You know Christmas isn’t complete without the tree, sparkling lights, hearty food, and the scents that fill your home. We don’t just mean the smell of noche buena wafting in the air, but also the sweet and earthy scents that remind us of the occasion.
You can easily incorporate these scents with just one light of a candle. From fresh pine tree to sweet peppermint, you’re sure to complete your holiday home experience.
