Top 8 Plants That Smell Amazing

The smell of a plant is one of the most important factors in determining whether it's a good choice for your home. The right scent can make you feel relaxed, cheerful, and happy.

If you're looking for an addition to your home that will boost the ambiance and make you feel better, consider these eight plants that smell amazing:

1.    Sage

Sage has been used for centuries as a herbal remedy for skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, and dandruff. In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, sage contains antioxidants that help protect your skin from UV damage caused by the sun's rays (which may lead to wrinkles). Sage is also commonly used as an ingredient in teas or other drinks because it has a mild flavor that can be added to almost anything!

2.    Basil

Basil is another herb that smells wonderful when growing in your garden or on your windowsill. Basil has many culinary uses so if you don't want your kitchen smelling like basil, be sure not to cook with fresh basil until after you've harvested it for drying or freezing for later use in cooking!

3.    Mints 

Mint is a great plant for the home, office, and garden. It's one of the most popular culinary herbs and can be used in many different ways. Mint is also very easy to grow from seed, so you can even grow it yourself!

Mint has a fresh, sweet aroma that makes it one of the best-smelling plants. It's especially good at masking odors like garbage, pet odors, and cigarette smoke. These makes mint a great choice for pots on your porch or patio, as well as inside your home or office.

4.    Jasmine

Jasmine is another popular plant that smells amazing. It belongs to the same family as citrus trees, but it has an entirely different scent than oranges or lemons. Jasmine has a sweet floral smell that's similar to roses, but not quite as strong. You can use jasmine flowers in teas and other drinks or as part of an arrangement scattered across your home or office desk

5.    Lemon Balm

Lemon balm is another great-smelling plant that you should try growing at least once in your life! It has a very sweet aroma that reminds me of lemonade or something similar! This plant also has many medicinal uses, which makes it even more beneficial to have around!

6.    Orchids

Orchids are one of the most popular plants to grow indoors. They can be found in a wide range of colors, shapes, and sizes, and they’re easy to care for. Orchids are also known for their beautiful blooms.

Orchids are native to tropical regions around the world. Since they don’t like cold temperatures, most people keep them as houseplants. Some varieties need more light than others, so if you have a bright windowsill, you can grow an orchid outdoors during the summer months.

7.    Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is one of the most common houseplants in the world. It’s also one of the easiest to take care of. Aloe plants like bright light, but not direct sunlight. They can be grown indoors year-round and don’t need much water or fertilizer.

Aloe vera produces a very pleasant aroma that can be described as somewhere between pineapple and mint. The scent of aloe vera is not only pleasant, but also relaxing and calming - perfect for relieving stress after a long day at work or school!

8.    Thyme

Thyme is a Mediterranean herb that has a wonderful fragrance. It's easy to grow in pots and can be used as a ground cover. Thyme also attracts bees and butterflies, so it's an excellent plant for your garden!

Thyme can be used as an ingredient in cooking as well as for its medicinal properties. 


Houseplants are a great addition to any home or office. Aside from the fact that they help improve air quality, there are some pretty interesting plants out there with medical benefits. However, these benefits may be overshadowed by the magnificent fragrances that come from them when they bloom.
