Fall is upon us and what a wonderful time of year it is! A time to make your home smell divine with all the wonderful smells of the upcoming Holidays. It’s a time when cooler weather starts as well. Everyone starts having mugs of hot cocoa (with marshmallows) or tea and pulling out big chunky sweaters, warm slippers, and soft cozy blankets to cover up with.
Wherever you go, whether shopping or out for dinner, the autumn air is filled with sweet baking aroma and holiday spices. Best of all, most of us enjoy our Holidays with homecooked meals with lots of family around. Your senses play such a huge part of enjoying autumn in my modest opinion. Without the scent of fireplaces keeping you warm, the chill in the air, and the abundance of delicious food, autumn just isn’t the same.
Since the shop opened, I have really enjoyed creating new Essential oil blends for all sorts of things. My favorites blends are the ones I create for Fall. They really bring back memories for me, whether it was watching my grandmother make pumpkin pie, being able to recall the scent of candy canes or that hot cocoa, to the smell of the Christmas tree when you bring it home and put it up. Essential oils have the amazing ability to take you back to the best moments in time.
I love having a home that smells good all year but especially during the Fall and Holiday season. In today’s post, I wanted to share with you some blends that you will love to try out that will help your home smell wonderful!!
