For nat­u­ral fresh­ness, con­sider the mom way … fra­grant flow­ers set in a lovely vase. Col­or­ful blos­soms are also nice float­ing in a crys­tal bowl. Ch­eryl My­ers, owner of the En­chanted Florist in Cape Co­ral, says, “Our bright pink Sor­bonne lilies and Pink Floyd roses, as well as our col­or­ful hy­acinths, are a few fra­grant fa­vorites.”

Scented herbs such as rose­mary, laven­der and basil can be pot­ted and grown in­doors. They can also be dried and tied with twine or rib­bon. Also try plac­ing citrus peels such as or­anges, tan­ger­ines, limes, grape­fruits and lemon in a pretty bowl and set­ting them on the counter. Or sim­mer peels with cin­na­mon sticks and drops of vanilla.

Flame­less can­dles are awe­some, too. Bill Som­mer, the man­ager of Cape Can­dle, says, “Wax pottery bowls of­fer a light fra­grance.”

These beau­ti­ful bowls come in a va­ri­ety of scents that in­clude Seascape Sage and Laven­der Chamomile.
