Who hasn’t been a bit neglectful doing the chores around home?

The kitchen bin smells bad, the laundry hamper is stinking up the bathroom, and the kids’ sports gear is just plain rotten. But there are natural ways to improve the air quality of your home without reaching for toxic spray fragrances.

Essential oils can provide many health and beauty benefits, but they can also help the home to smell wonderful too.   You can add essential oils to diffusers to have a sweet smelling odor throughout the home.

There are dozens of essential oils to choose from. It can be overwhelming to choose which ones to use.  Here are just a few to help you get started with aromatherapy.   

List of Sweet Essential Oils

Lavender Oil

Lavender must be one of the most popular essential oils of this century, but it’s also one of the best smelling. It has a fresh floral smell that is much better than rose, which everyone is tired of.

Lavender has soothing and calming properties when it’s breathed in, and can also help a person to get to sleep.   Click here to read reviews

Peppermint Oil

Not only is peppermint one of the most popular flavors for candies, toothpaste, and stomach remedies, it’s also a popular scent. This oil not only soothes a bad headache but it can also help to clear your sinuses when you have a bad cold.

It can help with allergies, and clear your mind when you have a big project. You can also mix it with water and use it as a spray disinfectant on your countertop, which provides antimicrobial properties, but doesn’t leave toxic residue behind.  Click here to read reviews


The frankincense scent not only has its roots in history, but it also smells good. It’s like a lighter form of licorice. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe the skin too.

This is also the perfect oil for when you’re practicing meditations, as it’s not as strong as peppermint, but won’t distract you, like the scent of ylang ylang or lavender can. Click here to read reviews

Sweet Smelling Essential oils Blends

Making your own perfume with essential oils can take some time especially if you want a sweet smell.   Ylang ylang is often a popular choice for this but it can be overpowering.

However it does depend on what essential oils are in the blend, but citrus oils are good choice, especially blood orange , tangerine, sweet orange, , and green mandarin can be sweet. Benzoin is particularly a very sweet oil, as is Vanilla Absolute or Vanilla CO2.    You can also try florals as these can sweeten the blend.    But you really have to think what will harmonize together and what your personal preferences are.
