The Naturally Scented Home: Creating Traditional Scented Products with a Modern Twist
Any real estate agent will advise you boiling lemons or oranges will provide a "welcome" scent, while masking any unpleasant ones. It works, and drawing from the highly popular tradition of aromatherapy, a top interior designer shows how to keep a home smelling fresh and sweet and pure--emphasizing the use of easy, effective, and 100-percent-natural recipes. Beyond simple solutions to handling nasty odors, from banishing cooking smells to deodorizing a dog's bed, she offers exotic ideas (scented inks, pampering bath oils) for increasing your domestic pleasures. Concoct your own fragrant insecticides, air fresheners, furniture creams, laundry soap, moth bags, and more, and in addition make the most of flowers and incense. A Selection of the Country Home Book Club.
