Candles

One of the most heightened senses is our sense of smell. If you smell something that is unbecoming, it is more likely to put you in a bad mood. If you smell a scent that is smooth,clean and fresh such as clean linen or beachy smells, it will emphasize a zen and calm atmosphere.

Find your Green Thumb

Green plants have the ability to produce more oxygen to go into the air and more oxygen leads to a calmed space. The more green plants you have, the more oxygen will be provided. Make sure to avoid plants with flowers because they can take away from the natural smells you amplified in your home. Bonsai or terrariums are the most suitable for this situation.
