4 Things You Need To Keep Your Home Smelling Crisp

Give your haven a spa-like vibe without spending a lot


Have you ever walked into a room and you're immediately hit with a memory that you hold most dear? That's the power of scent—it may not add any visual appeal to a space, but you are aware it's there and it can change the way you perceive the vibe of a room. To help you leave a lasting impression on friends and family that enter your humble abode, we've rounded up a few things you may need to create an unforgettable ambiance. Check them out below: 

1. Herbs 

While some houseplants can purify the air or keep pests away, there are also those that can make a room smell great—and lavender is on top of that list. Reminiscent of the scent of pine trees, it has a calming and soothing aroma that's unmistakable. Keeping a pot of these blooms beside your bed can help you get a good night's sleep, too!
