Can essential oils help sell my house?

Innovative real estate agents know that a potential buyer is more likely to make a big purchase if there's a pleasant background fragrance. Many realtors will bake a batch of cookies before having an open house but it's time consuming and when you're running around setting things up it can backfire-- and your cookies are burnt.

A surefire way to have a pleasant smell that's easy to set up and has consistent results is diffusing high quality essential oils. Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils are all natural with no chemicals or fillers so your clients will feel relaxed and refreshed when they step into your home.

Diffusing essential oils creates a comforting, deliciously scented ambient atmosphere for your potential clients.

DoTERRA essential oils offer a potent and practical way to use scent marketing to move buyers to feel good about a property. Using even tiny amounts of familiar, tempting aromas like cinnamon, clove and orange, can fill a whole house with pleasant ambient fragrance. In today's market you have to be one step ahead of your competition and thinking creatively is a way to make you stand out.

Smell is the strongest of the senses and has been proven to influence brain activity. The sense of smell is part of the limbic system and directly connects to the areas of the brain that process emotion, learning, and decision making. This close connection between aroma and emotion becomes obvious in our everyday life as certain odors trigger memories or specific feelings.

This is why certain scents can trigger a memory to remind us of something or someone.
