Want to Keep Your Home Smelling Like Summer All Year Long?

If summer is your favorite season of the year, then you probably wouldn't mind having your home smell like summer all through the year, seeing as most people wait all year to breathe in summer's scent. Follow simple tips to keep your home smelling fresh and summery all through the year.

  1. Make a Gel Freshener Yourself. Making a gel freshener isn't hard at all. All you need are a couple essential oils like citrus and grapeseed, depending on the exact scent you want to reproduce, and some other natural ingredients in your kitchen such as gelatin, salt, and lemons; mix them, and you have an excellent freshener for your home. Check the internet for more detailed instructions and proportions.
  2. Secret Jars. It is simple to do, and the results last for even longer. Pick up some stone jars and fill them up with a mixture of baking soda and any essential oils you have around. Put them up in different corners of your house and watch the walls of your home begin to give out the scents by themselves seemingly. However, you might need to keep the jars out of sight, as they are not the most perfect decorative accessories.
  3. Use Cleaning Products with Natural Ingredients and Flavors. Don't just buy any cleaning liquid. You should go for the ones that incorporate natural elements into their contents. Many cleaning products are plant-based and infused with the scents of ingredients like citrus, cedar, and lavender. Constant use of such products for cleaning the floors, windows and even clothes will all add up to give every room in the house a distinct pleasant fruity smell.
  4. Scent of Potpourri. Add any food items with pleasant smells onto a pan. You can use apple cider, lemons, vanilla extract, etc.; they all work perfectly. Add a few cups of water to the pan and then heat very slowly over the cooker. The hot mixture will begin to give off a warm and welcoming scent for anyone that comes into the home. These work best at night as they're sure to make dinner look enticing.
  5. DIY Lavender Air Freshener. Add dried lavender leaves and baking soda into a small jar and shake the mixture thoroughly. Add drops of lavender oil too and seal, then punch a few holes into the jar cover so the scent can escape into the house.

Try out all these ideas and watch your home smell like summer all day, every day. If you need more options for essential oils, visit any apothecary shop that is close to you.

I’ve spent the last twenty years with the girl of my dreams, and we’ve been down here enjoying everything the Jax beaches have to offer together since 2005.
