Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all had a great week and have a fun weekend planned!

When we were selling our Houston house, I remember our realtor giving us some tips on how to make our house even more welcoming.  One of those tips was to throw some cookies in the oven before a showing. At the time, I seriously scoffed at that tip. I was a new mom, working full-time and the market in Houston was HOT, so my thought was “no one cares what our house smells like, it’ll sell anyway.” Then when I came up here to look at our current house, the lady who was selling it had a fire in the fireplace and something baking in the oven. I definitely noticed it, and I remember it, and it was certainly welcoming! 

Since then, I’ve become a little more detail-oriented as a person and I’ve also become more sensitive to smells in our home. I love my candles and my essential oils, but I also recently remembered this DIY Christmas scent recipe that my mom had in our family cookbook and wanted to give it a try! 

It is super easy and smells so good! It’s also a quick and easy way to add a holiday feel to your home through your sense of smell. Even Clint came home from work the first day I did this and was like “Oooh it smells good in here!” 

DIY Christmas Scent Recipe

DIY Christmas Scent Recipe – Ingredients:

  • 1 Quart of Water
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 6 Whole Cloves
  • 1 Whole Lemon Rind
  • 1 Whole Orange Rind

DIY Christmas Scent Recipe – Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a pot on the stovetop and bring to a simmer. Continue to add water to keep it close to one quart of liquid.

I will bring this to a boil and let it go for 10-15 min and then turn it off. I’ll do little “bring to a boil” refreshes occasionally to keep the scent going when it needs a boost.
