The holidays are distinctive in their scents, whether peppermint, pumpkins, pine cedar, balsam, orange and cloves, or a favorite: apples and cinnamon!
All the scents are calming but the familiar cinnamon and apple aromas are especially cozy with a perfect balance of warmth and heat from the cinnamon and sweetness from the apple.
The cozy scents of the cinnamon and apples are especially great in essential oils, which you can use to apply onto the skin, in the bath, or even on your pillow to promote relaxation while indulging in the holiday spirit.
Tip: Always perform a skin patch test with any oil you intend to use on a small section to see how your skin type will react.
The two aromatic scents have been favored for centuries and continue to be the winter holiday favorite for many reasons, including it’s ability to promote relaxation especially through the mind with deep meditation, as well as it’s ability to boost the immune system to fight colds or coughs, and relax tight or sore muscles and joints, which may be experienced during this season.
If you’re interested in getting into the holiday spirit while reducing stress, try a massage with apple and cinnamon essential oils. This will help reduce stress because of the two scents’ abilities to promote relaxation, focus, and deep meditation along with the massage itself, which reduces muscle tensions, promotes circulation, and soothes the body and mind.
For simply enjoying the rich scents of apples and cinnamon, candles are also a great option as well as a great gift! The scent alone can help relax the mind and help reduce stress while allowing you to indulge in the winter holidays by providing your home with the rich scents. It’s amazing how holiday scents have the ability to bring up “good feelings” and positive holiday memories – perfect for getting into the holiday spirit!
