  1. I really like the idea of using something like a few tea bags to help improve the smell of the house. It makes sense that this could be a very attractive option for a small space, but I think that with my big rooms it wouldn’t be very effective. I’ll have to look into dedicated fragrance options because DIY solutions haven’t been working as well as I’d hoped.

    1. In big rooms all DIY solutions ought to be scaled but in truth they`re not as efficient as dedicated fragrance options for obvious reasons; glad you`ve liked the tea bag option though ! I would highly recommend simmer pots too !
