I thought i would make a topic where you girls(and guys?) can share some tips and tricks regarding to home, food, garden or what ever appropriate for this subforum.
Ill start with this home fragrance thing i came up with some time ago:
1: Get a plate
2: Place a cotton ball on it
3: Put some drops of essential oil on it(i like orange, orange flower or neroli which basically as far as i remember is just orange flower of some certain strain of orange grown mostly for this sort of stuff). How many obviously depends on how strong smell you want, what essential oil you use and how strong that oil is.
4: Place the plate(s) somewhere in your apartment
Words of caution: Some essential oils might cause irritation to you or pets. So check the properties of the oil you are planning to use and keep in mind that some oils might cause irritation to your pets even tho it may be safe for humans. I wouldnt recommend using any in large amounts(as in many of these all over the house with dripping wet cotton ball) if you have pets.
It will surely be better than any of those (nasty chemical smelling)home fragrances you buy from supermarkets and will be cheaper in the long run.
Personally i only tested with orange and orange flower oils and they seem to last quite a long time and you can easily add few drops to make it smell and moist again.
