Floristry and aromatherapy: the best scents for the home


The interior will be perceived completely differently if there is a pleasant aroma in it. It will soften the atmosphere and make the atmosphere in the room more relaxed. A home scent can make your living space more comfortable and relaxing. Since each room is intended for different tasks, the scent for each room should be selected separately.

How to choose a scent for your home

A scent that would be best for a bedroom may not be entirely appropriate in a living room or nursery. Therefore, when choosing floral scents for your home, you need to understand how the room differs in functionality and what scent suits it best in style.

Fragrance Requirements:

  • barely perceptible;
  • persistent;
  • pleasant for all residents.

It is necessary to give preference only to high-quality aromas. Cheap scents will fill the space with strong odors that will quickly become boring and can even cause mood swings and headaches. The smell should be subtle so that it does not create a strong pressure on your senses. In addition, poor quality aromas will quickly fade and will not last long.

Which scents to choose for each room

Home fragrances must be chosen as carefully as furniture or other interior details. In this case, you need to experiment and create your own combinations. In this case, it is necessary to take into account the functionality and features of the interior.

For the following rooms we recommend choosing the following scents:

  1. Hallway. In this room you can use the scents of coniferous trees. It could be cedar or pine. You can also add light aromas of tea tree or coffee.
  2. Living room. This is a room for all family members, and therefore the smells in this room should be pleasant for everyone. You can add notes of vanilla, flowers, citrus, cedarwood or lemongrass to the room. If you have guests and you are having an evening dinner in the living room, the room can be filled with the aromas of orange and lemon. You can also choose the scent of honey, sandalwood, mint, bergamot or rosemary.
  3. Kitchen. While cooking, the kitchen is filled with various smells. Therefore, you need to choose other scents for this room very carefully. Since this is a place that is associated with food, it would be important to use the smells of fruits, herbs and spices here. You can choose the scent of cinnamon, mint, cloves, lemon balm, ground coffee, citrus oil.
  4. Bedroom. This is a place where you want to relax and spend quiet time after a working day. Relaxation can be achieved with the aroma of cedar, chamomile, lavender, roses, and lemon. To create a romantic atmosphere, you can use jasmine, amber, patchouli, bergamot, ylang-ylang or mandarin.
  5. Cabinet. This is a work area, and therefore the smells here should stimulate increased mental activity. To do this, you can choose rosemary, mint, thyme, lemon or eucalyptus.
  6. Bathroom. To eliminate the odors of shampoos and other products in the bathroom, you should use strong scents of spruce or lime. In the toilet, all odors can be overcome by calamus and lemon.
  7. Children's room. For the room where children live, you need to choose the scents of lavender, tangerine or chamomile. Scents should be neutral and subtle so that they do not have a strong impact.

To distribute aromas throughout the room, you can use aroma lamps, scented candles, special sticks or an aromatic sachet.
