When spring has sprung, it’s time to bring the outdoors indoors! Let’s cook up some room scents and make our homes smell like the freshness of spring: naturally!

Hello, all! It’s slowly starting to warm up and thaw out (for those who are in colder climates than we are) and that means spring is here! I love spring. Flowers start blooming, trees start showing off their beautiful green leaves. And the smell? You can’t beat the smell of fresh, spring air. I mean, unless you have allergies, and then you probably don’t like spring as much as I do. Today, I’m continuing my natural room scents series. I’m going to go over some simple and easy ways to naturally bring in springtime home fragrance, and hopefully not set off any allergies. Though, I have a secret at the bottom of this post that might help with your allergies!

Fresh Flowers: Okay this is a no-brainer. Want your house to smell like spring? Get some fresh flowers! Talk about having real natural room fragrance! You can get some from a flower shop, a local farmer’s market (many will have flowers in the springtime!), or you can go outside and pick your own. Or, if you really want to get into the springtime spirit, get a flowering plant or spring hanging basket. This way, you have flowers all spring long! If you just want cut flowers so you don’t have to deal with the plant, one thing I would keep in mind for later is as the flowers are starting to droop and die, remove them and dry them. You can then use them as potpourri! Actually, I would also do this with plants too. More springtime scents for home for your buck!

Mojito Scented Jar: Okay you can’t tell me this won’t smell like a mojito. It’s going to be an amazing and refreshing home fragrance. All you need is fresh limes, thyme, mint, and vanilla. You could also use fresh mint leaves if you want. Pack your ingredients into a jar, fill with water, and you can just open this and enjoy the wonderful smell. Or, put it on a candle warmer to really get the smell wafting through your house. The longer you let it marinate in the jar, the stronger the room fragrance will get. Then, you won’t even have to use as much, or even put it on a warmer or anything. Just open the jar and let the scent fill your home!

Room Scents Springtime Simmer Pot Jars Simmering Pot Recipes Spring

Simmer Pot Jars: I love the way these simmer pot fragrance jars are made. Granted, these are not much different than the scented jars, but the presentation for these simmer pots is cute. What a great way to store them, or give them out to friends! I was just thinking, to help preserve the ingredients, you could also add in a bit of vodka to keep the citrus and fresh herbs from spoiling. If you can preserve them just a little bit, you can prepare these and give them as gifts! Think about it. You could make your friends and family jars that would give them simmer pot house scents for every season. If you knew the jars wouldn’t spoil or anything. That would be awesome!

Room Scents Spring Potpourri Made From Dried Flowers Citrus and Essential Oils

Springtime Potpourri: Homemade potpourri is awesome. Remember those fresh flowers from the beginning of the post? I told you when they start wilting, you can turn them into potpourri, and here's a tutorial! I love the addition of citrus to this floral potpourri. So easy and simple to do! Also, I’m very intrigued by the essential oil spray. Hello, what a great idea! You could take the scented oils of whatever flowers and citrus you have in your potpourri and strengthen the scent when it starts to fade. Genius!

Room Scents Local Honey for Allergy Relief Farmers Market

I did tell you guys I have a secret that I use to combat my terrible allergies. I’ve mentioned it in some of my tea posts, and I’m going to go over it in a little more detail. So, what is something that causes our allergies to majorly go all nutso on us and make us want to cry and curl up with a box of Kleenex? Pollen. Pesky Pollen. Last summer I found a fantastic way to lessen your allergies, and even some of your sinus problems. Honey from local bees. Yup. It’s that simple. Now, the important part is the local thing. You have allergies because of the pollen from local flowers, so to help make yourself more immune to that, you should ingest local honey, since the bees get pollen from those local flowers! Genius, I know. So, if you have bad allergies, go find some locally sourced honey! Just look for local beekeepers or look into local bee removal companies. Sometimes they collect the honey and sell it as well.

Well, there you have it folks! Some awesome and natural ways to bring the scent of spring into your home! Which is your favorite? Is there a combo you like that I didn’t mention? Let me know in the comments below, and don’t forget to share this with your family and friends. As always, stay creative, my friends!
