It's getting to be that time of year where everyone's house and cars smell...well...bad. The water, the mud, the people and animals all stuck inside, it makes for a less than present experience for the nose. So, I am going to dedicate most of this week to freshening up our spaces. And because I hate delaying indulgence (yes, I eat dessert before dinner...and after dinner...and sometimes for dinner) I am giving you my very favorite tip first.
Why is this tip my favorite? Because it combines something I have to do with something I want done and is a super inexpensive and Earth-friendly way to freshen up. How do you feel when you see this?
I KNOW! I used to feel that way too (awful, tired, unwilling)! But vacuuming is a necessary evil in most of our lives. And it's one I feel a lot better about since I stumbled over this tip to make your house smell better while you vacuum. Here's how it works; before vacuuming, you douse a cotton ball in a few drops of your favorite essential oil. My personal favorite is geranium because it fills the whole house, but feel free to experiment and find your own favorite.
Then you suck the cotton ball into the vacuum and have at your house with Hoover. As you vacuum, the essential oils will continue to release and by they time you are done, your whole house will not only be dust bunny free, but smell terrific too! Go on now, I know you want to try it!!!
