How Aromatherapy Can Help To Sell Your Home

The term ‘Aromatherapy’ came about in the 1920’s, when a French chemist accidentally discovered that lavender oil relieves pain and assists in the healing of burns.

Today, Aromatherapy is used for a range of beauty and healing purposes. But that’s not all – it can also be a fantastic tool when selling your home.

Why aromatherapy?

The term ‘Aromatherapy’ came about in the 1920’s, when a French chemist accidentally discovered that lavender oil relieves pain and assists in the healing of burns.

Today, Aromatherapy is used for a range of beauty and healing purposes. But that’s not all – it can also be a fantastic tool when selling your home.

Why aromatherapy?

Studies have shown the first thing people notice when they walk into a home is the smell. In fact, people form an impression within the first 30 seconds, so making time to create an inviting and pleasant aroma is really important.

Aromatherapy is an effective way to help eliminate pet or cooking odours, whilst also setting the mood for an open home or viewing. It’s all part of the experience…

So, why not use the buyer’s senses to your advantage…especially their sense of smell?!

How?

Set the mood for your home by the use of Essential Oils or candles that include essential oils. If the home is small, you may want to limit the scents to one or possibly two. If the home is larger however, you can set the mood for each of the major areas of the home.

Some examples include:-

• Lavender Oil – Has a calming effect and would be ideal to set the mood for a master bathroom or bedroom.

• Bergamot – Has a fresh, sweet, citrus scent that is familiar to many as the flavouring in Earl Gray.

• Lemon or Citrus – A clean, refreshing scent ideal for a kitchen, bathroom, or dining area.

• Peppermint – A cooling scent and that would be great on a hot summer day in the kitchen or main areas of the home.

• Balsam Fir – This has a soothing effect and works well in the holidays, in the main areas of the home.

• Jasmine – A warm, exotic floral fragrance that creates a feeling of “romance”; ideal for the master bath or bedroom.

My favourite way of bringing aromatherapy into the home is through the use of Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and a diffuser, which creates a subtle ambiance, without overwhelming the senses.
