Resolve to make your home smell amazing this year with these easy DIYs. The winter temperatures will prevent you from throwing open your doors and windows regularly and letting the fresh outdoor scents in. Consider trying these options to make your home into the scented oasis you deserve.

Craft an Orange Clove Pomander

If you want your home to smell like your favorite bakery, give this sweet air freshener a try. Pierce the skin of an orange in several places and stud with cloves. As the fruit dries, it releases a spicy-sweet scent. For more options on how to make this, check out the directions here.

Set out Coffee grounds

The smell of coffee brewing can revive the most non-morning people but it can also combat perpetual room odors. Grind your beans, brew them or bake them in the oven to neutralize odors and transform your space into your favorite coffee shop.

Citrus Diffuser for the Sink

There is a funky smell coming from the garbage disposal…again. But if you have any citrus around, you also have a natural diffuser on hand. Run some orange, lemon, or lime peels through the disposal. The citrus smell will circulate through your sink to make it smell fresh and clean.

Regular Filter Changes

Changing out your filters regularly allows your system the refresh it deserves for working hard. Odor build-up is created in your air filters over time removing dust and particles from the air and not changing them regularly can fill your home with a funky smell. Once changed, your filter can do a great job of catching more air contaminants and your home will smell great again.

If your home isn’t smelling like the oasis you deserve after trying out these DIY options, you can always hire a professional to check out your ventilation system. Having your air ducts cleaned and system tuned up will make sure your system is in good shape to circulate clean air.
