Over the past two years, home has become the most important place to us all with many people’s lives centring around their new place of work, rest and play. In this time, many have refreshed their home with wallpaper, paints and new furnishings however using new scents may just be the way forward.

Scent-scaping allows you to control the mood and aroma in your home by fragrance alone. A key note to remember, each room has its own personality and purpose and you can demonstrate this by one of the main senses: smell.

To the right is a large 35cl cream coloured candle, in a dimpled, clear glass jar and next to this is the same candle but smaller (8cl).

Refresh and Revitalise

For those home schooling or working from home, sprawled out across the dining room table, or tucked away in your home office, refreshing, scent-scaping with  energising scents is a must. Citrus scents like grapefruit, lemon and orange have been proven to increase alertness and give you a well-deserved energy boost. When looking to boost concentration, vetiver is another key scent to achieve a focused mind.

Vibrant and fresh, our Just Grapefruit Reed Diffuser might be the choice for you. Blending lemon, orange, pink grapefruit and a dash of vetiver, this Collection will focus your mind and boost your energy for the day.

Relax and Recuperate

Sleep should be one of the most natural things our bodies can do, however so many struggle at night to switch off. With all the excitement going on elsewhere in the home, your bedroom should be a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity and scent-scaping can help you achieve this. 

Lavender has been used for centuries in many different forms, from the purple flowering plant in gardens, to its essential oil, both used to treat various ailments. Most commonly, lavender is well known for its sleep inducing qualities and studies show introducing the lavender scent into your bedroom can improve sleep. With the busy nature of modern life comes increased anxieties and stress, however lavender relaxes the mind and can alleviate stress too.

For bedrooms, or any room in your home that you want to use to relax and decompress in, our Mountain Lavender Calming Candle allows you to breathe in soothing lavender and exhale the stresses of life.

Scent-scaping and zoning can be a great way for your home to work around your life, not the other way round. Find scents that make you happy, that calm you and overall, bring you joy and place these across the home. Discover our full home fragrance collection.
