Scent of Christmas


by Randa P. Velox Dec.15.06

Christmas is a season of sharing, a time for family, and of course, for memories. Visions from our past, entwined gently with the creation of new ones. Memories that will be taken forward to future holiday seasons, shared again and again with equal joy and wonder. These beautiful memories, and the many traditions that surround them, lie in the midst of many experiences.

For each of us, the ‘scents of the season’ are different, stemming from a wide range of family experiences and traditions. What remains the same for us all is that the scents play an immense role in our awareness that the season is here, creating the enthusiasm, and childlike excitement that only Christmas can bring.{{more}}

Invite the wonder of aromatherapy into your homes this Christmas.

Let us create the aromatic scent that cheers on happiness in a joyous way, a welcoming fragrance that would fill our homes with Christmas cheer and happiness.


3 Cinnamon Sticks, about 4 inches long

2 Bay Leaves

1/4 cup Whole Cloves

1/2 Lemon – Cut in 2 pieces

1/2 Orange – Cut in 2 pieces

1-Quart Water

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for as long as desired. Check water level frequently and add more as needed. Mixture may be stored in refrigerator and re-used.

The aroma of this Christmas scent is very uplifting as it simmers. Turn it up a notch and create a blissful ambience with lit candles and Christmas music playing in the background. Cheer the spirit of the holiday in a memorable way.

Happy Holidays! From our family at “Nails by Design” to yours; wishing all a Healthy and Loving holiday Season.
