Happy new week and the official first day of autumn! As I mentioned in my article how to create a hygge home, scents are very important to achieve a peaceful, serene and inviting space that you will enjoy and feel calm in.
A go-to scent for relaxation for many is for instance lavender, which can help calm the mind and body almost instantly. The smell of lavender has many other benefits; it may help you improve your sleep, can reduce blood pressure and heart rate while making you feel less stressed. Oh and they do also look beautiful in a vase so that is a bonus.
The flowers of the lavender plant have a soothing fragrance when they are fresh or dry, which makes them great as they will last long in your home. I decided to pick up a bouquet to bring a bit of calm to my home. What do you think?
In addition to the large vase in my kitchen, I also put a few lavenders in the living room so now my house smells oh so good…
