  • The Importance of Home Fragrances During Christmas

    For many of us, the true meaning of Christmas is not about what we receive or even what we give. It is about the people that we share the holidays with. For some, that could be family and friends, for others, it could be coworkers, clients and vendors. But no matter who you spend most of your time with during the holidays, it is important to make that time as special as possible.

    From the gifts we give, to the cards we write, the holidays become even more special when we put some thought into everything we do. That can even include our home décor and table settings when we invite those we care about over for a meal. Our home is a representation of us and it becomes part of who we are. The way it looks, the way it makes people feel, even the way it smells can say a lot about you.

    Home Fragrances are More Inviting

    Once you have your home decorated for the holiday and you make it warm and inviting, you should take a quick sniff and see how it smells. Does it smell like musty Christmas ornaments that have been in storage for the past year, or does it smell like whatever you have baking in the oven? Deciding on a holiday fragrance for your home is as important as the decorations you hang and the tinsel on the tree. Choose a home fragrance that is seasonal and your home will seem that much more cozy and inviting and the smells will bring about memories of Christmas’ past.

    Your guests will appreciate the fragrance as well as they arrive for dinner parties, holiday get togethers or intimate gatherings among close friends. The smells of pine, cinnamon, cloves and more can turn your home into a holiday showplace where guests will be excited visit. You can even strategically place different holiday home fragrances in different rooms of your home so you can sample the many scents the season has to offer. Stronger scents in the bathroom and high traffic area, while scents that are softer should be placed in the kitchen and eating areas.

  • The Benefits of Home Fragrances

    When we visit friends and family, the first thing we notice when welcomed into their home isn’t the way it looks or even what they are wearing, it is the way it smells. Our sense of smell is very powerful and it is an important extension of our brain. Certain smells can mean danger, some can create a feeling of comfort and some can even make us hungry or romantic. In fact, our sense of smell is one of our bodies first receptors to initiate a response to our surroundings.

    This is the reason that many of us add specialty fragrances to our homes. We can create a welcoming atmosphere for guests or after a hard day’s work. Coming home to a familiar smell can release endorphins that make us feel good and can provide some much-needed energy. Some typical home fragrances that have very specific benefits include:

    • Lavender-can help us fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer as well as calming our nerves.
    • Peppermint-can give us more energy, provide mental focus and alleviate stress.
    • Cinnamon-this scent is very effective at reducing fatigue and making us more alert.
    • Citrus tones-improve the mood, increase concentration are often associated with a clean home.

    We can use the power of scent to our advantage almost anywhere we are. IN the car, at home or at the office, the atmosphere we create begins with the scents we use. Choose productivity related scents for the office and get more done. In the car, choose scents that will help you focus and stay alert. Even at home, we can use the power of scent to our advantage by creating a calming oasis that will welcome us, and our guests, home.
