There is a lot of goodness that comes from the changing of the seasons: beautiful colored leaves, cool temperatures, cozy sweaters. Change can be a very welcome thing, especially when many of us have been in our homes more often than usual. So during this time of seasonal traditions, we wanted to share a few ways to take inspiration from the seasonal change outside and bring it inside the home. Here are some of our favorite ways to bring fall into and around the home!
It Just Makes Scents
You can't deny it: it really isn't fall until pumpkin spiced everything starts to show back up. You may think that the fall spices come back way too soon, or that they never even left, but for us they can’t come back soon enough. Even if you've never had a taste of the infamous pumpkin spiced latte, there's something really fall-tastic about that spiced aroma. Plus, while a visually-appealing fall aesthetic in your home is a great way to celebrate the changing seasons, having fall-inspired scents around the home really can be a delight.
· Is it even fall without candles? We don't think so. There's just something so snug about a lit candle in a space. Some of our favorite scents we would recommend are anything with some pumpkin (of course), cinnamon, and apple.
· The cool weather also inspires weather-appropriate potpourri. While you can definitely continue to use dry ingredients, a slow cooker potpourri can fill your entire home with warm, pleasant scents. Be sure to check out our slow cooker potpourri that doubles as a simple way to make apple cider coming later this month!
· Double down on your fall scents with the opportunity to treat yourself to a warm beverage - many teas, cocoas, and coffees are not only great ways to warm bellies, but also a portable way to have fall scents with you wherever you are (even if it’s just a different room in your house!). Plus, it's the perfect excuse to break out all your cut fall cups and mugs!
