragrance and ideally used for filling large areas in your home. For instance, if your area is wide, it would be nice pairing opposite scents. A good example of this would be pairing a dark, spicy black tea scent with jasmine.
You can control a subtle scent of the candle by either burning it for a short time, or setting it out unlit. So, you can control the strength of the scent by how often you flip the sticks of the candle.

Sprays are good to use in a kitchen after cooking, while potpourri is more subtle and ideal to use in smaller spaces.

Beware of those sometimes annoying aromas. Choose a good quality and quantity of essential oils and waxes. For instance, a gardenia room spray would be good which has large amount of natural essence.

Choose scents for your kitchen such as fresh and green to avoid competing with the food. Ideal examples to choose from would be fig, basil, mint and bergamot.

For bedrooms, you might want to consider spicy and romantic scents, or relaxing lavender.
