An essential oil diffuser is really easy to use – all you should do is to fill it with water, add a few drops of essential oil in it, and turn it on. The diffuser will then create a fine mist that will carry the beautiful scent of those essential oils throughout your house, making your place smell really nice and pleasant. I bought two of these Cool Mist Air Fresheners, one for my office and one as a gift for my daughter, we both love it!

Fabric spray

Another quick way to deal with smells in your house is fabric spray which, truth be told, won’t eliminate them completely, but it’ll cover them up for some time. Essential oils are a good way to go – just pour some water in a small spray bottle, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, and a bit of baking soda, and voilà – your fabric refreshing spray is all done!

Gel air fresheners

Crafting some scented gel air fresheners is another way of putting essential oils to good use, and what’s even better about them is the fact that they’re really easy to make. You can customize your favourite scents, use some cool colours, and even add decorative items like dry flowers or shells – possibilities are truly infinite, but they’ll definitely make your home smell really nicely! You can also purchase ready-made gel air fresheners made with essential oils like this energizing citrus scent >> Smells Be Gone!

Scented cleaning vinegar

Getting rid of some hideous smells in your home should start by eliminating their source, instead of just covering them up. That’s why you should use a cleaner that leaves a fresh scent behind. Even though you’ll probably frown at vinegar-based cleaners, knowing that this ingredient doesn’t smell really nice, the fact is that it will eliminate all those bad smells – especially when paired with citrus fruits. Don’t wait any longer and give it a try!

Plants are very well-known for their air purifying characteristics, and you should definitely get some if you still haven’t. Some people say that orchids and palm trees are the best when it comes to purifying the air, but if you think these won’t be enough for your home, you should certainly get the best air purifier for mould. Opt for the one that features HEPA filters that can rid the air of mould spores and improve your home environment in the blink of an eye!

Scented wax cubes are another way of making your home smell beautifully, and one of the best things about them is that they can spread an amazing scent all over your house.

Garbage disposal cubes

Your garbage bin is surely the biggest source of some strange food smells that are likely to spread all over your house whenever you open it, but don’t worry – there are ways to clean it properly. You can make some frozen disposal cleaning cubes using citrus and white vinegar. These will make a huge difference, so give them a try as soon as possible.

  1. I love that you included natural ideas in addition to pre-made products. As someone who is very sensitive to fragrance, I really appreciated this extra thought.

  2. Great tips for anyone looking to spruce up their home with some good-smelling scents! I feel like my own home has gotten so stale lately, given the summer heat (which just won’t go away!) Thanks for including natural solutions as well.

    • I love lavender essential oil in the bedroom and lately in the main rooms and bathrooms, I have been crushing on a mix of pink grapefruit with hints of strawberry and citrus.

  3. I loved these tips . I would love to get a diffuser and I love the idea of scented cleaning vinegar as some cleaning products are just so overpowering and full of chemicals . I have never heard of disposable garbage cubes that is an excellent idea 🙂 No one wants a smelly kitchen 🙂

    • Hi Bailey, I like Spider plants, and Dracaena because they are darn near impossible to kill and I do not have a green thumb. I wouldn’t recommend Dracaena if you have pets though as it can be poisonous.

  4. We have several diffusers and a ton of essential oils at our house- it’s definitely our favorite way to keep the house smelling nice. Love all of your suggestions.

  5. Yes! Love this, i’m so obsessed with making my home smell like autumn right now. Even though we won’t see autumn in Florida for a long time! Love wax melts, they are probably my favorite but I definitely need to check out the garbage disposal idea! Thanks! -Erika-

  6. There’s something SO AMAZING about a heavenly scented home. We use our diffuser regularly, but you’ve inspired me to pick up a houseplant or two!

  7. I love oil diffusers! I also use little wall-plugins too. Essential oils are my favourite for using in the home, especially lavender.

    • Hi Cathy, thank you for your kind words! Be sure to enter for the draw I am hosting, you can win $200 worth of Arbonne natural skin care products.

  8. I totally needed this. I have 5 dogs and the house can smell. Not that bad, but not good either. With these suggestions, I could start being more mindful of keeping the house smelling nice. 🙂

    I love it when my house smells good. Since I don’t have time to bake on a daily (or even weekly) basis, I sometimes simmer some water and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice on the stove just to get that great aroma. I love the hint about making disposal cubes out of citrus and vinegar–I’m going to have to try it soon.

  10. I’ve been researching air purifying plants lately. I have a small apartment and a Pug, so my goal is that people do not know there is a dog in the apartment when they enter until she is visible! I don’t like when you can smell a pet before you see a pet.

  11. Thanks for these suggestions. I always like good smelling scents throughout my home. I didn’t know about Plant purifiers – how wonderful!

  12. These are great ideas Lisa! I’ve been wanting to make my own fabric spray for awhile now. I haven’t thought of using vinegar as a base, so I’ll have to give that a try.

  13. I am a diffuser and wax melts girl. I used to burn candles in my previous home but when we moved I was shocked at the discoloration left on the walls behind my art work, I guess I never thought about how much soot and smoke was going into to the air with that scent.
