We often choose low-maintenance plants with beautiful leaves and flowers checking whether they are suitable for our homes. But today we’d like to talk about the most fragrant indoor plants that can not only decorate your house but also make it smell amazing.
Subtle, sophisticated or heavy and overwhelming, and sometimes very unpleasant, the scent of plants can drastically change the atmosphere in the house. This is why it’s so important to choose the right ones.

Indoor roses have no less delightful scent than the outdoor ones. They often are more fragrant due to the abundance of flowers and the limited amount of air in the room, in which you can feel essential oils better.
The scent of a blooming rose reduces stress and fatigue, helps to normalize metabolism, reduces appetite, and helps to cope with various respiratory diseases.
You can grow this elegant plant both in the garden and indoors. Different species have different scents: from light floral to strong and spicy. Some varieties have a very strong scent and shouldn’t be grown indoors. It is best to choose large-flowered jasmine for your home. Adult plants bloom from spring to autumn with large white flowers and a pleasant aroma. It is these flowers that are often added to green tea.
Murraya is rarely found indoors so far. This shrub can look like a small tree. The flowers are very fragrant. They are white and look as if they’re coated in wax. The plant can bloom all year round. Murraya has a delicate jasmine scent. But, if there are a lot of flowers, it is better to keep the flowerpot in the room where no one sleeps or spends a lot of time.© Depositphotos
