No matter the time of year, it is always a great idea to bring in the Denver NC outdoors to add comfort to your home. One way that you can do that is through the use of scent. Not only will a pleasant aroma make your home smell amazing, but it can also lift your spirits or relax you.
Here are some ways to bring scent into your home.
- Light up a candle: You can find candles that carry North Carolina’s fragrances. Look on Etsy, here or here. Or at a local Candle store.
- Add some oil: You can put a few drops of essential oil in a mist diffuser or a reed diffuser. You can also add a few drops to a cotton ball. Then place it in your air conditioning or heater vents. You will soon have the whole house filled with an inviting aroma. You’ll find local oils at Rootz and other Lake Norman, North Carolina area specialty shops.
- Spill the beans: Purchase some whole coffee beans from your favorite Denver café, pour them into bowls or vases, and set them around your home. Here’s one to try: Cupz & Beanz. If you place them in a dish with a votive candle, the heat will diffuse the scent throughout the room. This is a particularly great way to add warmth and an invigorating scent during the chillier winter months.
- Fill your home with fresh flowers: In the winter, choose a bouquet with evergreen branches to keep the fragrance crisp. In the spring, gather a cluster of early-blooming bulbs to brighten up a room. In the summer, choose your favorite outdoor blossoms, and in the autumn, gather colored leaves and branches of acorns into a dish.
No matter what time of year, you can bring the wonderful outdoor scents of the Denver area into your home with a little creativity and ingenuity.
