Your sense of smell is the strongest of all the senses.
Have you ever smelt something and instantly been taken back to a memory? I am like that with freshly mowed grass, mint sauce and Christmas trees to name but a few.
So it stands to reason that if you take the time to get your home clean and tidy, you should also make it smell the way you want it to. This will help your home feel like a much nicer place for you to spend your time.
How your home smells can truly have an affect on how you (and others) feel in it.
The products and people in a home make a truly unique smell, and in your own home you will barely even notice it – but it’s there, it’s what makes you feel truly at home in the space.
I could often be blindfolded and led to a home that I visit a lot (family and close friends) and just by using my sense of smell I could tell where I was. That’s powerful stuff!
