Every year after Thanksgiving, our thoughts quickly turn to Christmas. We are thinking about what gifts to give, family gatherings, music, decorations, and all the good food. And then there is our choice of various Christmas fragrances we will be using in our home and at work. Did you ever think about how we associate Christmas with specific aromas or fragrances?

Aromas can be a very powerful influence on our bodies. When I was introduced to essential oils I became aware how a fragrance affects us emotionally and physically. Our sense of smell influences our thoughts, behaviors, emotions, and yes, even our memories.
Most people believe the easiest and most effective way to create a pleasing fragrance in your home is to light a scented candle. When we want to smell good, we spray ourselves with our favorite perfume, cologne or body spray before leaving the house. But the use of chemical-based, artificial aromas leads to undesirable consequences.
For optimal health, it is best to avoid as many synthetic ingredients whenever possible. Artificial scents are created from combination of undisclosed natural essences and, in most cases, petrochemicals. When natural oils are adulterated with chemicals, their therapeutic biochemical structure is destroyed, making them useful only as perfume, offering no therapeutic benefits. Today, artificial fragrances are found in soaps, cleaning agents, cosmetics, body care, food, and more. Could this be why so many of us have undesirable reactions to these synthetic fragrances? Is it our bodies are trying to let us know we are breathing something it doesn’t like? Just walking past salons, candle stores and Bath & Body Works can initiate asthma attacks or manifest headaches in the most sensitive people.
This is why therapeutic-grade essential oils are your best and safest choice for enjoying the all of the natural Christmas fragrances. Young Living believes that everyone deserves a life full of abundance and wellness has set the standard for purity and authenticity with the “Seed to Seal” process which applies the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure you receive essential oils of the purest quality.
Young Living offers so many single and blend essential oils you can choose from to create a magical Christmas aroma in your home. You can mix and match various essential oils to make your own favorite Christmas fragrance, and by using a cold-air diffuser to disperse a fine mist of essential oils into the air, the oil molecules will remain suspended for several hours. When diffused, many essential oils help purify the air by eliminating odors and replacing the air with a fresh, aromatic scent. Not only are you creating a wonderful fragrance, you are providing extra health benefits for you, your family and visiting guests.
