There are almost no cons to growing herbs at home—it's a fun hobby, it cuts a portion of your grocery shopping budget, and it can lower carbon dioxide indoors naturally. 

While some houseplants can purify the air or keep pests away, there are also those that can make a room smell crisp and clean all day long. To help you decide which ones you want to display on your windowsill, we've rounded up four herbs that give off one-of-a-kind aromas.

Jasmine

If you are fond of sweet and sugary scents, Jasmine might just be what you're looking for. Aside from making your home smell amazing, it can also put your mind at ease as it promotes feelings of relaxation especially during cooler weather.

Lavender 

Reminiscent of the scent of pine trees, nothing is quite as calming and soothing as lavender. For those who are having difficulty dozing off at night, keeping a planter of these blooms beside your bed can help you get a good night's sleep.

Geranium

These are a popular choice amongst homeowners as they tend to smell like roses—it has a gentle aroma and does a great job of cleaning the air, too! Geraniums are also perfect for adding color in a lackluster space.

Honeysuckle

Otherwise known as Woodbine, this charming herb smells the same as its namesake—honey. It's a semi-parasitic plant that can keep bad odors from seeping into your home making it a safe choice for spaces where you store footwear.
