How To Use Essential Oils To Scent A Room
Choosing fresh, cleansing and deodorizing aromas for every room in your home
FRESH NEW WAYS TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO SCENT A ROOM
One of the most effective ways to bring an instant change in the vibe of your home is through the power of scent. Scent is personal to each one of us, and it’s common for us to have strong preferences in terms of what we prefer and what we could do without.
As important as it is to welcome our favorite aromas into our space, it’s equally important to ensure we’re doing so in the cleanest way possible, by eliminating the use of artificial fragrances and synthetic chemicals that are not only bad for the environment, but are bad for our personal health. The Environmental Working Group or EWG said it best; “When you see "fragrance" on a personal care product's label, read it as "hidden chemicals”. At Saje, we never use any ingredients that aren’t fully disclosed on the packaging of each of our products. We’re serious about transparency and want consumers to feel confident that what they’re seeing is what they’re getting.
Read on for the ways in which you can use essential oils to scent your home, 100% naturally and free of worry.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO SCENT A ROOM: ROOM SPRAYS
A very simple way to invite freshness into any area of your home is through the use of room or air sprays. These quick and easy to use misters help remove any airborne odors that stubbornly stay in our spaces, be it from cooking and food or children and pets.
Our go-to room sprays:
Airoma Loo: keep your bathroom (or any room) fresh at all times with this light and crisp room spray. For a minty, freshening and uplifting scent experience, renew your air with an invigorating blend of eucalyptus, lavender and spearmint. Shake well before each use and mist 6-8 times or as desired.
Fresh Air: say goodbye to stale, musty or stagnant air and welcome the cleansing, deodorizing and odor-neutralizing aroma of lemon, pine tea tree and white thyme into any room in your house with this all-natural spray. Our favorite places to use it include the kitchen, the front foyer and the bedroom first thing in the morning.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO SCENT A ROOM: DIFFUSERS
When you’re looking for the ultimate upgrade in terms of bringing decor, ambience and scent into your home, a diffuser is the way to go. Not only do you have the opportunity to customize and personalize your scent experience, you have the opportunity to select a diffuser you love based on the size, shape, texture and materials. Diffusers help to refresh the air in your space, create negative ions to elevate your overall well-being, bring fashionable aesthetics to any space and allow you to enjoy a tailored scent experience; what’s not to love?
Our go-to diffusers:
Aroma Om Stone: for small to medium sized rooms, our pick for best diffuser goes to the Aroma Om in chic, slate-grey cement stone. A 3+ time award winner (including Allure, NewBeauty and Men’s Health), this stylish diffuser offers run times between 3-6 hours on a continuous or intermittent setting, as well as an optional LED light feature.
Aroma Om Deluxe White: for medium to large sized rooms, we love to recommend our largest and longest-running diffuser, the Aroma Om Deluxe in timeless white ceramic. Boasting an impressive run time of 11-22 hours on a high or low setting, this unit also includes programmable run times of one, three and six hours, as well as a calm-inducing rotating colored LED light band. Add this unit to any open concept space like a living room or dining room for an optimal scent experience.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO SCENT A ROOM: DIFFUSER BLENDS
Of course we can’t mention using essential oils to scent a room without including our versatile and 100% pure essential oil diffuser blends! With more than 30 different blends to choose from throughout the year, our Community loves the variety and assortment of scent categories we offer, like citruses, florals, woodsy blends and so much more.
Our go-to diffuser blends:
Liquid Sunshine: everyone’s favorite burst of juicy fresh citrus, Liquid Sunshine is also an award-winning blend, chock full of sweet, uplifting and cheerful citrus scents. Grapefruit, bergamot, lime, orange and mandarin are zesty-fresh mood boosters to help you feel revived and revitalized in your space.
Refresh: when you want to rid your room of stubborn, lingering odors, look no further than the sweet, clearing and fresh notes of spearmint, lemon and eucalyptus that make up our most odor-neutralizing diffuser blend, Refresh. It’s like a crisp breeze flowing in through open windows every time you turn on your diffuser.
Tranquility: when you’re looking for a blend to take you from the evening towards bedtime, reach for the soothing, grounding and balancing scents of Tranquility. Formulated with calming lavender, marjoram to encourage deep breathing and roman chamomile to soothe the mind and body, this blend will help you unwind and feel at ease.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO SCENT A ROOM: APPLY TOPICALLY TO YOUR BODY
Though not as specific as room sprays or diffuser blends, applying essential oil roll-ons topically to the body is a great way to add a subtle but distinct aroma to your space. Natural heat from our bodies allows us to act as passive diffusers, allowing just enough of a scent to emanate from the body after we’ve applied. You can choose from roll-ons that support relieving pain or stress or those that provide a personal natural perfume experience.
Our go-to roll-ons:
Peppermint Halo: our best-selling roll on since Saje opened its doors in 1992, Peppermint Halo is bursting with cooling, soothing freshness. Formulated with uplifting peppermint, rosemary and eucalyptus alongside calming lavender and vetiver, this formula will help you feel revived when applied along the temples, hairline and nape of the neck.
Extra Strength: when you’re looking for big relief from pain, you’ve found it in our extra large and extra strong roll-on called Extra Strength. Formulated with key ingredients known to help ease, soothe and relax aches and pains in the body like sweet birch, menthol from peppermint and clove, this relieving roll-on can be applied to areas like the arms, legs and back to help you feel better, fast.
Stress Release: stress is something that affects all of us, and finding clean, natural products to help ease and relieve symptoms is just one of the ways you can help both your body and mind to feel centered and grounded. Blended with sweet, floral lavender, citrusy, fresh orange and earthy, herbal clary sage, this peaceful and calming roll-on will have you smelling and feeling your best in no time.
LIFESTYLE TIPS ON HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO SCENT A ROOM
When it comes to using essential oils to scent a room in your home, whether you’re new to natural products or you’re well versed in their use, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind to make your experience the best it can be:
- Less is more. In aromatherapy, you’ll often find you need less of a certain product (like a room spray or a diffuser blend) than you might expect to achieve your desired results. Essential oils are concentrated, meaning a little goes a long way so start with less product and adjust as desired.
- Just say no. To artificial fragrances, to ingredients that are listed on product packaging as ‘fragrance’, ‘parfum’, ‘natural fragrance’ and any other way that avoids the company having to be fully transparent about what specific ingredients were used to create that particular scent.
- Have fun finding what works for you. Customizing and personalizing the scent in your space should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience; smelling different blends, trying different combinations of oils or blending your own at home, scent should help elevate your vibe and your mood.
