5. Essential oils
Have you ever walked into a space infused with an unforgettably distinct, sweet smell? The secret most likely lies in infusing an aromatic essential oil over a burner.

Infuse a few diluted drops over an oil diffuser or burner to create a fresh feel to or eliminate unpleasant odours from just about any space. Shop it here.
