Ahh, the holidays...a time of giving and receiving and a time of great celebration. It is a time of year when the weather gets cold and we all huddle inside. Many of us decorate our homes, light fires and count our blessings for the past year. And still more of us set our intentions for the year to come.
We check our holiday gift lists and check them twice, remembering those we love.
But what if we all added one more name to our holiday gift list this year? What if we all gave a gift to the earth in gratitude for our life on this planet? What if we decided to go green this holiday season?
The thing is, it wouldn’t need to cost money...in fact, it could SAVE money. And really, it could be fun!
Greener air - Ditch the toxic holiday air fresheners and make a quick, easy and delightful holiday mister with essential oils and water. In a glass fine mist sprayer, add water almost to the top. Then add between 10 – 20 drops of your favorite essential oil and you have a safe, affordable and aromatic air freshener!
Some great aroma ideas for the holidays are: In a fine mist sprayer, put 10 drops of orange essential oil and 10 drops of peppermint essential oil in 12 ounces of water. This blend is uplifting and brings a feeling of happiness and energy, while freshening the air. In the warmer months, ants and flies will stay away from this heavenly scent. Other great essential oil scents of the season are cinnamon, clovebud and frankincense. The good news is, your essential oils will last a long time and you can make many batches of air freshener, house cleaner, skin lotion or other treats with them – which makes them a great creative green holiday gift idea!
Pretty soon, you may start to crave more greens. We heard from one family who started to add more and more vegetables to their diet because they began to crave them.
We’d love to hear from you about what works for your family. Join us on Facebook to share your green holiday ideas!
