Springtime is here. Maybe you’ve done some spring cleaning around your house. You’re probably enjoying open windows, natural lighting and the days being long. I adore the feeling that a new season brings, and scents really help me to capture and relish in that feeling. I use essential oils for lots of things, from DIY beauty to first aid, but one of my favorite ways to use them is to create aromatic bliss in my home.
I used to be a huge fan of scented candles. Obviously, candles can be dangerous if you have littles running around the house like I do, so most of my candles are packed away or perched up high on shelves gathering dust. I used to miss having that smell in my living room, until I discovered essential oils.
I love that I can mix and create different scents with them. There are combinations that can uplift your spirits, perk you up if you’re dragging, purify the air, ease anxiety, give a “just cleaned” smell, or make you feel like you’re in a fragrant forest.
One of my favorites is a combination of DoTerra’s Clary Sage and Serenity. I used that combo during my labor and birth with Murphy. When I smell it, I’m instantly transferred to that exciting time when we first met this little guy who we’ve gotten to know so well. Scent has a powerful tie to your memory. Years from now, what scent will transport you back to your life right this minute? Scent is a great way to strengthen traditions and provide a source of comfort. I’ve grown to be comforted by the smell of On Guard diffusing in our house when I’m sick. So not only does it help to keep sickness away, but it’s almost become as much of a soothing staple as chicken noodle soup!
Now that I’ve grown to love my oils, when I’m out shopping and smell a candle, I’m never tempted to buy. Sure they smell nice, but I can smell that artificial smell. It’s just not the same as pure essential oils. I suppose my candles have found their permanent purpose as cobweb holders, with the occasional stint as a light source during a power outage.
