Scents of Yuletide

Christmas is definitely our favourite time of year. Frosty mornings, wearing woolly socks to bed, ice on the grass, the constant smell of wood fires burning from houses, all the twinkling lights; we could go on listing all day. One thing that always makes it feel more festive is the arrival of the Christmas tree which transforms the sitting room into a mini forest and walking in to the scent of it every morning never gets any less exciting. We wanted to share a really simple way of spreading a bit more Yuletide scent in your house. Firstly, collect your pine branches, they can be any kind of pine or spruce you can find or wish to use. Bring them home and place them in a pan of water which you simply boil on a low heat and let infuse, you’ll find your house smelling of pine! You can snap the branches and cut the pine needles in half too which encourages a stronger scent; the fresher, the better! Merry Christmas!
