How to create a Christmas atmosphere at home: the best fragrances

Christmas atmosphere

The festive atmosphere is created by details: a white angel on a Christmas tree, the scent of pine needles, white icing on a gingerbread house, gingerbread men, garlands and tangerines. The war has taught us to appreciate every moment, so we should not miss this opportunity to give ourselves and our loved ones a little holiday.

Fragrances play an important role in creating a festive atmosphere and eventually take us to the world of memories. Read the OBOZ.UA article to find out what winter aromas will fill your home with warmth and coziness.

The scent of pine needles

Traditionally, the symbol of Christmas is the scent of pine needles. You don't have to buy a live Christmas tree, just apply a few drops of essential oil to the branches of an artificial tree.

Warm and cozy aromas

In general, aromatherapy can not only create a festive atmosphere, but also have a positive effect on mood. Some scents and essential oils have a therapeutic and calming effect. They help you relax after a stressful day, distract and unwind. For example, the smell of fresh baked goods is associated with childhood.

If you don't have time to make apple strudel with cinnamon or bake gingerbread cookies, aromatic oils and butters will come in handy again. Cinnamon will create a feeling of warmth, calmness and home comfort.

Spicy rich notes

Clove adds rich spicy notes and is a great calming agent. Combined with the sweet warmth of nutmeg, it will create a special atmosphere of Christmas magic.

You can add a little refreshing accent, for example, by making a tangerine candle or adding a few drops of orange essential oil. The tree can be decorated with pine cones that have a rich scent of the winter forest.

Fragrances for vigor and good mood

In contrast to calming scents, you can use more intense ones. The combination of citrus accents with cinnamon will not only refresh your home, but also give you a sense of vigor and a burst of energy. A variety of scented candles will come in handy to add charm to long winter evenings.

By the way, OBOZ.UA told you that tangerines and other small vegetables and fruits that can be cut into containers - apples, potatoes, small beets, or sweet peppers - are suitable for creating candles. For example, we showed how to make a candle from an orange.
