Jasmine is one of the most popular fragrant indoor plants, together with lavender. Aside from its beautiful appearance, jasmine is easy to grow. Place it in a spot where it can get full sun, and don’t forget to water it at least once a week or when the soil is dry.
Lavender is one of the top choices for bedroom plants because of its calming effect. It’s a low-maintenance plant, so it’s perfect for beginners. It appreciates full sun, but be careful when choosing a location for your lavender plant since it’s toxic to pets. Water only when the soil is dry.
Plumeria is one of our favorite fragrant indoor plants because of its Hawaiian vibe. Plumeria thrives under full, direct sunlight. Water only when the soil is dry, and feed it with houseplant fertilizer diluted to half-strength every two weeks during spring and summer.
One of the most common fragrant indoor plants that can easily be grown during summer and winter. Mints require lots of full sunlight or a grow light to thrive. Keep the soil moist at all times.
Paperwhites are beautiful holiday plants. You must have seen it as a gorgeous centerpiece last Christmas dinner. Paperwhites need bright, direct sun indoors, and keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy.
If you want a gentle, earthy scent, then we suggest adding geraniums into your home. It comes in different colors and scents. It’s best to place it on a windowsill where it can get direct, full sun. Geraniums are known to be extremely drought-tolerant, so be careful not to overwater.
Unlike jasmine and lavender, gardenia can be a bit high maintenance, but its beautiful full, snow-white blooms are definitely worth the extra TLC. It loves direct sunlight and humid environment, so it’s best to mist it regularly or place it on a pebble tray. Keep the soil moist, but don’t overwater.
