I was so excited to see an Australia Post delivery at my door step on a Saturday!I only thought weekend deliveries happened on the last weekend before Christmas.
All week I was waiting for my little parcel to arrive from Crabtree & Evelyn. Thankfully they have an online store, as there is nowhere close to me that I can buy these goodies.
It took a few phone calls to find out that not a single Crabtree & Evelyn stockiest near me actually sells the fragrance oils. So I had to summons patience and let my fingers do the shopping.
Online shopping saved the day, and I love the free sample that came included in my parcel.
For years now, I have had their ‘Noel’ fragrance oil at home. It is a delicious blend of all scents Christmas such as Fresh Balsams, Persimmon, a hint of Citrus and a hint of Spice from Star Anise, Clove and Nutmeg. It is truly delightful and I simply add about 6 drops to my burner and let the scent waft through the house.
If you don’t have a burner or vapouriser you can put a few drops on a tissue and place in a small dish, add to a small bowl of warm water or even add a drop or two to the branches of your Christmas tree. Investing in a burner is the most effective way to use these oils, even it just a simple one from the discount store, they all work the same way. You just add a little water into the dish, or a non-scented wax melt and place a tea light in the base. Once you have lit the candle add the fragrance oil drops into the water. Just keep an eye on the water level as it will evaporate and keep away from little hands.
I love using pure essential oils to fragrance my home and for medicinal use, and it is very rare that I would venture down the path of fragrance oils such as those little bottles of yuck you find in the cheap shops. These lovely oils are definitely worth using.
(Note – These blends are superior quality but are not designed for medicinal use like pure essential oils are.)
I also discovered a new scent ‘Holly Berry’ that I have not smelt before, but a bottle just jumped into my cart.
This one is a little sweeter with hints of Red Current, Fig and Frankincense.
Very affordable at only $15.00 each. When you only use a few drops at a time, you get plenty of applications from these generous size bottles.
They also make the perfect gift for that lady who has everything.
