I am fascinated by how smell can affect people's mood or even shopping habits or work performance. That good smells can make you happier and how even a whiff of something can straight away bring back memories. Apparently we even tend to choose our partner by smell.
Since smell has clearly a powerful effect, I want the scent in my home to be subtle and with the essential oils I feel like. I discovered there is a simple way to make my own air freshener. I use a jam jar with some sea salt in it and a few drops of essential oil.
Interestingly enough the favourite smell of a woman will always be her newborn baby and for men it's the smell of breakfast.
