How to Bring Eco-Scents into the Bedroom

Your bedroom is your oasis from the world. It’s a place of peace, reflection, and, in a perfect world, sleep. There are many practical things you can do to create a “greener” room that reflect the type of planetary caretaker you want to be. Did you know, though, that many of these things involve the fragrance of your room?

It’s no surprise that fragrance enhances mood. Bringing fragrances into your bedroom is a great way to create the atmosphere you’re attempting to foster in your bedroom without investing a lot of money. However, choosing earth-friendly fragrances allows you to rest a little easier without a prickling conscience over your fragrance choices.

Choose Eco-Friendly Candles

Candles are an excellent way to make your room smell heavenly. There are many brands on the market in a wide variety of fragrances. However, most of the mass market candle brands are not exactly “earth friendly.”

Many candles are made with chemicals and other potentially harmful ingredients. You specifically want to avoid candles made with paraffin wax as they produce a great deal of smoke and aren’t very healthy. They also leave a residue on walls and window treatments you’ll have to remove frequently. According to TheEcologist.org, beeswax is a good, natural choice that is non-allergenic, non-toxic, and smoke-free.

Use Plants for Fragrance

If your goal is to bring natural fragrance into your bedroom, you can’t go wrong by introducing plants like jasmine or lavender into your bedroom. To use them as plant therapy, place them on your bedside table to promote sleep and provide a pleasant scent throughout the day.

Get Ride of Chemical Odors

Replace plugin scented oil warmers and refills with essential oil sachets. Get rid of chemical air freshening sprays, and choose earth-friendly paint for your bedroom walls and trim that have no VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

Change Your Mattress

The simple addition of a natural latex mattress to your bedroom goes a long way towards eliminating offgassing among mattresses that contain petrochemicals, and making your bedroom a much greener place to sleep at night. Natural latex is made from the sap of rubber trees. Latex mattresses are all-natural, 100 percent recyclable, and will last twenty years or longer.

Mix up Your Cleaning Routine

Get rid of chemical cleaners and dusters in the bedroom, too. Instead, use natural cleaning products like vinegar and baking soda to clean your room from top to bottom. The difference is not only earth friendly, but also wallet-friendly.

You don’t have to go out of your way to make positive changes that will have a lasting impact on the planet. These small changes can make a huge difference while also helping you turn your bedroom into a place your olfactories truly appreciate.
