|The holidays, for many people, are filled with many happy memories spending time with friends and family. These memories may also be linked to particular aromas. Think about the holidays for a moment.. close your eyes and take yourself back to a pleasant memory from a holiday you spent with loved ones in the past.
Please note: This article does not contain healthcare or therapeutic advice. If you are concerned about your health or well-being, speak with a health professional or visit your nearest medical facility in an emergency.
Perhaps you and your family just finished decorating the tree and the house is filled with the smell of pine or cooking spices from the kitchen from the holiday baking wafting through the house. Wrap yourself in a cozy blanket of these memories as we explore the impact of aromatherapy on our senses and our emotions.
Aromatherapy is the act of using the sense of smell and aroma to product beneficial impacts on emotional well-being and has been widely used in recent years.
Think about the bubble bath you pour under running water that invigorates your senses and calms your nerves. Or the first cup of coffee in the morning that helps activate your other senses and start your morning fresh.
Much like these examples, using essential oils aromatically can influence feelings and uplift mood. This article will provide examples of holiday-inspired essential oil* blends that you can use to create a walk-down-memory-lane in your own home this holiday season. Enjoy!
Gingerbread Cookie Blend
The holidays wouldn't be complete without the sweet and spicy scent of fresh baked gingerbread cookies wafting in the kitchen. Recreate this holiday treat with your very own gingerbread cookie recipe.
Savouring the minty freshness of a peppermint patty always reminds me of the holidays. Fill your house with the scent of candycanes with this holiday-inspired blend.
Spiced Cider Blend
Close your eyes and imagine just taking a sip from your mug of hot apple cider. Recreate the spiced aroma of this delicate combination through this essential oil blend.
Christmas Tree Blend
Just thinking about the scent of pine and forest reminds me of the holidays. Fill your home with this woodsy and spiced scent to treat your guests to a trip down memory lane.
