27 Miracles Countdown to Christmas Day 18

“Scent for Company”

“To Quickly make your house smell festive, add a tablespoon of  each of these herbs to 2 cups of water. let simmer on low heat in an old pan, taking care not to boil dry cinnamon, bay leaves, sage leaves, rosemary and lavender.”

There is always something nice about walking into a home and smelling the scents of Christmas cookies baking or the scent of a fresh-cut Christmas tree.  In the busy world we live in we don’t always have time to come home from work, picking up kids and bake cookies so that when we walk in the door it smells like Party Flavors, one of the Best Bakeries in town.  So with a little help from a Christmas Cookie candle Scent or Pine Scented candle to give you the smell of fresh-baked cookies or fresh cut Christmas tree, can uplift you.

Merry Christmas

27 Miracles Countdown to Christmas Day 6

“Smell the Season”

” Long ago people cut evergreen boughs to scent their home and brighten dark days.  Continue that tradition-without the mess, by using essential oil of evergreen.  Put a few drops on a terra-cotta tree ornament.  You can find essential oils at health food stores.” Better Homes and Garden

I have a  special terra-cotta ornament that was made by my daughter in school in the shape of a Christmas tree.  I remember the day she brought it home, it smelled like a real Christmas Tree.  Although the scent is long gone,  the memory of  the ornament is like it was yesterday.  I guess you can say I learned something new and I can go and get some evergreen oil and dab it on the ornament to give it that fresh-cut tree smell. I have hand made ornaments to this day from all three kids and each year as I hang them I remember the day they gave it to me and special memories of each child.

Merry Christmas!!!! Make Memories!!
