I personally love camping the scent of the fire burning the wood is soothing to me. If you also enjoy the smell of campfires try this. The next time you are getting ready to set a fire In you’re fire place try using bark essential oils such as pine or cinnamon on to the wood. I generally use up to three drops of my choosin essential oils. This will give a lovely outdoor effect to the feng shui of your home.
Rosemary is a very strong herbal scent try using it on logs or coals the next time you have a fire in you hearth or fire place. All you do is sprinkle the herb across the log and or coals and let the fire do all the rest.
Lavender is one of the strongest smelling essential oils and herbs if you really want to get rid of an odor lavender sprays are the best way to go for those really pungent aromas.
Freshening your home does not have to be done by a chemical that is bought in the store. You can eliminate odors by using many things that are already in your home. Keep that natural way of thinking and the earth will thank you.
