7 Natural Ways To Prep A Guest Room
Avocado Mattress Let’s start with the actual mattress in your guest room. Truth by told, if your guest room mattress is un-sleep-worthy, no amount of candles or fresh bedding will help your friends and family get comfortable during their stay! One of the best green brands in the business, Avocado makes a natural mattress in a range of styles that will last the test of time. Avocado mattresses are free from the off-gassing chemicals many conventional beds contain — the last thing we want near us while we rest! If you invest in nothing else for guests, make it a good mattress for a solid night’s sleep.
Seasons Sonic 2.0 Diffuser | (Shown at top) Pop this gorgeous diffuser bedside and fill it with homey, calming oils like lavender, cedar or palo santo. Have the diffuser running when guests arrive for a welcoming scent that’ll make them feel welcome, cozy and at ease. Not only do essential oils have beneficial mind-body properties, they’re also much safer than candles. Find a few of our favorite seasonal oils HERE.
