Aside from the familiar sight of the gate or the living room, a multitude of smells also welcome us home at the end of each day. It can be a mix of the aroma of the last meal cooked in the kitchen, a perfume used by one of your housemates, and the stench of smoke coming from the outside.

While all these can be associated with the feeling of being in our safe space, it would be nice to be greeted by sweet scents and revitalizing fragrances for a change. After all, who wouldn’t want to be welcomed by the smell of chocolate wafting from the kitchen? Or a refreshing citronella surprise emanating from the dining room? Lucky for us, we can instantly give the home a whiff upgrade with Zen Zest’s Home & Aromatherapy Collection. Banish bad odors and build your own delightful arsenal with these must-haves:

Room Sprays and Home Deodorizers

A lovely smell can instantly make us feel at ease and relaxed. Get rid of funky odors from cigarettes and mildew with room sprays that help set the mood at home.

The Anti-Tobacco Spray features a mixture of cedarwood, bergamot, and pine that clears the air and allows you to take in the refreshing smell.

Troubled that mosquitoes are slowly taking over the dark corners in your house? Feel safe and protected with a few spritz of the Anti-Mosquito Spray. It has citronella, lemongrass, and eucalyptus that will help keep pesky pests away.

Can't seem to mask the smell of fish and meat in the kitchen? Worry no more as the Kitchen Fragrance must-have can immediately solve the problem with its choco cappuccino scent. Trust us, with this spray within your reach, guests would think you're baking all day.

How many times have you opened a cabinet only to be greeted by a kulob smell? With the Cabinet Deodorizer, you can turn kulob into fresh and summery as it has the scents of peony, iris, and fiesta blossoms.
