Five ways to give your home a sweet summer scent | The Sun

SKIP through the countryside, enjoy sultry summer nights or stroll in a shady orange grove – without even leaving home.

Thanks to the power of scent, you can fill your house with a fragrance that instantly takes you to your happy place. And it costs a lot less than a plane ticket.

A DROP OF SUNSHINE: Line up essential oils that remind you of sunny days. Aroma Energy’s Summer Lovin’ and Summer Garden, from £2.85 at are the perfect introduction.

You can then use them in a diffuser or room spray. For a large range of scents, the Scentcerity pack of eight oils, available in Aldi stores, is down from £9.99 to £5.99.

TWO GOOD TO MIST:Use a plug in diffuser to waft your summer scents around your room.

The Aromaworks USB and battery diffuser, which doesn’t need water, is £14.99 at Superdrug and you can currently buy one for yourself and one for a friend — with the second half-price.

REED AND RELAX: Reed diffusers are a safer alternative to candles and their scents last for weeks. The Range’s Cool Summer Zesty Lemon or Sweet Orange reed diffusers are ripe with fruity scents, down from £4.99 to £3.99.

STEAMY SUMMER: Boost your mood with a steam diffuser. They can get a little pricey but a good option is B&M’s grey ceramic one, £22. The store also has a pack of four essential oils for £10.

LITTLE SQUIRTS: Get ready for guests with a timely squirt of room spray. Transport yourself far away with Sainsbury’s Patchouli and Amber Room Spray, £4.
