There are plenty of aspects to embrace when it comes to winter — from the excitement of the holidays and memorable moments around the fireplace to fun outdoor sports like skiing and ice skating amid the crisp, white snow. When it comes to making your home inviting for the winter season, choose the best oil diffusers that will make it a cozy haven and retreat all season long.
Warm and Welcoming
When the temperatures outside dip, you can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere with the right scents. Consider adding scents that add a hint of warmth to your foyer, living room, dining room, or bedroom to make the space inviting for winter. These might be warm, spicy scents with the aromas of cinnamon and other spices; fresh spicy scents with the welcoming fragrance of fresh winter berries; dry woody scents reminiscent of cuddling up next to a warm fireplace; or smoky notes that offer a unique blend of sophistication and warmth.
Holiday scents run the gamut from fresh-baked pies to woody or green notes that remind you of the crisp outdoor air and pine trees. For your kitchens, dens, and living and dining rooms, use holiday scents to bring people together and add to the festive atmosphere.
- Bakery-inspired scents include sweet baked goods, rich vanilla, tempting spices, light creamy fragrance, fresh pie crust, and more.
- The holidays also celebrate a sense of brightness and togetherness, making fresh fruit and berry scents ideal.
Outdoors-inspired scents bring the beauty of the great outdoors to fill your senses. For a scent that reminds you of scouting the woods for the perfect holiday tree, consider musky, woodsy, green, or herbal woody notes. The great outdoors has an incredible feel during the winter months, and you can capture it with a product like the Dimensions Great Outdoors Collection, which features Spruce Ridge Lodge (rosy, fruity, and vanilla scents), Placid Pacific Driftwood (dry woody, vanilla, and watery ozonic notes) and Deep Forest Springs (herbal fresh, berries, and cooling fragrances).
Since winter often necessitates being indoors, it’s also important to make sure your home reflects a sense of wholeness to keep you at your best. Scents that promote relaxation and invigorate you can go a long way in making it through the chilly weather. Choose fresh soap notes, touches of watery ozonic fragrance, cooling fresh scents, fresh herbals, soft violet or fresh lavender fragrances, or relaxing powdery scents to help you keep stamina at the core of your home. The Dimensions Clean and Crisp Collection captures this perfectly with its scents of Spruce Ridge Lodge, Shower Fresh Feeling (herbal fresh, citrusy, and green) and Cool White Linen (fruity, white flowers, and green fragrances).
Create Unexpected Winter Combinations
When you use the best oil diffusers for your home, consider making combinations of traditional winter scents and unexpected additions for a signature scent that stands apart from the rest. Combine citrus and cream, for example, to add a burst of freshness that perfectly complements a delicious creamy aroma. Vanilla and sparkling water notes are both soothing and refreshing. Fresh fruit and warm spices create the perfect combination of sweetness and warmth. Start off with one of the following winter scents, then create fresh fragrance twists by combining other favorites:
- Pie Crust
- Fresh Spicy
- Dry Woody
- Warm Spicy
- Herbal Woody
Treat yourself and your cherished friends and family to unique scent experiences that add a special touch to the season, from holiday celebrations and impromptu get-togethers to relaxing, romantic evenings beside the fireplace.
