Hey, lovelies! Hope you are having a great week so far. Welcome back if you’ve been away on summer vacation! Today is officially “back to school day” here at our house and that means it’s time for me get into full FALL NESTING mode! One of my absolute favorite parts of fall is all the cozy scents wafting through the air.
So many of our best memories and moments in life can be connected to scents. The freshness in the air from a fall rainstorm, a walk in the forest, the crackling fire on a cozy night, a cup of steaming hot cider in my hands. It has always made sense :) to me to incorporate good scents into our daily life and home.
Quote from my NYT Bestselling Book: Love the Home You Have
One easy way I freshen the scent of our home every day (without burning candles or other more harmful products like chemical air fresheners or sprays) is by diffusing seasonal combinations of oils (I use Young Living essential oils for their quality and purity) so my house always smells inviting. I’m happy to share more details on the products we use anytime, so don’t hesitate to ask!
Part of my morning routine all year round begins with turning on our oil diffuser. It always helps set the mood for the day. I even look forward to it! I actually don’t feel like I can really get in my groove without selecting the right scents to inspire me to have quiet time, work or clean or whatever.
This simple daily ritual of selecting the oils and turning on my diffuser has even helped me to become a more focused and self-disciplined person, since I naturally have trouble with that (ha!). It’s right up there with bed-making when it comes to how I motivate myself to follow a daily routine and get myself started with my day.
I’ll be honest, I could hardly wait for fall to start so a week or two ago I made the transition to some more autumn-inspired scents. I was really into fresh clean fruity or floral scents all summer and now I’m head over heels for my current fave, a cozy fall nesting combo.
Everyone who has come to my house recently loves this combination, so I thought you might love it, too. You’ll find the recipe below and a graphic to pin to remind you to give it a try.
Happy nesting, friends.
