  • The Importance of Home Fragrances During Christmas

    For many of us, the true meaning of Christmas is not about what we receive or even what we give. It is about the people that we share the holidays with. For some, that could be family and friends, for others, it could be coworkers, clients and vendors. But no matter who you spend most of your time with during the holidays, it is important to make that time as special as possible.

    From the gifts we give, to the cards we write, the holidays become even more special when we put some thought into everything we do. That can even include our home décor and table settings when we invite those we care about over for a meal. Our home is a representation of us and it becomes part of who we are. The way it looks, the way it makes people feel, even the way it smells can say a lot about you.

    Home Fragrances are More Inviting

    Once you have your home decorated for the holiday and you make it warm and inviting, you should take a quick sniff and see how it smells. Does it smell like musty Christmas ornaments that have been in storage for the past year, or does it smell like whatever you have baking in the oven? Deciding on a holiday fragrance for your home is as important as the decorations you hang and the tinsel on the tree. Choose a home fragrance that is seasonal and your home will seem that much more cozy and inviting and the smells will bring about memories of Christmas’ past.

    Your guests will appreciate the fragrance as well as they arrive for dinner parties, holiday get togethers or intimate gatherings among close friends. The smells of pine, cinnamon, cloves and more can turn your home into a holiday showplace where guests will be excited visit. You can even strategically place different holiday home fragrances in different rooms of your home so you can sample the many scents the season has to offer. Stronger scents in the bathroom and high traffic area, while scents that are softer should be placed in the kitchen and eating areas.

  • The Worst Smells in Your Home (And How to Fix Them)

    Have you ever come home to a bad smelling house? I don’t mean dinner was cooking and the smell of garlic infused fish filled the air. I am talking about a smell so foul that you gagged in repulsive disbelief that it could actually be coming from your home. No matter how clean your home is, eventually you will come home to a smell so bad that you want to turn back around and leave. Rather than putting your home up for sale with everything in it, why not find the offensive odor and handle it once and for all?

    Our homes can smell bad from time to time and knowing what the smell is and what to look for is the first step in removing it. Keep reading as we list some of the most offensive odors found in our homes.

    1. Mildew Towels

    Mildewed towels can smell bad. Really bad. If your towels become mildewed, you can remove the smell by washing them, by themselves, in hot water with a cup of white vinegar. The vinegar will kill any lingering bacteria. Then wash them as usual with laundry soap and they will come out smelling fresh and clean again.

    1. Pet Bed

         Pets get into everything and they have some awful smelling body oils that help to keep their coat shiny. This can make their bedding or favorite blanket smell foul. Wash their bedding often and never have to smell that odorific pet smell again.

    1. Garbage Can

    The garbage can is one of the worst smelling items in your home. It can range from slightly smelly, to full on putrid. If your trash can has a slight odor problem, a sprinkle of baking soda after cleaning will take care of it. Anything worse and you will need to scrub it with vinegar and hot water.

    1. Inside the Washing Machine

    The inside of your washing machine can begin to smell foul after multiple uses and this is related to mold and mildew that can build up inside. To keep it smelling fresh and clean, try running a hot or warm water cycle with two cups of bleach.

    1. Dishwasher

    Most of us do a terrible job of scraping the dishes before putting them into the dish washer. This could leave your dish washer smelling worse than anything you can imagine. This is because food particles become clogged in the filter basket and rot. To remove the smell, simply remove the filter basket and clean it out. Then run a wash cycle with one cup of white vinegar to kill any lingering bacteria.

    1. Toilet

    Toilets stink for obvious reasons, but that doesn’t make it any more pleasant. To keep them smelling fresh and clean, pour a cup of bleach in the tank on the back. This will help remove any unpleasant smells and help to kill any bacteria. Do not do this if you have a pet that likes to drink out of the toilet as this could make them sick.

    For those household odors that need more than an air freshener, use our handy guide and cleaning tips to keep your home smelling better than ever!

  • Candle Warmer Safety Tips

    Melted wax candle warmers are a safer and more convenient way to add the scent of your favorite candle to your home. Although flameless, candle warmers heat scented wax using electric current to a small heating unit built into the device. Without an open flame, there is reduced risk for fire and less chance of a small child getting burned by one. Even though these are a much safer version of the old candles we are all familiar with, there are still some precautions we must use when operating one in our home as they are not completely hazard-free.

