Having a sweet smelling home not only adds to the overall ambience of the space, it can also make us feel better.

But aside from lighting scented candles (potentially dangerous if left unattended), and using fragrance gels, powders, or liquids (synthetic chemicals), here are some home fragrance options that are safe and non-toxic to use.

Reed diffuser

Essential oils in lavender, orange, patchouli, and various other fragrances are all natural and effective in scenting the home. Just add a carrier oil to dilute, pour into a slim-necked bottle, and add bamboo reed diffusers to disperse the fragrance.

Potpourri

Would you believe that this traditional, natural home scent has been used for centuries (since the 1700s!)? A bowl of potpourri is composed of dried flowers or petals, sometimes mixed with a drop of scented oil or with dried orange peels, cloves, and anise seeds.

Room spray


This handy room scent is stored in spray bottles and is mostly affordable. Choose a room spray that is made out of distilled water and all-natural fragrances and oils, and not artificial chemicals.

Electric diffuser

Essential oils are mixed into distilled water and poured into an electric essential oil diffuser, which releases a scented vapor that is said to clear the air from toxic pollutants. If you use an oil with antibacterial properties (like tea tree oil), that could help, too.

Wax melts

This is one of the newest, safest methods of scenting your home. Scentchips produces safe fragrance melt chips made out of a paraffin and soy wax blend, concentrated fragrance oils, and non-toxic vegetable dyes.


These are placed in a Scentchips Touch Warmer, which are safely heated by a quick-warming bulb, which in turn melt the Scentchips. The best part about the Touch Warmer is that they are decorative accessories as well, with various designs and finishes to match your interiors. The soft glow that emanates from the warmer adds to the ambience of your space.
