Bring the Outside in: Happy Home Scenting
Posted by PR Neom, Apr 26, 2021
It’s officially spring, and there’s nothing like the natural mood lift of seeing bulbs popping up, and blossom appearing after a long winter. But the weather still feels a bit fresh some days so while we’re not quite ready for long days in the sun, there are certain essential oils to look out for that give you that outside in feeling, at the touch of a button in a Wellbeing Pod, or burning away in a natural scented candle while you spring clean. After all, while we love creating a cosy winter haven it’s definitely time to switch on that sunny PMA. Here’s how to choose your outside in vibes:
The vibe: Fresh and green
The wellbeing boost: Happy feels
Look for: Neroli
There’s nothing like throwing a window open and smelling fresh cut grass on the air, it really says SUNSHINE and puts us in a positive frame of mind. So we recreated that with a blend of sweet and fresh neroli, which comes from the same plant as orange blossom. The combination of honeyed and invigorating citrus scents really says sunny morning and is perfect for replacing comforting winter candles with fresh, uplifting blends, and transitioning your cosy haven into a light, open one.
Find it in:
The vibe: Peaceful
The wellbeing boost: calming and relaxing
Look for: Rose
Rose oil is super sought-after for a reason - not only does it smell great and instantly transport you to a lush garden, but it’s super calming too. We use wild rose in our Moment of Calm fragrance which is light and fragrant, and Moroccan blush rose in Complete Bliss which is rich, deep and blended with punchy black pepper to remind you of a warm night somewhere far flung. Both of these pair with the relaxing watery sound of your Wellbeing Pod beautifully to create a totally chilled atmosphere.

Wild rose: Moment of Calm
Moroccan blush rose: Complete Bliss
The vibe: Nordic
The wellbeing boost: Motivating and mental clarity
Look for: Pine
We love a walk or finding nature for clearing the mind, but when hillside forests are out of reach, you can get the same boost in your home with pine, cedarwood and eucalyptus. Not only bringing clarity but cleaning the air too, a literal blast of fresh air into your home. Pine and eucalyptus can also help you breathe easier, too - banishing wintery congestion from your space.
Find it in:
The vibe: An exotic paradise
The wellbeing boost: de-stressing
Look for: Ylang ylang
Some days call for escaping a little further away, and for this we look to ylang ylang. Grown in Madagascar, it’s floral, sweet and heady, and conjures up a dreamy paradise filled with heady scents and a warm breeze. It has wellbeing benefits too, relieving anxiety and promoting relaxation. Expertly blended with vetivert and tonka bean, it’s a holiday romance in a bottle, ready to sweep you off to your tropical destination of choice from your living room.
Find it in:
The vibe: A sunny grove
The wellbeing boost: A boost of energy
Look for: Lemon or grapefruit
Nothing takes you to sunny climes faster than a hit of invigorating, citrussy goodness. Our lemon oil is from Sicily, but it just as easily brings up vibes from the South of France or any other Mediterranean holiday you’ve been on (or are dreaming of). And lemon oil is known for its mood-lifting properties too, so it will help you feel just as breezy as you do on holiday.
