The last thing you want to come home to on a chaotic day is a stressful room. In order for us to function, we need our space to be a place where we can unwind, breathe deep and just relax. The following are the things you 100% need to invest in so that you, too, can enjoy coming home.

A diffuser

This may be the most important part of “zen”-ing out your space. There is never a time when we don’t have our diffuser on. By diffusing your favorite essential oil, you will start to feel calm right away. Our favorite for an ultimate wind down? Lavender essential oil from Vitruvi. Trust us, your mood will thank us.

Echo Dot

What’s more relaxing than calming music? After a high stress day, it’s nice to be able to just let some instrumental music take you away. Call us cheesy, but our favorite Spotify playlist has to be the Yoga & Meditation playlist. A close second is Saxophone Jazz. That’s why our roommates are hearing us yell to our echo dot, “Alexa… play my calming playlist on Spotify” when we get home every day.

Yummy smelling cleaning supplies

A clean space is a happy space. There are actually scientific studies done on this… a clean room ACTUALLY benefits your health. It will make you happier, you’ll sleep better and it creates feelings of accomplishment and positivity. If we have to clean, we like to use supplies that leave a delicious scent that reminds us that we got the job DONE.

Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Kitchen Basics Set, Lavender Cleaning Supplies - Clean, inexpensive, and makes our surfaces smell amazing.

Candles

If there’s one thing you know about the We Heart It team, you know we freaking love candles. Just lighting a candle boosts our mood, and also makes your space look gorgeous.

Air purifying plants

Did you know that plants can remove pollutants in the air when you keep them in your home? Well, they can and they are amazing. We recommend for starters, to keep a spider plant in your home. They’re super easy to take care of and remove pollutants like formaldehyde and xylene.

What do you use to make your place feel like a zen garden?!
