  • The home is a safe space where we can all relax after a long and tiring day. To make it as cozy as possible, we need to keep it clean, organized, and free from unpleasant scents that make it uninviting. Aside from washing and cleaning some of your essentials to avoid funky odors, you may also want to allocate a portion of your budget to refreshing home scents that can add to the overall appeal of your home.

    From scented candles to calming room sprays, there are different products available in malls that can help you create a soothing ambiance reminiscent of spas. The best part? You don’t need to spend over Php700 unless you want to invest in diffusers and air purifiers.
