Some of us may be a tad self-conscious when we invite people over, mostly when it comes to the smell of our humble abodes. Incense, candles or wax melters, and all types of chemical air fresheners can temporarily absorb odors or can be too potent and make it hard to breathe. What if I told you that bringing in these essential oils won't only be more cost-effective and long-lasting, but will be beneficial to your mental and physical health on top of making your home smell great.
Meet some of the family members of aroma-pleasing essential oils that should always be welcome guests in your home.
