The Ultimate Guide to Holiday Scents
The cold winter weather is a sign that it is time to invite a calming and friendly warmth into your surroundings. Create this enviroment with holiday candle scents, potpourri, or essential oils. The scents listed represent the traditional holiday aromas and might stir up a few wonderful memories for you.
The balsam scent is a calming and soothing scent that is perfect for the holidays. Fill burlap sacks with balsam scented potpourri. Next, package up the sacks in holiday ribbons to give as a special scented gifts to friends or simply place them around the home to stir up the holiday spirit.
This is an effortless way to add a sweet and inviting scent to the entire home. Grab several cinnamon sticks and vanilla flavoring. Drop several cinnamon sticks into a pot of water on the stove along with several drops of vanilla flavoring. Bring the cinnamon sticks and vanilla flavoring to a boil and let them simmer for hours, releasing the fresh aroma. Remember, to watch the the mixture carefully and add a bit of water to keep it simmering throughout the day. Cinnamon and vanilla are very calming scents that create a very relaxing atmosphere.
Refreshing Pine Cones
Purchase a bag of pine cones at your local gift shop, supermarket, or discount store. Place them in a decorative bowl and add several drops of pine, eucalyptus, and spruce essential oil to the pine cones. Place the newly scented pine cones in a prominent area to display and release the wintry aroma. Pine and spruce are a very Christmas tree like scent that creates warm memories. Eucalyptus clears the air and creates a healthier breathing environment.
Certainly, the aroma of holiday scented candles places everyone in a good mood. Add lavender, cinnamon, vanilla, pine, wintergreen, spruce, orange, sage, ginger, or peppermint scented candles to your surroundings to create a memorable touch. All the scents mentioned are excellent holiday scents. I especially like peppermint which boost moods and creates a cheerful atmosphere. Sage neutralizes negative energies. Ginger is a warming scent. Orange reduces stress and wintergreen is soothing and very refreshing.
Scented Door Wreaths
Combine scented pine cones (soothing warm scent) with scented balsam (calming) and garland to create a wreath to cordially welcome guest to your home. Add a few red bows and dried fruit for an inviting old fashioned, traditional touch.
For it is in giving that we receive.
