If you have access to an essential oil diffuser, turn it on ASAP. Be sure to drop a generous amount of oil in the diffuser to further mask the weed smell. Bonus points if you use an essential oil that naturally smells like a plant, like eucalyptus, tea tree oil, or rosemary.

Matches won’t eliminate the weed smell, but it does a pretty good job of masking it. Take 2-3 matches and light them at once. Let them burn for a few seconds, then blow them out. Spread excess smoke coming from the matches around the room.

Coffee is one of the most inviting aromas humans can smell, especially those that love drinking it. Consider brewing a cup of strong coffee, even if you’re not drinking it. Let the hot coffee sit in the area that danks the most. You could also place ground coffee beans on a dish for extra aroma.

If you’re friends with a spiritual aficionado who loves burning incense, grab a stick and light it up. Incense emits different aromas into the air. It won’t eliminate the weed smell, but it will mask it. Light the incense stick and walk around the room to disperse it. This also works with sage.

Ceiling fans or plug-in fans will work just fine. Even handheld fans will help in this situation. Weed smell is a heavy aroma that lingers if you’re not proactive. Using a fan will help disperse the aroma to ventilate the room and get it smelling back to normal.

Perhaps the most obvious sign that someone just smoked weed in the house is smelling an excess of body spray in the air with an underlying hint of marijuana.
We left this tip for last because it should be the last option. It will mask some of the weed smell, but it also may give you a headache if sprayed in large amounts.
