Create Holiday Scents in Your Home

The holidays are a celebration for the eyes – Christmas lights and beautiful wreaths – and for your taste buds, like cookies, pies, and cakes. But, if you forget about your nose, you’re skipping a seriously festive part of the season. Try these homemade ways to surround yourself in cozy, friendly scents of the season.


Build a Festive Simmer Pot

If you’re hosting a holiday party (and have a burner free on your stove), fill a saucepan with a bit of water and inviting aromatics like cinnamon sticks and apple slices. As the mixture heats, it will fill your home with happy, nostalgic scents.

Try Pine

For a less sweet take on the simmering pot, try one with pine branches as the main ingredient and create the smell of a real Christmas tree.
