I love Christmas. I love everything about the holiday (even though it does stress me out). One thing I have never done as a grown up is to get a live tree. I want to. I like the thought of it. But when it comes down to it, pulling the artificial one from 2003 from storage is just plain easier. And if you know me at all, and you guys do, I am all about simple. But one thing I miss is the smell of Christmas.
Not anymore though! I recently learned about ScentSicles when they sent me some samples to try out (though of course my opinions remain my own). They eco-friendly (biodegradable) scented ornaments that make artificial Christmas trees smell real and real trees smell that much better. ScentSicles are not overpowering but have a noticeable and rather authentic Christmas smell. ScentSicles can be hung from trees, tucked into wreaths and garland, or discreetly hidden to provide that soft scent of fresh-cut Christmas trees that I remember. Made of natural fibers, sourced from sustainable resources and infused with pure fragrance, ScentSicles offer a no-mess, no-flame, simple way to make artificial holiday greenery smell real, enhance the scent of a live tree, or just add scent as a decoration. This super smart product was invented by a NASA scientist!
ScentSicles are great for Secret Santa gifts, hostess gifts or maybe a fun “Dirty Santa” present. I plan to use them as decoration (and an added gift) for my kids’ teachers. (Between four kids I have seven teachers to buy for!) ScentSicles options for 2014 include Scented Sprigs, Auto Sticks and Decorative Ornaments that can be used in the car, office, or where ever. ScentSicles last 30 days and are Made in the USA.
