Got a spare Sunday coming up?


With a new season just around the corner, we think that now’s the perfect time to set your house up for Autumn greatness. All through the power of scent, of course!


Whilst many of us know that the gentle glow of a candle can take a colder evening from dreariness to cosiness, many of us don’t consider the impact that scent can make. Aromachology – or scent psychology – is a truly brilliant way to up-level any space and improve your mood while you’re at it. So, knowing how to incorporate scents into your cleaning routine can make a tangible difference.

Just consider us your Eco Godmothers, because we’re here with some simple steps to a glorious smelling home. Do them all in one day or spread them out over the month to truly reinvigorate your space.

Let’s start with a blank canvas…

Before you begin adding new, delicious scents into your home, it’s important to cleanse. Get rid of any lingering odours and freshen up your living space, so that the scents you love can take centre stage.


Deodorise your fridge 

If you start anywhere, start here! Fridges can be a hotbed (or…coldbed?) for bad smells, from that garlic-filled pasta sauce to the opened can of tuna. It’s always a good idea to freshen it up regularly. 

Of course, a general clear out is probably the best way to keep smells at bay. However, go one step further with this eco cleaning hack: Fill a small container with baking powder and then sprinkle in a few drops of an essential oil of your choice. We’d recommend lemon or something similarly fresh. This will absorb odours before they become an issue. 

Get rid of damp 

Excess moisture is also another common cause of unwanted smells. White vinegar sprayed on mildew is a brilliant, planet-friendly way of getting rid of it. Plus, these natural bamboo air purifying bags can reduce moisture in the air, to stop damp, mould and mildew in the first place. 

Refresh your appliances 

Let’s get those pesky appliances sorted too. 

For your washing machine, simply pour two cups of white vinegar into the detergent drawer. Then set the machine to a high temperature and the longest cycle. Similarly, clean your dishwasher by adding 1 cup of white vinegar into a bowl and then running a hot cycle. This will break down grease, food and potentially stinky residue. 

Now let’s enhance your space…

With your blank canvas sorted, it’s time to introduce scents that promote a happier mood and a healthier home. Here’s how to spritz, burn and diffuse your way to success: 

Keep your bathroom fresh

Everybody wants a bathroom that feels clean and calm, right?

After all, if you’re cleansing your skin, your space should feel cleansed too!

Candles are a brilliant way to introduce a new scent to a bathroom or toilet, as you can light them up when needed. Our Breathe Candle is fresh, invigorating and contains a blend of decongestants to aid breathing. It brings together anxiety-relieving chamomile, uplifting eucalyptus, clarifying hyssop and energising lemon.


Turn your bedroom into your sanctuary 

Your bedroom should be the space that you feel most relaxed in. Having cleansed your home, focus on now using aromachology to set a calming, regenerative tone in your sleep space. We promise that you’ll thank yourself in the morning!

Room sprays are brilliant for anywhere in the home with soft furnishings and upholstery. Spritz our Relax Roomist after making the bed. It’s a bestseller for a reason, bringing together calming eucalyptus, stress-relieving lavender and mood-boosting lemongrass.

Welcome happiness into your home 

Whether big or small, your entrance hall sets the tone for anyone you’re bringing into your home. 

IE DiffusersWe love using diffusers near our front door, as they release a constant stream of scent, meaning we’re always prepared for guests. Plus, we’re welcomed home in a positive way too!
