I have a REALLY strong sense of smell. And I have two cats. And a dog. So, I am always looking for ways to make my house, my car, my boyfriend, my life – smell better!
I have 3 air purifiers – two in my living room and one in my bedroom. It makes a huge difference. Here are some other products that keep me from losing my mind.
I keep my Pacifica Island Vanilla Reed Diffuser in my kitchen, which happens to be very close to the trash can and the dog’s Pet Loo. Now instead of stinky-ness – I get to smell a lovely fruity vanilla fragrance every time I walk in to the kitchen. Much better! It’s a fairly subtle fragrance, but I do smell it every day. I also have the Pacifica Island Vanilla Soy Candle, but I find it’s not really strong enough for my stinky little world. It’s nice to have on the side table when I’m reading a book in bed, but not really hardcore enough for my living room (AKA my office). You can also buy the same scent in a perfume and body butter from Sephora.
Febreze is not cruelty free and I think it smells horrible. So, I made my own (thank you internet!). Basically, I just added some lavender essential oil to a bottle of water. I mist my bed before I go to sleep, spray it on my couch and sometimes I even spray it on my dog! You can use any combination of essential oils – tea tree oil is a great one to add an antibacterial element to your spray.
I also spray Moroccan Method Diamond Crystal Mist on my dog (and on my own hair – dry or wet – it’s refreshing!). It smells great and it has myrrh to kill germies and other stinky things. Moroccan Method makes cruelty free people and pet products. I plan to try the Pine Shale Shampoo and Creme Rinse on my dog next. I’ll keep ya posted!
While doing research for this post, I just talked myself into buying one of these bad boys. An aromatherapy oil diffuser for your car! Yes! It’s only $9.99 at Drugstore.com. I’ll let you know how I like it.
I need more ideas! How do you keep your home smelling good? Please let me know in the comments.
