An Oil Burner to Make My House Smell Great

Author: Natural-Beauty
March 15, 2017

2 oilKeeping my house smelling great is really easy. I have all sorts of oils at my house, because I like using essential oils and others. Some are therapeutic, some smell nice, and some are a bit of both. Nonetheless, if I want to release them into the air, I use a burner. And after just a little bit, my home feels fresher and smells great.

There are times when I like my house smelling more herb-y, and there are times when I prefer something fruitier. But no matter what mood I’m in, I have an oil I can use. My oil burner is always up to the challenge of making my house smell absolutely wonderful. So when I choose an oil to burn, the scent wafts throughout the whole house and is absolutely divine.

When I use my oil burner, it’s a really positive thing. Because the thing is, I have pet cats. So when I don’t use the burner, the litterbox tends to smell, and no one wants to smell that. I make an effort to use my oil burner often, just so I can drown out other unwanted scents in the house. And I have to say, it works great.

Natural Body Oils Are Better than Perfumes

body oilsI used different types of perfumes for many years before I eventually ended up realizing that I was allergic to this kind of a substance. Perfumes would make me sneeze and cough which made wearing them just about impossible. If I wanted to wear some kind of a fragrance, I would have to sacrifice my ability to breathe well which wasn’t really worth it.

I started looking at some natural ways that I would be able to make myself smell a lot better. I checked several different types of fragrances and spent some time comparing the different types of oils that I could potentially try. I eventually decided to start wearing some different types of body oils because these were much more natural than synthetic fragrances.

When I started to use these, I was really impressed with how amazing they smelled. I had expected the scent to possibly be too subtle, but after the first time using it, I learned that these oils could easily be very overpowering. When I just use a small amount I am able to smell good while being able to breathe as well. It is so nice to be able to have this kind of a fragrance.


stale odorWe are continuing our discussion about stale odors in your home. I should mention these bad smells can be anywhere. Consider places like your car, office, basement – anywhere you might be. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have to smell a bad odor, I don’t want to. Today let’s talk about a couple more essential oils that will help you eliminate stale odors in your home.

Rosemary Essential Oil

The bubonic plague, also known simply as the plague killed over 1/3 of the earth’s population at that time. It was a devastating disease and people would burn rosemary to help stop the spread of the disease. Hospitals also used it to purify the air. Well, in this day and age, you can use rosemary essential oil in your diffuser to clean up stale air in the home because it has an antiseptic and purifying effect. It also smells great.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Just like lemon essential oil which we’ve already discussed, grapefruit essential oil works the same way. When you smell it floating around in the air in your home you’ll see why it’s one of my favorite essential oils. Grapefruit is somewhat stronger than lemon so many people use it where the odor is stronger too, like the bathroom. It’s also great to use in the shower because it is such a refreshing pick me up. Tomorrow we have one more essential oil  to discuss and then we can get into some diffuser recipes.


Patchouli Essential Oil

Many people who hear the word or smell the pungent fragrance of patchouli think of the drug smoking hippies who indulged in free love during the sixties and seventies. Pathchouli is so much more than that! It was used in the East hundreds of years ago to scent clothes and bed linens. In the 1800s the English imported fabric scented with patchouli from India and began to associate the scent with fabrics.

Patchouli is an earthy, musky scent and while it is associated with fabrics, it can be useful in many other situations and it has therapeutic properties as well. It is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal. It can be used as an aphrodisiac or an insect repellent. It provides balance and harmony to the body and spirit and can even fight off body odor by acting as a deodorant and an anti-perspirant. Patchouli acts as an appetite suppressant making it beneficial to dieters all over the world. Patchouli also has the distinction of actually getting better with age; the older the oil, the fuller the scent.

 


Fragrance Oil Burners

I am not a fan of convenience store air fresheners. They smell like cheap perfume and hang heavily in the air. Instead, I like to freshen up the smell of my home with natural fragrance oils dispersed with oil burners.

Using my favorite scents, I’ve added a bit of this and a little of that to come up with a signature scent for my home. It smells clean, light, and subtly tantalizing. All I do is add the mixture to a few oil burners I have strategically placed around my home. I light the candle underneath the oil burners and let the fragrances get to work.


Fragrance Identity

126-20518I will always associate a particular aftershave balm with my father.  I could smell that fragrance anywhere and I would automatically think of my dad.  He still uses the very same one to this day and my mother tells me that he has been using it since before she met him.  I guess some guys have a fragrance identity and changing it could be harder than changing one’s finger print.  Some men are just consistent, I guess.

My husband doesn’t wear any kind of fragrance at all.  I would smell his deodorant and the soap he uses in the shower but nothing else besides that.  He told me he used to wear cologne when he was younger but then it got too expensive for him and he stopped wearing it ever since.  He told me he’s not opposed to wearing cologne again, but wonders if spending around fifty dollars for something he’s going to rarely use is a wise decision.  For his birthday, I wanted to surprise him with a bottle of cologne.  I knew he would be upset if I spent too much on it so I went to a store that specialized in discount fragrances and I got it for half the price.  He still doesn’t wear cologne every day, but he does wear it more often.

Oil Based Air Freshener

March 15, 2012

Are you familiar with natural, oil based air fresheners? I see many air fresheners advertised but most of them have chemicals that may be harmful to the body or the environment. I even read that some of the plug in types can cause house fires. These natural oil based air fresheners have been formulated to be used as a burning oil or  as a spray air freshener. You can use these natural products as a spray in your car, your bathroom or any room in the house. You can also use this same product as a burning oil in a diffuser.

These oils are concentrated and their fragrance lasts a long time. If you are using a diffuser and you find the fragrance too strong, you can add water to the oil burner to dilute the scent. There are several delicious aromas to choose from and you can even mix fragrances to make your own blend. You can choose from cherry-orange, cherry-pineapple, vanilla-pineapple, canteloupe, mango, jasmine, or banana-strawberry.


Layering Fragrances

Perfume wearers are often faced with the same dilemma. They want to be enveloped in a soft fragrance all day, but if they put just a little bit of perfume on it will wear off by the middle of the day. If they put on enough to last through the day, then in the morning they will be overwhelming the senses of everyone around them.

The best technique for striking the perfect balance is layering. Begin the day by showering with a scented body wash that compliments the body oil fragrance you favor. Follow up the shower with a matching scented moisturizer. Finally, before you head out the door, spray perfume on the inside of your wrists and behind each ear. This should leave you smelling sweet all day long.
