Once you've set up your Christmas tree and displayed your well-loved holiday decorations, you would immediately feel the familiar and comforting vibe that the merry season is known for. While twinkling lights and charming accents can make you giddy, you shouldn't stop there!
Aside from styling the home, you can also work with a few heartwarming scents that will surely complete the festive vibe. These fragrances can also make your space seem more inviting and perfect for a family reunion and a few get-togethers! Consider these must-dos before Christmas:
Opt for natural and refreshing scents.
It's much better to work with natural scents than rush to the mall to buy air fresheners. To create a lovely holiday scent, place orange peels and cinnamon on a pot of water. Let it simmer and once you're done, transfer it into stylish mason jars. These can be part of your centerpiece and living room decor, too.
Craft your own reed diffuser.
Reed diffusers give off scents that last longer! Create one using essential oils—try mixing vanilla and chamomile for a sweet scent that guests would love.
Choose scented candles.
Scented candles can serve as part of your decor, too. Place two or three candles in a tray and use it as a centerpiece. Choose vanilla or peppermint candles for a sweet Yuletide touch.
While we can't have actual pine trees at home, you can work with pine-scented candles. Put two candles on a table in the living area. Light it up during Noche Buena for a relaxing, cozy vibe.
