How do I make my new home feel like home?
You’re in your new home, you have your contracts in order, gas and electricity are working. Yet… you feel like something is not quite right. You figure it’s fine, it takes time to get used to a new place, a new neighbourhood, a new building and/or new neighbours.
What you might not think of is, there’s actually something you could do to make it better!
It’s been scientifically proven that smells can relieve some positive emotions and create an enjoyable environment. People usually associate smells with memories.
Scented candles have had positive effects on new moves for decades. Picking a smell that speaks to you is strongly advised, like a smell which reminds you of a happy time or a happy place.
The great thing about scented candles is that you don’t actually have to have them lit all the time to smell them. They let out a natural smell which will have the room you put them in embedded with that smell in a matter of minutes.
Lighting them obviously makes that smell stronger and gives your room, living room, bedroom window, a sense of harmony and peace.
Your brain will associate the smell with someplace happy and you will feel relaxed. This is how you can help make your new house your new home.
