Competing Aromas – Keeping a fresh scent in your home

Thanksgiving is almost here and you know what that means – lots of cooking and baking. I don’t have any secret tips on cooking the perfect turkey, but I do know they smell wonderful (for a while). This holiday certainly has its share of wonderful food, which leads to all sorts of different smells filling your indoor airspace. So if you want to get fresher smell after cooking all that food – what should you do?

Well I recommend a good scented candle – soy wax is a good option because they are so clean burning and won’t anything else to the air inside your home. That leaves one problem to solve: What scent should I use?

First of all let’s cross off food scented candles – I love them but you will already have enough of the real thing! Next I would try to stay away from heavy floral smells like Lilac or Rose. Instead you want to look at lighter natural scents, especially citrus fruits.

So here are my recommendations for a complimentary scented candle that should help keep your home smelling fresh during this cook-a-thon!

  • Lemon Lavender
  • Mandarin Orange
  • Pink Grapefruit
  • Cranberry Citrus
  • Citrus Spruce
  • Fresh Mint
  • Peppermint

Hope this helps. Enjoy all that wonderful food and Happy Thanksgiving!Photo of turkey dinner
