What’s that smell?!

HA! I’ve asked myself that question one too many times since settling into my new apartment. The ancient ruin I decided to live in comes with its fare share of surprises and smells.

My favourite scent thus is of the fresh aroma of tobacco. I love how the thick air slithers it’s way through the vents and up to my nose. But the best part of it all, is how it sticks to my clothes- nothing better than free perfume amiright?

With some heavy duty tape, plastic and determination, I’ve succeeded in removing almost all traces of smoke. Looking back, I can’t help but laugh as I remember myself scrubbing walls, ceilings and floors trying to get rid of the stench…hey maybe I’ll be Cinderella for Halloween! I’ll take a picture in full cleaning action and send it to my landlord.

Friends often ask me what kind of natural products I use around the house- so I decided to share a few with you today! To help fight bad odours I’ve been using air cleaners, candles and essential oil diffusers. I think it’s really important for health and well-being to invest in quality products that don’t contain harsh chemicals. The 3 products I’m talking about today are dreamy and so worth the investment.

I’ve been using this essential oil diffuser for months now and still love it. You can add whichever scent you like and program it for 1, 2 or 4 hours. Plug it in before bed and let the night carry you away.

Found this new store called ‘Saje’ and it is dreamy! This 100% soy wax candle sits in a recovered white frosted glass. The smell is amazing.

Pleasantly surprised with the emission power of this oil. Well done.
