7 Ways to Scent Your Home Naturally in Winter

As winter settles in and we close our doors, turn on the heaters, and limit the fresh air flow, it's important to keep our homes smelling fresh and inviting. How can we do this, naturally?

Here are the top seven ways to scent your home naturally during winter, ensuring a healthy and cosy environment.

1. Natural Room Sprays

One of the easiest and most effective ways to scent your home is by using 100% natural room sprays. These sprays are crafted with pure essential oils and plant-based ingredients, providing an instant burst of fragrance without any harmful chemicals. Simply spritz your favourite scent around the room, on linens, or upholstery to create a refreshing ambiance.

3. Simmering Potpourri

Create your own simmering potpourri using ingredients from your kitchen. Combine water, citrus peels, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and star anise in a pot and let it simmer on the stove. This mixture will release a warm, spicy aroma throughout your home.

4. Essential Oil Diffusers

Essential oil diffusers are a great way to disperse natural fragrances throughout your home. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil blend to the diffuser, and let it work its magic. Popular winter scents include vetiver, cedarwood, and frankincense.

5. Scented Pine Cones

Collect pine cones and enhance their natural aroma with a few drops of essential oil. Arrange them in a decorative bowl or basket for a rustic, fragrant display. This is a simple and aesthetically pleasing way to add a natural scent to your home.

6. Baking Spices

Utilise the power of baking spices like nutmeg, ginger, and cardamom. Sprinkle them onto a baking sheet and heat them in the oven at a low temperature. The warmth of the oven will release the rich, spicy aromas, making your kitchen smell like a winter bakery.

7. DIY Herbal Sachets

Create herbal sachets using dried lavender, rosemary, and thyme. Place these sachets in drawers, closets, or even under pillows. The herbs release a subtle fragrance that freshens up enclosed spaces and adds a natural aroma to your home.
