How-to Create an Aroma Palette for Every Room in Your Home
Post Sponsored by Comet
Through personal experience we know that scents have the power to bring back fond and fun memories, which is why they can totally transform and lift a room’s mood. Aromas add a level of freshness and a new dimension to any environment. Make your home more welcoming by thinking about more than color and style when you create a newly designed space - include scents in your room design!
Deep clean the rooms with products that hold a longer-lasting clean, like Comet Powder, to create a blank canvas. This elementary step is crucial to make cleaning your first priority when creating aroma palettes.
Use your best judgement on what needs a fresh touch depending on your own spaces. Our deep-cleaning started in the bathroom and kitchen, followed by dusting the bedroom and living room surfaces.
Select your aroma palette scents based on the feel of each specific room. For example, use calming, sleep inducing scents in the bedroom. Here we used a vanilla candle. Other recommendations for a bedroom include eucalyptus mint scented candle, lavender, jasmine, sandalwood or chamomile.
In the bathroom we selected a clean linen reed diffuser to inspire a fresh, airy feeling. Avoid heavy, powerful perfume scents in the bathroom especially if it’s a small space. It will create an overwhelming scent that doesn’t compliment the room.
In the Kitchen we placed a mulling spice candle on the counter. Spices and savory scents match well with the vivaciousness of the kitchen, like cinnamon, clove, or cardamom.
Floral scents are great for opening up a room (like a flower fragrance “bouquet”, if you will) which make them ideal for common gathering areas of the lime, like the living room. We chose a peony candle and paired it with rose petal potpourri.
The choice of using candles, spices, herbs or essential oils is entirely up to you and what matches your personal style and preference. We recommend including up to two smell-good elements for a solid aroma palette that will profoundly fill a space. You don’t want to create an overwhelming array of scents by incorporating too much of a good thing, rather, you want to build a complimentary scent for each space in your home.
Aroma palettes are a great way to make your home more warm and inviting. And it’s a fun project that doesn’t take much time or effort!
