The holiday is just around the corner and with it all the holidays cheer that you can muster, but if your home is smelling a bit off, you might be hard pressed to find a solution to your woes. Scented sprays are only good for a short period of time. What you need is something lasting and will add to the festive vibe to your home. Fortunately, this is where essential oil blends come in.
Essential oils are extracted from plants and flowers that, when diffused, can help banish smells in a room. They can help improve your mood, and even make you feel calm and relaxed as well. Even for the holiday, there are essential blends that can make your home feel Christmas-y. If you wish to make your home smell like Christmas, these blends are worth trying out:
This should be a no-brainer as pine is often associated with Christmas. The smell of pine inside your home can evoke memories of freshly cut tree to decorate for your home which means that everyone will be in the mood to celebrate.
It doesn’t matter if you are going to use this to liven up your holiday ham, make pomanders, or even add to the mulled wine that you are drinking, clove is yet another essential oil that will make your kitchen and your home smell like the holidays. Another plus to diffusing clove is that it can ease any respiratory issues that you may be having such as a seasonal cold or even flu.
What other essential oil can you use for your home? Cedarwood should be in your list of essential oil blends to use because its woodsy scent is perfect for creating that cozy atmosphere in your space. Diffusing some in your living room, or bedroom for that matter, makes everyone wish to stay indoors, in front of the fire, while the freezing temperature is left outside. This is the perfect time for some bonding moments with your family, don’t you think so?
This may be an odd choice for Christmas, but it does help you stay calm when you are feeling depresses or stressed out because of all the holiday happenings. Diffuse some in your bedroom when you are feeling tired or anxious as the scent will help you calm down easily enough.
