When it's raining and cold outside, and I'm longing to be outdoors, the warm twinkle of fire, and the lovely scent of nature can make the world of difference to my mood.
There is nothing more relaxing than lighting a fire, curling up on the sofa under a blanket watching a movie with hot cocoa ... and with a comforting scent wafting throughout the house. For some reason, certain scents such as cypress, pine, and fir make my stress melt away and bring calm and serenity to our home. It's one of the reasons why I absolutely love having a real Christmas tree in our home over the holiday season. There's something very calming about nature.
