Fake or Real… No Not My Hair Color Silly

Today’s Blog is dedicated to a good friend who was wanting to have her absolutely gorgeous Christmas urn (it has very real looking but totally fake greens in it), smelling like a forest. She told me about these sticks that she stuck into her greens & now by her front door she says it smells like evergreen. Hopefully she will read this & put into the comments what they are & were they can be bought….wink, wink.

With all the fake trees, fake boughs….how the heck do we get pine smells or that country Christmas smell? Well I have a few tricks up my sleeve for the house. We are one of the few people I know that has a real tree but I like a real poignant aroma. For an awesome, pretty real & not over done Yucko fake smell I use Bath & Body Works “Fresh Balsam” 3 Wick Candle, pretty reasonably priced @ 2 for 30.00 & then add a 5.00 silver sleeve & voila, instant purdy & smells good as well.

The next item is Christmas Spirit™ from Young Living Essential Oils. It  is a sweet, spicy blend of orange, cinnamon, and spruce essential oils that tap into the happiness, joy, and security associated with the holiday season. It is made for diffusing in a diffuser.  A diffuser is a combination humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy. Wondering where you can get said items….well me for sure, I am a rep. If you don’t have a diffuser you can sprinkle on logs in the fireplace, on Christmas trees or decorative acorns. You could also put drops into a pan of water on the stove.

K,  a really easy way of getting the Christmas smell in your house is to brew up The Scent of Christmas Jar. You probably have all these ingredients in your home already. It contains 2 lemon wedges, 1 lime slice, 2 orange slices, 3 cinnamon sticks, 2-3 Tbsp. whole cloves, 3 bay leaves.  Pour contents into saucepan on stove top and simmer  on low heat, add water as needed.   Refrigerate to keep fresh.


Start the fireplace, grab a coffee & some Idaho Sweets (Bailey’s) a good book or maybe your Hubahubba &  get your smell on!
