I’m a girl who absolutely loves making my home smell delish. There’s just something so comforting about walking into a room, and being enveloped by a fragrance. Major boujee vibes.

Essential oils are a gorgeous way to incorporate fragrances into the home, as they’re so easy to set up in a diffuser and have a long lasting effect. I also find them to be seriously mood boosting — just one whiff and I feel as relaxed as I do after a glass of wine. As well as using them in the home, I know some people like rubbing them on their wrists too, for an instant pick-me-up.

It can be a li’l bit of struggle to scour the internet for hours to find the best places that sell them, with a good variety and good reviews. Luckily, I’ve done all the hard work for you, so you don’t need to worry about anything other than picking out a gorgeous, gorgeous scent.
