Plants are the key to giving your home fresh scents and aromas. There are plenty of flowering plants and herbs that thrive indoors and can give your home a divine smell year-round. Here are a few plants you should add to your collection.
Mint is easy to grow outside but the herb can also thrive indoors with the right conditions. Put your mint plant in a pot on a sunny windowsill and water when the soil is dry to the touch. This fragrant plant is great for salads, but you can also put them on a dish near your shower ledge to create a soothing aromatherapy steam.
Since gardenias come from the tropics, they need six to eight hours of bright, indirect sunlight. But these plants are one of the best sources of fresh scents. Keep your gardenias in rooms with a bit of humidity and a temperature range of 55 to 75 degrees F. You’ll want to use a soil that drains quickly to prevent any root rotting.
Another plant with a powerful scent is this delicate flower. These plants prefer cooler temperatures around 60 degrees F and indirect sunlight. If you want the scent to stick around, pot the bulbs at two-week intervals for a continuous bloom. If the conditions are right you’ll get sweet-smelling blooms each spring.
