Making your home a pleasant and comfortable space to live in is sometimes as simple as making it smell good. A nice smelling aroma can make for more productivity and can be enough to instantly put you in a great mood.  While there are many artificial air fresheners you can buy which will do the trick, there are also more natural options you can use. Here are a few for your smelling pleasure.

 

1. Scented Wood Blocks

All you need is to cut up wood blocks and lather them with scented oil of your choice. After covering them with the oil, you can put them in a closed decorative container with extra oil. Close the container and shake up the blocks and leave it overnight to absorb. Lift the lid and leave it in one of your favorite rooms in the home for instant aroma. Scented Wood Blocks

6. Baking Soda Freshener

Baking soda is a natural deodorizer that many of us already use to keep the smells to a minimum inside our fridge. Mix half a cup of baking soda with 1/4tsp essential oil in a mason jar to create your own personalized aroma. Cut a hole out of the lid of a mason jar and then fill the hole in with scrapbooking paper. Poke holes in the scrapbooking paper to allow the scent loose throughout your home.
