How to make your bedroom smell like heaven

Your bedroom is your own personal space – especially if you live with your parents or in shared accommodation.

Therefore, it’s important to make your bedroom the best space it can be, and this includes making it smell really, really good.

Here are some tips on how you can make your bedroom smell fresh:

The basics
No room is going to smell good if it’s dirty so get out the hoover and the duster and get to work.

Don’t keep a bin in your bedroom
Unless it’s strictly for paper then you don’t need one. It’s far too easy to let it build up without emptying and thus creating a bad smell. It’s not that much effort to find a bin elsewhere anyway.

Use baking soda
When hoovering your bedroom, sprinkle the carpet with baking soda mixed with a little essential oil of your choice (orange blossom is always lovely). Baking soda neutralises odours and will rid your carpet of any nasty smells.

Keep your bed clothes fresh
Wash and change your bed clothes every few days and this will have a major impact on how fresh your bedroom smells.

Candles are always a great way of getting a lovely scent and some cosy atmosphere into a bedroom – just remember to blow them out!

Like candles, flowers will bring some character and decoration to your room as well as a lovely, natural subtle scent.
