Warm and cozy holiday decorating ideas

 

Deep in the midst of December, we don’t know about you but we’re feeling like homebodies looking for warmth and coziness wherever we can. The days are short and the air is crisp, but inside is merry and bright.

Everyone has personal tastes and preferences when it comes to holiday decorating ideas, and we’re no strangers to the desire to style our space according to what looks, feels and smells best to us. Luckily, we’ve got no shortage of options when it comes to products you can style in every room of your home - we’re going to suggest an air spray, diffuser, blends plus a few more goodies you can situate in every room to help make your home feel extra homey this year. Read on for our top suggestions when it comes to holiday decorating ideas with clean, natural plant-based products.

 

Holiday decorating ideas for your kitchen

 

One of the rooms we all spend the most time in, especially during the holiday season it seems, is our kitchen. Though this room is well-used, it rarely seems to get the attention it deserves when it comes to decorating. Our top picks for this room include products that are small enough so as to not take up too much space but pack enough punch to make an impact.

Products we love in the kitchen:

Air Spray: we’re going with our limited edition holiday scent Peppermint Twist for our favorite kitchen blend currently. Blended with refreshing essential oils like peppermint and spearmint, this formula will help to keep odors at bay with a quick spritz in between meals.

Diffuser: for a smaller unit that will tuck away easily but will also help to keep the air in your kitchen feeling revitalized, we love the Aroma Rise Speckled White. A brand new diffuser this holiday season, this unit is made from a sturdy speckled white polyresin and offers both a continuous and intermittent functionality - running between 3-6 hours.

Diffuser Blend: our top pick for diffusing in a kitchen is a fan favorite blend called Refresh. Formulated with refreshing and invigorating essential oils of spearmint, lemon and eucalyptus, we chose Refresh because of how good it is at neutralizing odor. A lot of scents pass through the kitchen in a day - this blend will help keep your space feeling clean and clear.

 

Holiday decorating ideas for your bathroom

 

Another often overlooked room in the home when it comes to holiday decorating ideas is the bathroom. We might not even mean to, but some of us spend a lot of time in the bathroom. Especially if you’re hosting or entertaining this year, a few well placed wellness pieces that double as decorative accessories will have everyone vying for extra time in the bathroom.

Products we love in the bathroom:

Air Spray: our room spray of choice is the minty-clean scent of Airoma Loo. Formulated with cleansing peppermint, sage and tea tree essential oils, this spray is perfect for a refresh in between guests as well as when nature calls.

Diffuser: a bathroom is another typically small room that might have limited counter or toilet tank space to house a diffuser. Taking this into consideration, we’ve chosen the Aroma Geni Cashmere as our top pick for the bathroom. Boasting an impressive-for-its-size 4-8 hour run time on either a continuous or intermittent setting, this unit also offers an optional LED light feature that can double as a dim night light.

Diffuser Blend: another blend we love when we’re looking for that fresh, clean feeling is called Mountain High. Reminiscent of a walk in the woods, this blend contains clearing and elevating spearmint, balsam fir and pine to help restore that fresh feeling to your bathroom.

Bonus Product Recommendation: we also love a gentle, delicate facial mist on the bathroom counter to encourage ourselves and guests to take an extra moment for wellness. Our top pick? Rose mist. Hydrating, tension-easing, balancing and all-around lovely. Spritz over your face and body and breathe deeply.

 

Holiday decorating ideas for your living room

 

Ahh, our favorite room in the house. The living room in most homes sees a lot of action - we’re watching cheesy holiday movies, we’re having long overdue conversations with loved ones; the list goes on. Choosing our favorite products to support your holiday decorating ideas here was more challenging because there are so many we love! We whittled down to just a few and we hope you’ll love them as much as we do.

Products we love in the living room:

Air Spray: at this time of year, we’re going with our limited edition holiday scent called Tree Scents. Formulated to mimic the smell of a live, fresh evergreen tree, this spray was formulated with pine, myrtle and lemon to help you invite the freshness of the forest whenever you choose.

Diffuser: typically the largest room in the home, we’re going with our largest and longest running diffuser, the Aroma Om Deluxe in grey stone cement. Chic and attractive to the eye, this diffuser is also highly functional, running between 11-22 hours depending on a high or low setting. If you’re looking for a unit that will keep your home smelling fresh the longest, look no further.

Diffuser Blend: the days are short and the nights are long, so we’re looking for a blend that will help us feel upbeat and cheerful throughout the day. Our fan favorite blend called Liquid Sunshine is an uplifting, citrusy sweet blend of grapefruit, bergamot and lime that’s perfect for keeping your spirits high as you host or spend time vegging on the couch.

Bonus Product Recommendation: because you’re spending so much time here, you’ll want to make sure your favorite roll-ons are always close by. We love the look of this polyresin marbled bar called the Home Farmacy which contains five of our community-loved roll-ons for everything from treating the head to stress and pain. This bar will look stylish on your end table while also providing relief at an arm’s reach.

Holiday decorating ideas for your bedroom

 

For many of us, our bedroom is a well loved room in our home. It’s quiet, it’s peaceful and it’s not typically the scene of chaos and disorder that frequently takes over the rest of our space, especially as many of us are now working from home more frequently. We’re excited to make product recommendations to help you create a true sanctuary of rest and relaxation; read on for our top picks for the bedroom:

Products we love in the bedroom:

Air Spray: for the most sacred room in the home, the bedroom, we’re choosing a blend called Sweet Sheets. This linen and fabric spray has been blended with lavender and lemon to leave a fresh, clean aroma on fabrics while also setting the tone for rest and relaxation.

Diffuser: we wanted a diffuser that would run for the duration of time we were asleep at night, so we’ve selected the Aroma Breeze White. Also available in matte black, this diffuser has a continuous run time of approximately 7-10 hours, and operates at whisper-quiet levels. If you’re looking to breathe deeply and help yourself achieve deep rest, this diffuser will help get you there.

Diffuser Blend: when we want to feel the most calm, the most comfortable and the most at peace, we reach for a tried and true blend called Tranquility. This restful blend of roman chamomile, lavender and marjoram is the perfect complement to your bedtime routine that will help you drift off to dreamland.

Bonus Product Recommendation: Give your lips a treat overnight with a rich, deeply moisturizing salve like our Lip Nourish. Formulated with restorative ingredients like coconut, beeswax and shea butter, we love to treat ourselves to a thick layer before bedtime so we wake up to lips that feel plumped and cared for.

Start a new tradition with these holiday decorating ideas

 

These holiday decorating ideas are sure to run over into your year round decor based almost solely on the fact they were designed to look good, smell good and more importantly, help you to feel good. When you choose products that suit your personal style preferences you’re more inclined to use them regularly, which is why our motto when it comes to natural wellness is options, options, options. We truly believe there is something for everyone when it comes to holiday decorating ideas.
