Holiday party time is coming up, and let’s face it, we don’t want to be paranoid about what our home smells like. From all of the cooking and messes made throughout the year, it’s likely there are a whole lot of smells going on that we may not like. Perhaps the air in your home is even just stale and not ready for a cozy get together. If these are legit concerns of yours (like they are for me), then try out these smell hacks. You seriously won’t regret it!
8 Holiday Smell Hacks
Cinnamon Honey Beeswax Candles
The great thing about using beeswax candles is that not only are you adding a nice scent to your home, you’re also cleaning the air.
Rosemary and Lavender Carpet Powder
One thing that is often overlooked is the carpets, and man do they need some special attention. If you are short on time, just use baking soda and let it sit on the carpet for 15 minutes before vacuuming. If you want to go the extra mile, try this recipe. Make sure to use holiday scented essential oils!
French Vanilla Coffee Candles
There aren’t many things that smell more comforting than fresh coffee. If you are looking for a nice and natural candle recipe, then you might find this one to your liking. Be ready for your home to smell like a dessert Heaven!
What makes this DIY so awesome is that it doubles as a decoration piece and a house freshener.
Now this one is important if you’ve got guests staying at your home for the holidays. Give them a spa like experience on the cheap by placing some eucalyptus in the bathroom. As the steam heats up the bathroom, a gorgeous aroma will fill the room.
Stove Top Potpourri
I find this to be one of the most potent and quick ways to get your home smelling intoxicating, because it smells like good cooking. However, be sure to follow the directions from Half Baked Harvest!
If you don’t have the time to go to specialty stores to get all kinds of ingredients, then try using this simple hack from The Krazy Coupon Lady that only requires a pan and vanilla extract.
Use Those Vents
To ensure your scent of choice gets all around the house, clip fresheners to your vents. Be sure to keep the Christmas scents consistent though to not overwhelm your guests!
There are so many great smell hacks for getting your home to smell amazing this holiday season. If you want year round smell hacks then try these helpful tips using essential oils.
