10+ Calming Home Scents To Help You Unwind

10+ Calming Home Scents To Help You Unwind
Sharing is caring!

Your home should be a restful haven where you can kick back and chill out. But with the kids running amok, back-to-back conference calls and the stress of running the household, it’s no wonder many parents find themselves closer to meltdown than wind down.

A simple, fuss-free way to soothe some of those frazzled nerves is by infusing your home with aromatherapeutic scents that induce calm, promote relaxation and alleviate tension. They could be floral and herby like lavender, rosemary and clary sage; refreshing and uplifting like citrus, basil and mint; or warm and comforting like vanilla, ylang ylang, amber and sandalwood.


Calming Home Scents

Here, we’ve rounded up some wonderful-smelling home fragrance products (many of them by local artisan brands) that can help to bring some calm and serenity to your space.
