Easy and Economical Ways to Make Your House Smell Like Christmas

Ho! Ho!

The most wonderful time of the year is here and we can’t help start celebratory preparations! We are sure you have already lit up the Christmas tree, sent invites to family and friends, and decked up your heavenly abode with festive décor. But, what are you doing about making your home smell like Christmas? 

Not thought of anything yet? Well, fret not. We bring you simple and affordable tips to spread the scent of Christmas and usher in holiday happiness.

  • Bake Christmas Goodies
  • What better smell than the aroma of Christmas cake, cookies, and other sinful treats wafting through the air from your kitchen? It will make your nostrils flare with nostalgia about grandma’s hand-baked goodies for Yuletide. We bet you can never get enough of Christmas bakes and their wonderful aroma!

  • Light up Scented Candles
  • We all know that candlelight creates a cozy and lovely ambience.  But, these days, candles are available in delightful scents, fragrances, and colors to create a more magical atmosphere. Light up a few candles around the house and let their whiff delight your olfactory senses.

    You can consider buying oriental scented candles from Hem Fragrances.

  • Get Creative with Essential Oils
  • Put a few drops of your favorite essential oils in different types of oil diffusers and place them strategically around the home. You can even mix the essential oil with dried herbs and flowers to make a potpourri. Another way to use essential oils is to scent pine cones and display them in a decorative bowl. You can also make essential oil sachets and put them in your wardrobe closets and kitchen shelves or cupboards.

    Essential oil deodorizes the air and gives your home a Christmassy feel and smell. You can buy essential oils in different fragrances such as lemongrass, tea tree, orange, rosemary, and others from Hem Fragrances.

  • Craft Pomander Balls
  • How about getting a little artsy to add a Noel touch to your home? Pick some oranges and decorate them with cloves. You can hang these DIY pomander balls as ornaments or use them in garlands. The subtle natural citrusy scent from oranges will make your home smell divinely fruity.

  • Make DIY Room Fragrance
  • Throw in an apple, cinnamon sticks, cloves, nutmeg, citrus fruit peels, vanilla and other fragrant herbs in water in a saucepan or a slow cooker. Simmer this water mixture low and slow for 30 minutes to one hour. Let it cool down and fill it in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture wherever you want - its sweet and spicy odor will permeate all nooks and corners of your home. 

    In case you are short of time to make this spray, you can buy air fresheners in enchanting scents from Hem Fragrances.

  • Burn Aromatic Incense and Cones
  • Incense sticks and backflow cones not only enliven the mood and character of your home but also spread pleasant fragrance. They diffuse in the air quickly, leaving a wonderful smell. The beauty of these incense sticks and cones is that they are available in a variety of scents such as rose, lavender, French vanilla, Palo Santo, white sage, sandal cinnamon, and jasmine among a few others. You can buy all these varieties from Hem Fragrances.

    We hope you liked these ideas and will incorporate them into your festive décor this season.

    Merry Christmas!
