“IT’S BEGINNING TO SMELL A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!”

There is not doubt that certain smells remind you of the holidays...spiced apple cider, peppermint, and pine trees!  You’ll want several of these to keep on hand in bathrooms, guest rooms, your bedroom and nearby, especially when entertaining to spread holiday cheer and make your place smell like Christmas!  Many products are available on the market that help with home fragrance.  However, many of the scented candles, plug-ins and other odor masking spray products can be toxic and harmful to your health due to the chemicals and artificial scents.  Save money, reduce the chemical load in your home and have fun making your own holiday air fresheners out of essential oils!  Made with several beneficial ingredients, these natural air fresheners will be sure to provide the perfect holiday scent keeping your home smelling lovely for the holidays and chemical free.  Choose 4 sprays to make and take, and go home with all twelve recipes for different holiday scents.
