I’ve never been one to really decorate my home for the change of the seasons. Who am I kidding, I hardly decorate my home, anyway. I’m all about practical stuff that we use every day. Besides, if it’s all decorated, it’s one more thing for the kids to mangle, and one more thing for me to have a conniption fit about them touching and mangling. It’s easier to just go with basics.
I have, however, discovered in the last couple of years, the joy of changing my diffuser and cleaner smells for the change of the season. In the early summer, I stuck with citrus fragrances. A nice lemon/lime, or lime/orange blend in the diffuser energizes me and makes me want to get things done.
In the spring, a light floral scent – jasmine, rose, or bergamot is a great way to begin the day.
It’s not spring, and it’s not going to be summer much longer. We have already started feeling cooler temps and shorter days. So today, I switched my cleaning solution and diffusers to a fall fragrance – sweet orange and cinnamon. I just want to curl up on the couch with a blanket, some hot chocolate, and a good book to read.
