Midday Muse: Home Scents

I love the scent of lavender, and try to integrate it into my house in subtle ways. I tuck it into pouches that I sew and then put in clothing drawers, and also have used it as a scent for linen spray. Since lavender grows in my garden, I always have a fresh supply of the herb. Do you have a signature scent in your home?

Anything that combats the smell of litterbox...haha! It depends on the season. In the spring and summer, I want fresh, herbal scents. During the winter I turn into a foodie and burn warm, vanilla spice candles.

Dog? does that count? In seriousness, no. I'm so averse to scent that every product I buy has to be unscented if possible. I once read that air fresheners work not by eliminating smells but by deadening your smell receptors. So whenever I walk into a place that is scented, I can't help but wonder what are they trying to cover up? What am I NOT smelling? I also work on the assumption that just b/c I like the smell of something doesn't mean visitors, or my family, will appreciate as much.

I dilute Mrs. Meyer's all purpose cleaner(geranium scent)in a spray bottle with water and spray it on the curtains or in the air for a quick refreshner.
