Winter comes along with a variety of associated colors, images, and even smells. Red, green, and winter blues line the aisles of every major store, while holiday lights, Santa decorations, and snowmen star in nearly every winter decoration. Scent also plays a huge role in the season, from earthy pines and cedars to warm cinnamon and freshly baked cookies.
Scent is a major trigger that we recognize as an indication of a new season. Think of the crisp smell of fall leaves, bonfires, and even the beloved pumpkin spice that surround us every autumn. Winter has its own scents that can help put us into the holiday spirit. Ever wonder why scents have such a strong effect on our feelings?
The truth is, we tend to associate scents with nostalgic or specific moments. The smell of your first real Christmas tree is conjured when you inhale the scent of pine. The memory of your favorite holiday dinner is recalled when you smell freshly baked sugar cookies or cinnamon.
One of the most effective ways to add helpful scents to your day is through the use of pure essential oil blends and a scent machine. The oils add the aromas you want, while the scent machines work to distribute the scents into the air. You’ll want to be sure you’re using a high quality oil to get the best benefits, like the ones offered in our online store
