31 Days - Making your House your Home - Aromatherapy...
Do you notice smells when you walk into other people's homes? I sure do! Sometimes it's amazing - like when you arrive for Thanksgiving dinner and smell that heavenly turkey. Or go to a birthday party and walk in immediately smelling that signature 'cake' aroma. Sometimes it's not good at all - pets or cigarette smoke for example.
I think that welcoming aromas make a house feel cozy and warm. I like to think others feel the same way. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of what I call 'artificial aromas' - like room sprays and Glade Plug-ins. I like the more natural ones - like apple pie. Wait, maybe I just like apple pie?? The smell of baking, baking anything, just makes a home seem like a home - lived in and loved.
I do love a good candle though. My favorite being Buttercream from Yankee. Worth. Every. Penny.
I also love the smell of a clean house. Especially if someone else has cleaned it. In my house that means vinegar, since that's what I use to clean most of the time. Pinesol is cool too.
What are your favorite aromas? Candles or otherwise.
