Basil clears the mind of worries, helps you focus and concentrate, and uplifts the mood of people who suffer from depression, insomnia, and stress. Mix four tablespoons of dried basil with lemon essential oils to create a calming smell in the bathroom.
Chamomile relaxes and relieves anxiety, tension, and insomnia. This is good for hyperactive children, the frail, and the elderly. Mix chamomile with baking soda to give your room a refreshing smell.
Eucalyptus is a great essential oil that clears the head and calms emotions. Craft your deodorizing spray by mixing distilled water, baking soda, and eucalyptus oil.
Create your own potpourri by mixing dried flowers and plants and scented oil then placing them in sachets. If you want to use them as centerpieces, it is always best to arrange them in layers.
Baking soda serves as a good deodorizer for your bathroom. Just mix a half cup of baking soda with a half cup of water and a drop of essential oil to create your solution.
RL Tip: Display your homemade fragrance in mason jars!

Frankincense and myrrh are not the only scents; some companies have them in fruits, florals, and even candy. Incense gives the room a very Asian atmosphere, so light them up during meditation or to simply fill your room with a calming scent.
