Last October my mother-in-law took my sister-in-law and I to Villa La Estancia, a resort in Mexico, to celebrate her 60th birthday. It was an incredible place and from the moment you walked in the front doors you felt like royalty. People were there greeting you, saying “welcome home”, everyone was so friendly and best of all the place smelled AMAZING!
My MIL (mother-in-law) was obsessed with how incredible it smelled in the lobby and every time we walked through there she would say, “It smells so amazing in here!” I was determined to figure out how they made it smell so amazing because I thought if I could figure it out, then it would be a great Christmas gift for her (and it was!). So when we got home I emailed the resort and asked them how they did it.
They promptly emailed me back and said the scent was an “in-house blend of lavender and mint that their staff constantly sprayed around the lobby.” Well I knew giving my MIL a spray bottle and some essential oils for Christmas wouldn’t be the best idea, so I purchased an essential oil diffuser on Amazon and got to work blending oils.
To make your house smell like a spa, or in this case a fancy hotel in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, here’s what you’ll need –
Here’s what to do –
- Add the oils to the diffuser
- Add water to the fill line in the diffuser
- Turn it on and let the diffuser do it’s work.
It’s as easy as 1-2-3, and in just a few minutes your house will smell incredible! What’s even better is that your house won’t just smell amazing but the oils in the diffuser also add benefits to the air! Use any combination of oils you like but here are the benefits of the two I used.
- Lavender – Calming, relieves anxiety and soothes emotions
- Peppermint – Increases alertness, calms stress and tension
I’m sure we could all use a little less stress in our homes. 🙂 Now I think I’ll sit back and relax and dream about the beaches of Mexico…