    Being an electrical device, we need to follow some simple rules of care that we would with any other appliance, keeping in mind that a candle warmer does have a heating element. For starters, never operate any electrical device without understanding the manufacturer's instructions. A quick read over the usage instructions that come with the candle warmer will help keep you and your family safe.

    Next, never leave a candle warmer unattended. Turn it off or unplug it any time you leave the house. If you notice any damage to the cord, stop using the candle warmer immediately and this could cause a fire.

    When melting wax in your candle warmer, be sure it is out of reach of children or pets. The melted wax and the candle warmer itself can get very hot and cause burns. Always make sure that the wax has hardened and the warmer is cool before removing used wax.

    If your warmer smokes or gives off a burning smell, unplug it and discontinue use. There are a couple of reasons this could be happening. The warming element is overheating, or the type of wax you are using has a much lower melting point than the warmer was designed for.

    As with any electrical device, keep the candle warmer away from all liquids. Even a grounded appliance may cause a nasty shock if you touch it with wet hands. If you do happen to spill something on your warmer, be sure to turn it off right away and unplug it. Do not use the warmer again until you are sure that it has dried completely.

    Following these simple tips, you can enjoy your candle warmer without the risk of fire, burns or electrical shock while leaving your home smelling warm and inviting.

  • The Benefits of Home Fragrances

    When we visit friends and family, the first thing we notice when welcomed into their home isn’t the way it looks or even what they are wearing, it is the way it smells. Our sense of smell is very powerful and it is an important extension of our brain. Certain smells can mean danger, some can create a feeling of comfort and some can even make us hungry or romantic. In fact, our sense of smell is one of our bodies first receptors to initiate a response to our surroundings.

    This is the reason that many of us add specialty fragrances to our homes. We can create a welcoming atmosphere for guests or after a hard day’s work. Coming home to a familiar smell can release endorphins that make us feel good and can provide some much-needed energy. Some typical home fragrances that have very specific benefits include:

    • Lavender-can help us fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer as well as calming our nerves.
    • Peppermint-can give us more energy, provide mental focus and alleviate stress.
    • Cinnamon-this scent is very effective at reducing fatigue and making us more alert.
    • Citrus tones-improve the mood, increase concentration are often associated with a clean home.

    We can use the power of scent to our advantage almost anywhere we are. IN the car, at home or at the office, the atmosphere we create begins with the scents we use. Choose productivity related scents for the office and get more done. In the car, choose scents that will help you focus and stay alert. Even at home, we can use the power of scent to our advantage by creating a calming oasis that will welcome us, and our guests, home.

There are many scents around the house that makes us feel comfortable, just as there are a wide range of scents that we can add to our homes, our offices or anywhere we are that will make us feel good inside and be more productive.

    Why is it that certain smells make us feel certain ways or elevate our moods when we are down? After all, our sense of smell isn’t as great as most animals on the planet but it still plays a major role in our physical and mental health.

    The Smell/Mind/Body Connection

    Studies show that the smell/mind/body connection are a holdover of the life and death significance that smell had on early man. Our sense of smell is connected to our brain’s limbic system, one of the oldest parts of the brain in evolutionary terms. This part of the brain controls behaviour, emotions and long-term memory. In early man, his sense of smell would help him find food, avoid predators and even locate enemies.

    Smells and Health

    Just as early man relied on his sense of smell for survival, modern man can use that same sense of smell to heal themselves. Certain scents such as lavender releases hormones that make us feel good and other scents, including floral scents, can lower blood pressure and help you sleep deeper. If you want more energy and to increase your immune system, the smell of eucalyptus can help.

    Reduce Stress

    If you are stressed about work, money, your relationship or a big project that is due, sniffing lavender, coffee or vanilla will relieve your stress and could even reduce anxiety and pain levels in some people. In fact, aromatherapy using the scent of lavender can improve sleep quality, slow the nervous system and elevate your mood. Where kale is the new superfood, lavender can be considered a super-scent with healing powers that would take many harmful medications to equal.
