Living in California I have tor really work at getting the scents of the seasons in my life. So here are some of my favorite things I use to get in the season:

 

 

Mistletoe

After Thanksgiving I visit Yankee Candle to buy Mistletoe votives and a Car Jar, an air freshener that makes my car smell amazing!

Tea

 

Trader Joes  has some amazing teas that really reflect the winter season. Cinnamon, Candy Canes and Vanilla!

Celestial Seasons

My favorite holiday tradition is watching The Nutcracker. Celestial seasons created a whole line of teas based on the story and they are all soooo yummy! They are now also selling coffee mugs with the gorgeous are from the boxes. Visit HERE to learn more.

Here are some great ways to use Aromatherapy:

Rosemary

Add a few drops of rosemary oil to unscented hand wash for a wonderful smell and bacterial protection.

Sweet Orange

Add a few drops into a bath, on your wrist or on a handkerchief for a wonderful mood brightening scent.

 

Happy Holidays!
