There’s nothing like the smell of the warm season coming in, and it’s not just because we get to enjoy all the fresh scents. The summer scent evokes memories of long, lazy days and picnics in the park. And with it comes the smell of a new atmosphere and fruity fragrances.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite ideas for incorporating fruits into your home for a summery, fresh scent. From fragrant candles to diffuser blends, you will be able to do this at home no matter your skill level.
Make candles from fruits
Candles are a great way to add a fresh scent to your home for summer, and you can even find some scented with fruits! You can use fresh or frozen fruit to make your candles, and for best results, you should let the fruit macerate for a few hours before using it to make your candles. You can also add alcohol to help the fruit smell stay longer.
You don’t have to be a candle maker to create scented candles with fruits. To make a fruit candle, you can use your favourite fruit preserves, fruit puree, or even juice. You can also get creative with your moulds and scents, even making themed scented moulds. Moulds can be found in many craft stores, and they’re great for creating candles shaped like fruit or flowers.
Incorporate diffuser blends
If you have a scented diffuser, add some fruit blends for an extra fresh scent. You can find a variety of combinations from different sources or make your own fragrance by adding just one or two fruity elements to create a light and sweet blend.
You can even use fresh or frozen fruit, and for best results, let your fruit macerate for a few hours before using it to make your blends. You can also add coconut or olive oil to your mixes to add a creamy texture. When all is done, use your diffuser’s mist function to create a fruity, flowery mist for your home.
Make a fruity body powder
This is an easy and simple project you can do to add a fruity scent to your home. Combine your favourite dehydrated fruit or fruit puree with a homemade body powder, and then mix the two.
Use it as a dry body powder for a light, and sweet scent or a wet body wash for a more natural scent. If you want to take it a step further, you can make a scrub for your feet or other areas.
This is an easy and inexpensive project that you can do for a fresh scent in your home or a gift for someone else. It is an excellent option for those planning a bridal shower activity to do in Singapore. The shared activity can make a great bonding experience with a souvenir that everyone can bring home at the end of the day.
You can also use this as a craft project for kids, so they can learn about mixing ingredients and creating something new. It’s an excellent project for them, and they can even help you add the components once they get the hang of it.
