Household scents that help you relax

When creating a peaceful and relaxed space, homeowners need to consider all the senses. 

To add more warmth to your space, you may also use scented candles.

The visual aspect is often designed using subdued hues and natural textures while aromatherapy caters for sense of smell, which plays an important part when it comes to relaxation. 

Aromatherapy is great for bedroom and bathroom design as some scents have natural characteristics that induce restfulness and reduce stress and anxiety. 

Here’s a rundown of natural scents you can try out at home… 

Lavender relaxation

Often used in body lotions and beauty products, lavender is a relaxing scent. To introduce this fragrance in your home, opt for aromatherapy products or lavender-scented oils. 

To add more warmth to your space, you may also use scented candles. Potpourri is another great way of bringing lavender into your home and it can also add textural and visual interest to your space. 

Soothing jasmine 

The gentle smell of jasmine helps reduce anxiety. It is a charming addition to the bedroom - relaxing and soothing after a long day. 

Aside from bedroom and bath spaces, jasmine can also be used in high level stress environments such as the office. 

Cool orange scent

The fresh citrus smell of orange is another scent that can lessen feelings of anxiety. Commonly used as air fresheners in cars, the citrus smell is a great way to keep the driver calm and focused. 

Similarly, it can also be an effective instrument for keeping you cool in the office. Visually, oranges and other citrus fruits lend a bright pop of color in any space. These can look particularly charming for kitchen and dining spaces.
