So I miss having a house that is all yummy smelling! Our house now is very open and nothing fills the room.



Dh got me really really beautiful and great quality reed diffusers.
Diamond candles, Yankee candles, bath and body works candles, wax melts.




I don't know what else I can get to fill the place with yummy smells :(



Ideas?

You could do oranges or lemons...rosemary, lavender. It would smell so good :)

Those warmers get pricey! I am super picky and the one I liked was like 50 bucks :?
