10 Natural Ways to Make Your Home Smell Like Christmas
1. Stovetop Potpourri
- Simmering spices, berries, pine needles, and whole cloves in a saucepan will bring the woodsy aroma of a winter forest into your home.
2. Palo Santo Bundles
- This could be a case of literal good fortune for you. The aroma of pine and lemons wafts forth when these smudge sticks are lit.
- The urban legend has it that when you place one in your home, it will bring good fortune, inspire creativity, and dispel any negative energy.
3. Scented Candles with Citrus and Spice Aromas
- Cardamom essential oils, cinnamon bark, and clove buds are the components that contribute to the aroma of this candle that was poured by hand.
- The soy wax that has been melted is transformed into a lovely present when it is placed in a copper basin.
4. Decorative Cinnamon Birds
- Gingerbread birds scented with cinnamon and apple will be a delightful addition to your holiday tree
- Use glitter and beads to adorn the ornament. They may not be edible, but their aroma is tantalizing.
5. Scent-Rich Firelighters
6. Greenery Wreaths
- Optimal holiday décor not only looks lovely, but also has a pleasant aroma.
- Create these beautiful wreaths with foliage clippings; for example, bay laurel and rose hips are a perfect match, while rosemary and eucalyptus seedpods are a lovely combination.
- These little wreaths are lovely because they are uncomplicated: you can simply hang them in a window, and the aroma will fill the room right away.
7. Pleasant Pinecone Aroma
- You may be surprised to hear that pinecones collected while hiking can be adorned with aromatic oils and kept as houseplants.
- Their mild, spice-forward aroma is just right for the season. Put them to good use in a wreath, potpourri bowl, or festive garland.
8. Balsam Sachets
- Satsuma Seasonal sachets can be made by stuffing aromatic dried balsam into muslin bags imprinted with an evergreen design.
- These bags, which are perfect for storing clothes or linens, are easy to create and can be found here.
- Gather several muslin bags (found in health food stores and on the internet) and stuff them with a piece of cardboard.
- After the evergreen rubber stamp and light-green ink pad have dried, stamp the design onto the bag.
- To make a shadow effect, repeat with a dark-green inkpad and let it to dry.
- Attach a little gift tag with a personalized inscription to one of the bag’s handles.
- Once the bag is full of dried balsam, tie it shut by pulling the ties taut.
9. Balls for Threaded Pomanders
- Not only do these pomander balls look beautiful when they are put in bowls, but they also emit a festive aroma that is reminiscent of citrus spices.
- All you need is beading string, whole dried cloves, and a combination of oranges, grapefruits, and lemons; they’re also really simple to construct. The four simple stages to making this ornament are as follows:
- Space the cloves evenly around the citrus fruits’ perimeter and insert them at the points of an arrow, diamond, or any other shape.
- Secure the end of the string around the clove’s head, making sure to leave a two-inch tail.
- To shape the clove heads, wrap rope around each one. It may be necessary to retie the string to an alternate clove after a couple of shapes if the pattern in question (such as a diamond) requires it.
- Reverse the process of wrapping the string around the cloves and return to the beginning. Join the beginning knot with the tail and the end of the cord. Remove any extra length.
10. Tangerine Orchids
- On Christmas morning, nothing beats rushing down the stairs (in the direction of the tree!) to be welcomed by the wonderful aroma of oranges.
- You may use either fresh or dried citrus fruit slices in this Christmas garland; we opted for fresh bay leaves.
- In between the citrus fruits, use floral wire to attach little bunches of these leaves and kumquats. Finally, finish it off with ribbon.
