Fragrant Indoor Plants to Add to Your Tropical Oasis

To truly feel like you’ve brought the outside in, be sure to include plants with fragrant leaves or blossoms. Plants such as rosemary, mint, verbena, and bee balm have scented leaves, while lavender, jasmine, gardenia, and geraniums have scented blooms.

When creating your indoor oasis, think about your entire space. If you’ve run out of floor space, put plants on some shelves, or stairs, windowsills, and counters. Group plants of different sizes together to create an exciting lush area. For any plants that may be harmful to pets, place them in a hanging planter. The goal is to green up your space and reap the benefits of having a little slice of tropical paradise in your home.
