You simply pick a few of your favourite edible ingredients that have a scent that you love and add them into a small saucepan with one cup of water. A few popular combinations you may want to try: vanilla, apples & cinnamon, orange, clove & cinnamon, or even lemon & lavender. You can combine almost anything to create your own custom smell that will waft around the home.
- Light & Oil: Would you believe that your standard light bulbs can help in making your home smell amazing? All you will need a high-grade essential oil, in the scent of your choice and a standard lamp. Apply 1-2 drops on the essential oil on to the top of the light bulb and turn on the lamp. Make sure to apply oil only when the lamp has been turned off and the lightbulb is cold. Once the light is on for a little while, you’ll start to notice the scent in the air.

Once you light the candle and it starts to warm up, you will notice the aroma of coffee drifting through the house.
