Sometimes it is the unseen that can make an impact on your home.

Fragrance is a silent yet powerful element that can influence the atmosphere and experience the moment someone sets foot inside your space.

Look for alternatives to unnatural elements such as plug-ins. Often these elements introduce an artificial fragrance into the home, which can be unappealing.

Here are 4 tips to keep in mind for incorporating fragrance into your home.

Burn a fire. Whether you have a fireplace or wood stove, the scent of a fresh fire can help add a winter element as well as an inviting sense of warmth.

Consider natural elements such as lemons and limes, which automatically add a powerful fragrance. Or, use fresh herbs and flowering plants such as sage, lavender and mint. Fresh and fragrant, they will automatically bring an inviting scent.

Add accents such as diffusers and candles. They can help incorporate a continuous scent within a home. Infuse essential oils into your space either by using pure liquid sprinkled on key surfaces or using a diffuser.

Use blooms, even in the winter. Adding fresh florals can be a welcomed fragrant addition to nearly any space.
