Essential Oils for Fighting Kitchen Smells - How to use essential oils to clear the air after cooking 

I’ve written before about how the layout of my home keeps lets smells from my kitchen flow all over the house.

Some times, that’s great. The sweet scent of chocolate chip cookies? Yes, please!

But the off-putting smell of bacon grease that lingers in the air for days after cooking? Nope. It’s too much for my nose.

That’s when I turn to my favorite essential oils and my diffuser to break up the scent in the air.

I’ve found that essential oils in the citrus or herbal family seem to be the toughest at clearing up greasy kitchen smells and keeping the air really fresh.

Herbal oils


Tea Tree




Citrus oils







Flowery oils clash with cooking smells for me, while spicy scents, like cinnamon, just have a way of blending in.

The exception to the “no flower rule” is lavender oil. Because of its subtle scent, lavender often ties the herbal and citrus oils together.
