The smell of a real Christmas tree is amazing.
The smell of real wood makes the whole house smell like holidays. Every December we made it a family tradition to go out into the woods and find ourselves a real Christmas tree . There are some trees that have a stronger aroma than others.
If you have an artificial tree you will not have a beautiful evergreen fresh wood scent in your home unless you create it
There are ways to create it
Natural scent of Christmas tree
One of the easiest ways to help create that lovely tree smells is to use essential oils. There are many essential oils derived from trees and you can diffuse, create a mist for your tree or even add them to your tree ornaments.
I highly recommend essential oils over the chemical sprays, plug-ins and perfume scented products to reduce the toxicity level in your home.
It’s also better for your health, family members & the earth.
