There’s something about that “beginning of spring” smell.

You know which one we’re talking about – that clean, fresh scent that sends a biological signal to your brain to trigger more energy, excitement and the urge to renew and revitalize your life.

To us, that smell defines spring. So this year, in addition to spring cleaning (grab that Swiffer), look into more meaningful ways to bring spring into your life and get as much of those fresh, clean scents as possible.

The original air freshener

Flowers – which aren’t just for special occasions – are great for boosting your mood and filling your home with aromatic goodness and color. If your nose is easily overwhelmed by air fresheners, flowers can provide a softer, subtler scent.

Purify with plants

Yes, they need a little care, but plants aren’t just for decoration. Peace lilies, palms and ferns remove impurities from the air and replace them with pure, clean oxygen.

Soak up the sun

Temperature plays a huge role in how we perceive scents. In fact, a lot of that classic spring aroma comes from the thawing soil we haven’t smelled in months. Try opening your windows and doors on warmer days to let the sunlight and fresh air in.

Freshen up fast

There’s really no easier way to shed winter odors and give your home a fresh start than with Febreze's Spring Collection. Spray some airy scents into linens, freshen the living room with a candle or spray literally everything in your teenager’s room when he’s not looking.
