Have you ever noticed how much better you feel when you smell something pleasant? It’s just so relaxing and makes everything else better! There are a lot of things you can do to get your home smelling nice, but using essential oils and herbs are my favorite!
There are just so many benefits to using 100% natural ingredients. That includes tons of health benefits! But I know not everyone is a DIY kind of person so I added a couple of products you can buy from the store and use in a unique way to get your home smelling amazing! You’re sure to love these 9 creative and cheap ways to make your home smell heavenly!
1. Clip a car freshener to your home’s vent
These little clips are such a simple way to make your car smell great, so why not your home too? Everything else on this list takes a tad bit of work but all this requires is a few dollars and maybe 30 seconds of your time to clip it into your home vent!

3. Add essential oils to a bowl of rice
This trick literally only takes two minutes to put together! The rice is great for absorbing the oils and slowly dispersing them so your home smells heavenly for a long time!

I don’t know about you, but I would never have thought about mixing spices with coconut oil to put on a wax warmer. This gives me so many more ideas but I also really like this combination too!
5. Simmering potpourri
Simmering potpourri on the stove has been something I would see so many of my family members do, especially for the holidays. These recipes give you some awesome options depending on the mood you are in!

7. You don’t have to make coffee to have your house smelling like it
I know a lot of people that love the smell of coffee but hate drinking it. This is just right if that’s you! And there’s nothing wrong with drinking it AND having your house smell like coffee even when the pots off.
8. “Paint” essential oils on wood
This is such a creative idea! We’ve all seen the car fresheners at the store, but why not make your own. Plus, you know it’s chemical free! You could hang these anywhere in your house too.
