Essential Oil Ultimate Guide

A Fragrance Lover’s Guide To Essential Oils In The Home

Our master perfumers provide a fragrance-lovers guide to using essential oils in the home along with a list of our most popular essential oil refills.

Inside the core of many plants, unseen deep within roots, seeds, flowers, and bark, are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds known as essential oils.

These oils are extracted from the plant, trapping its unique essence.

They are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing.

It can take several pounds of a plant to produce a single bottle of essential oil.

A gift from Mother Earth, the purpose of these oils is to harness the power of nature into residential interiors.

While the familiar scent of home can be many things for many people, that old saying about a home being where the heart is at the core of how fragrance affects all those living within a particular space.

How a residence smells weaves a tale all its own, and home and hearth, particularly during the holiday season and long cold winters, represent a synergy of emotions, moods and memories.

Apart from the obvious loving warmth of family and friends, fragrance represents a healthy balance between lives preoccupied with business, bills, children and all the ups and downs of daily life with a stream of serenity and peace when lost in a fragrance that awakens memories of happy times long past.

Some aromas associated with home are more potent than others.

For example, sugary, creamy and spicy pumpkin pie, warm cinnamon, a touch of ginger, crisp, green apples, school glue, or fresh-cut grass have all been known to evoke vivd flashes of recall.

Best Holiday Home Scents

Sometimes known as “odor-evoked autobiographical memory” or the “Proust phenomenon,” the term derives from the iconic novel, In Search of Lost Time, when the narrator dips a Madeleine cookie into a steaming hot cup of tea.

The pleasing aroma transports him into a mental time tunnel at the end of which lies a long-forgotten bundle of memories from his childhood.

Benefits of Using Essential Oils In The Home

Essential oils create a warm inviting ambiance.

They soothe the human psyche, and while all are effective in one way or another, some are more ideal than others when it comes to the simple art of learning how to destress and relax.

Essential oils are brilliant products that keep the home smelling warm and inviting.

Unwanted odors are a cause of discontent, and using the right ones can can make any home a very comfortable place.

These oils also reduce congestion and offer relief from mucus buildup aiding easier breathing.

The sensory elements of our homes, which now often double as work stations, are more present in our lives and thoughts than they ever were before the Covid-19 pandemic.

If homes must now serve simultaneously as work spaces, areas to exercise, socialize and relax, there must be some psychological distance between these various functions.

Scents help to accomplish this by providing a smooth transition into a focused and productive mind set.

Switching from uplifting citrus or peppermint-based scents during work hours, to a soothing, comforting lavender-infused setting for the evening can provide highly effective spatial differentiation.

Fruit Inspired Ambient Scents

Introducing a fragrance into a home is exclusively a matter of setting a mood to suit an individual’s needs. 

According to scent designer, Maurice Joosten: “Start small. The idea would be that there is a reaction, there is an experience, but it shouldn’t stand out. Because then it’s already, in a way, too much.”
