So, you’ve probably made the effort to make your home LOOK like Christmas, but does it smell like it? You’d be amazed at how much the combination of the two is capable of bringing forth the warmest of nostalgic memories.
Here are 7 Easy Ways to Make Your Home Smell Just Like Christmas!
Simmer Up a Pot of Christmas Spirit
This is one of the easiest, most fun ways to help scent your home with the smell of the holidays. You simply need to take a pot of water and add an assortment of whatever scents you enjoy the most during this time of year.
Examples included oranges, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and various other mulling spices. Just don’t forget to keep an eye on it, and to add water as needed.
Bake Your Favorite Cookies
Yes, something as simple as baking cookies, when combined with your fabulous Christmas décor, will take away the bah from just about any humbug. My personal favorite type of cookie to bake during the holiday season is rosemary shortbread.
Pine-Scented Candles – You Need Them
They don’t have to be pine-scented, but that is definitely a first contender in my own home as far as holiday-scented candles go. They’re quite simply the easiest way to spread Christmas cheer to every nostril that happens to visit your home over the next few weeks.
Holiday Scented Hand and Dish Soap
Washing your hands and dishes is one of the most mundane things we have to do each day, so why not let at least one aspect of doing so include a little holiday cheer? Nowadays they even make holiday scented general cleaning sprays (really), and I maybe sometimes buy in bulk so I can enjoy them throughout the year. Don’t judge me.
Shower Yourself in Christmas
This one might be my favorite… almost. Did you know that you can tie a bundle of dried herbs above your shower head? Doing so will cause your bathroom to become scented with those herbs as the hot water steams the room. Just don’t forget that you placed them there when the holiday season is over!
