So it’s finally happened. The warmth of summer is leaving and now there is a chill in the air as we move further into autumn. Time to pull out the long sleeves, long pants, sweaters and maybe even a blanket. Now is the time of year to enjoy a hot cup of soup, a bowl of chili, or maybe a mug of hot chocolate. Are you feeling warmer yet?
So what else can you do to keep warm? Might I suggest a scented candle? I know – you’re thinking – how can that little flame keep me warm? Well it’s not so much the flame as it is the scent of the candle. It is amazing how our sense of smell affects our perception of our surroundings. Some scents evoke the spacious feelings of the outdoors. So what kind of scents give the feeling of warmth? The best scents to create that warm and cozy feeling come from the food or spice categories. So here are some suggestions:
- Very Vanilla
- Cinnamon Stick
- Banana Nut Bread
- Hazelnut Cappuccino
- Hot Baked Apple Pie
So tuck away the blanket (for now) and light a good scented candle. Let the fragrance change your mood and the atmosphere of your home.
