Why a Natural Christmas Fragrance Is Best For Your Home
Christmas is a time filled with sensory experiences - the sights, sounds and smells are all vital for really getting into the spirit of the season. You've hung your decorations and put on your favourite festive tracks, but how do you get the smell of Christmas into your home? You could go out and buy an air freshener, but these are often full of potentially harmful chemicals. You can light a scented candle, but it's not safe to leave these unattended, especially if you have children around. So how about a natural alternative? One that can be used in a variety of ways to really personalise your Christmas experience.
Tender Essence's Christmas Scent is made with a blend of pure essential oils to give a clean, natural fragrance. This blend contains Frankincense, Cinnamon, Orange and Myrrh - all scents that are associated with the holidays. The spicy warmth of cinnamon and sweet, fruity tang of orange bring the traditional aromas of Christmas, while the woody, citrus scent of Frankincense and earthy Myrrh are tied to the nativity story. Together they create a scent that really evokes that festive feeling.
Essential oils are a very versatile product, and so is this blend. Here are some ways to use it (just don't apply directly to skin):
For a relaxing experience after all the stress of shopping, wrapping, and making those important Christmas preparations, you can add a few drops into the bath and let your troubles wash away.
A great way to fill your home with our Christmas aroma is by using an essential oil diffuser (available here). These break the oils up into a fine mist and disperse it through the air, spreading fragrance. They work without heating and are therefore safe when left unattended, unlike candles. Alternatively, you can put a few drops on your radiators (so long as they're not electric), and they'll start to fill your home with warmth and fragrance.
This product can also be used to make cosmetics, which is perfect if you're looking to give more personal gifts this year. Handmade presents are always appreciated, and are a good way to lower costs - we know Christmas can be expensive. There's plenty of examples on our blog of things you can make - candles, soaps, and bath melts would all make great gifts!
If you'd like to have a go at creating your own festive blend, we also have a Christmas set available, which includes four individual oils - Cinnamon, Frankincense, Orange, and Peppermint - allowing you to mix to your heart's content!
