Aromas To Energise You

Essential oils to fragrance your homeThe use of fragrances is a key factor in deciding the atmosphere at home.

It can help you feel de-stressed and energised. Kiran Ranga, Master Fragrance Creator, Ripple Fragrances has the following tips to offer when it comes to choosing the right fragrance for your home.

Home fragrances are now considered the fourth dimension of home decor following touch, sight and sound. Home fragrances are wellness fragrances designed to rejuvenate, relax and energise the mind which is as important as the other dimensions of home decor. They are harnessed by the power of aromacology which blends custom fragrances and body care as well as uniquely mixed scents to represent your personality.

Home fragrances are used to de-stress ourselves and make the indoor environment a healthier and more pleasing place to be in. Home fragrances make people feel better about themselves. Consumers are eagerly embracing home fragrance products that neutralise odours and bacteria in our indoor air, not just cover them up.

A stylish home fragrance delivery system like reed diffusers and vaporisers can be displayed as decor at home or the work place. Consumers desire an attractive as well as efficient home fragrance delivery system. Ordinary room fresheners can mask a bad smell for some time and the effect lasts for a few hours. Home fragrance delivery systems are desired to work 24/7 and create a feeling of wellness.

Fragrance oils are used to enhance the ambience of a room, and in the case of home fragrance oils, they are based on essential oils, as part of aromatherapy. Home fragrance oils are a fast growing part of the home fragrance market. Home fragrances are not used as sprays, neither are they used by lighting it with fire, so they are extremely environment friendly. The different odour categories in home fragrances are:


Floral fragrances are traditional fragrances people think of when flowers come to mind. Lavender, rose, lilac, geranium and jasmine are all popular and well-known floral fragrances. Floral fragrances tend to be thought of as feminine fragrances, and are perfect for scenting body products as well as for bathrooms and bedrooms.

Citrus / fruity

Citrus fragrances are clean, invigorating and fresh. Orange blossom, lemon, lemongrass, lime, grapefruit and bergamot are all citrus fragrances. Citrus fragrances are gender neutral, and are well suited for the morning routine, freshening a bathroom, scenting the car, office or anywhere else you need a boost of fresh citrus energy throughout the day.


Green fragrances tend to be seen as gender neutral, and include calming rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus. Any of these fragrances and herbs makes a relaxing bath and is a good choice for scenting unisex soaps, bath salts and lotions.


Spicy fragrances warm up a room and the person smelling the aroma with their unique properties. Cinnamon, ginger, myrrh and frankincense are all spicy fragrances. Fragrances from this category tend to be strong, and are good to use when the winter weather seems to be chilling the air everywhere.


Earthy fragrances are resinous and can be used to scent bath products for those who like a musky smell. Fragrances that fall into this category include sandalwood, rosewood, musk, cedarwood and patchouli.

Try starting off your morning with a citrus scented candle or essential oils to give you an energy boost. Use lavender or vanilla in the afternoon to relax, or pine to wake you up for the rest of the day. Wind down with romantic rose scents in the bedroom at night or breathe in the fragrance of Ylang-Ylang to relieve the stress of the day. Make your home your fragrance retreat all day.
