Nothing compliments a clean house like a tantalising aroma; a special scent has the power to elevate your surroundings to the next sensory level, immediately setting the scene and changing a room’s aura for the better. Whether you wish to be uplifted, energised, soothed or transported back to wonderful memories, there’s a scent to suit every mood.
Our simple, two-step method below will show you how to home make delicious smells with ease; all you need is a boiling pan, some water and a few ingredients you may well already have lying around in your store cupboard…
Fill a medium/large boiling pan with water and combine with ingredients of your choice.
Bring water to boil and let it simmer, releasing a delicious fragrance which will spread to every nook and cranny of your home – be sure to watch the pot doesn’t boil over!
That’s it – simple!
