Bring the smells of nature inside this winter by investing in a few scented candles, incense or sprays. Smells like cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, pumpkin, or cranberry are all great autumn and winter scents to look out for. For summer and spring think more floral smells like rose, jasmine, coconut and sandalwood.
Why not add a natural smell through the home by cooking up some seasonal foods. Cookies, gingerbread, chicken soup, or homemade bread make excellent wintery smells. For summer cut up some fruit such as melon, apples or oranges or add a few bunches of flowers around the house.
