Scents of the Season
Some of the most wonderful things about the holidays are the smells. Nothing beats the piny scent of a freshly cut Christmas tree or a home filled with the sweet smells of holiday baking. Add some cinnamon sticks and peppermint candies and you have a well rounded array of aroma perfect for cuddling up in front of a fire and letting go of stresses of the year.
There are a lot of people who would love to have their homes filled with the aroma of baked goods and a glorious fresh cut pine tree. Yet the reality of the holiday hustle can sometimes get in the way of those homemade scents. When that happens, many people unknowingly reach for air freshener sprays and candles to add some nostalgia and scent their holiday air. Unfortunately, these synthetic scents actually contain extremely hazardous toxins that can cause a wide-array of health problems, especially for those with respiratory issues.
This holiday we invite you to celebrate the season with some of our favorite warm and cozy scents. Perfect for gifting and blending, our Holiday Scent Collection will invoke all the special memories that scents can bring in your own home, or a home of someone you care about.
