So, if you are ready to make your home smell like the holidays, say no more! Whether you have family visiting or the neighbors dropping by a gift, your house is going to smell just like the Christmas (and will probably make everyone want to stay the night). Hacks to Make Your House Smell Amazing For The Holidays

1. Use Fresh Pine Scenticles

If you love the scent of fresh pine without all the mess of pine needles, these scenticles are genius! They smell amazing and can easily be hidden in your fake tree or around your home.

Scenticles are green stick ornaments in a jar that smell like freshly cut pine.

3. Fill Your Diffuser Up with Holiday Essential Oil Scents

Diffuse a blend of essential oils in your home and it will smell amazing in just minutes! Our favorite holiday blend is:

  • 3 drops of Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
  • 3 drops of Clove Essential Oil
  • 3 drops of Orange Essential Oil

Using an essential oil diffuser, usually in a solution of water, can help make your home good and have health benefits. Not a fan of cinnamon?

Use a few drops of peppermint instead!
