3 Non-Chemical Fragrances for Your Home


Commercially-sold air fresheners often come across too strong -- they smell artificial and are rarely chosen for long-term use. The chemicals in them may also cause allergic reactions. 

For healthier and more eco-friendly options, here are three non-chemical fragrances that can spice up your home just right:

Sampaguita
Sampaguitas (jasmines) have a mild quality surrounding their scent. It doesn’t overpower despite overuse, and it’s a simple yet classic fragrance that can lend elegance to any home. Garlands of sampaguita are also available for very cheap. Hang them by the window or over your air-conditioner for the full effect.

Chamomile
It’s a popular flavor of tea. Likewise, as an all-natural air freshener, chamomile can calm the senses and soothe the nerves. Its scent provides a subtle yet distinct charm. To infuse your home in this calming fragrance, place a pot of chamomile flowers near sources of air like the window, or use chamomile oil in a spritzer or a simple bamboo diffuser.

Sandalwood
Then again, there are places in the home that require a stronger aroma without the pungent chemical quality of commercial fragrances. For example, the musty smell in your bathroom can be overpowered by simply using sandalwood essential oil. Its masculine flavor is perfect for masking odors or unwanted smells, and it’s a sure pick for the bachelor pad as well. Use a few drops of the oil in a bowl of water and place it on a table; you can also use the oil in a spritzer or a diffuser.
