Are you as excited about cooler air and the upcoming holidays as I am??? Is your house ready for you to enjoy family and friends, relax and entertain? Have you thought about scents for the season? Terrific scents for the season can completely transform your family’s holiday experience.
Why Bother With Scents for the Season?
The sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more so than any of our other senses. Those with full olfactory function may be able to think of smells that evoke particular memories; the scent of an orchard in blossom conjuring up recollections of a childhood picnic, for example. This can often happen spontaneously, with a smell acting as a trigger in recalling a long-forgotten event or experience.
In addition to being the sense most closely linked to memory, smell is also highly emotive. The perfume industry is built around this connection, with perfumers developing fragrances that seek to convey a vast array of emotions and feelings; from desire to power, vitality to relaxation. (source)
Now that you know this, you can put this science to work in your home to help you better enjoy the holiday season by putting scents for the season to work for you!
Scents for the Season Make Your Home Smell Like You’re Toiling Away In the Kitchen
Essential oils over the holidays are terrific if you don’t want to be in the kitchen (or even if you don’t belong in the kitchen!) but you want your home to smell like you’ve been toiling away for days! Even if you have everything prepared ahead of time and just toss it in the oven or on the table when it’s time – there’s just something about having that fresh baked aroma floating through the house. And certain aromas just bring to mind baking during cold weather. My favorite essential oils for this feeling are: Orange, Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg, and Sage.
Scents for the Season Make Your Home Smell Like a Fresh Christmas Tree
Many people don’t have the space or time to put up a live Christmas tree, or maybe you celebrate a holiday other than Christmas. Either way, one of the best scents for the season has to be the scent of conifers. The best of the best: Pine; Idaho Balsam Fir; and Northern Lights Black Spruce.
