My Favorite Scents of Nature (and More!!!)

1:22 PM

I have a love for scented things. I love scented soaps, lotions, candles, air fresheners, shampoos, body washes...etc. I have recently found out (didn't know this before) that Seventh Generation has a wonderful line of scented Natural Dish Liquids and they sound just fabulous!!!

I would love to share some of my favorite scents with you all today and tell you where they "take me" as a woman, a mom and a home maker!

My first scent that is probably my favorite is lemon. Whenever I clean with lemon-scented cleaners it just freshens up my home so much. I also love to throw lemon peels down my kitchen disposal to freshen that up a bit. As you know (if you have a disposal), they can get rather stinky and nasty at times so they need some T.L.C. quite often. I cannot help but think about miles and miles of lemon trees...full of fresh lemons just waiting for me to pick!
The second scent that I especially love during the fall season is apple. I have a Rainbow vacuum cleaner and when I use that I can add scents to the water so that the air smells nice after vacuuming. With my scents that I can add to the water I have a cinnamon apple scented liquid that smells amazing. When I am done cleaning, my home smells awesome. I also have a plethora of apple scented candles that I specifically save for the harvest season and love to burn them in my kitchen especially.
The next scent that I really do enjoy is Bath and Body Works Wild Honeysuckle. Unfortunately, this scent has been discontinued and I can no longer buy it in the stores (but I can online!!!!). I really whined to the company when this happened because this was the only scent that I loved from them and wore exclusively. (My whining hasn't paid off yet though...bleh). It has such a subtle yet floral scent that infuses the air around me and I just love inhaling the aroma. It kind of reminds me of a summer flower garden...sweet and beautiful. I am hoping that one day they bring it back as it was definitely one of my favorites.

Another scent that I love to have in my home is vanilla. One of the reasons why is because vanilla can be combined with so many other scents to create beautiful mosaics of aroma therapies. Just like in baking, it just adds so much to scents! My candle selection also includes many vanilla scents as well. :)
Last but not least I really love the scent of Johnson's Baby Lotion. Yes, I know it is not a "nature" scent per say, but as a mom, it is a scent that I have grown to love throughout my years of motherhood. There is just nothing like picking up a freshly bathed baby and burying your head into their skin and smelling their baby soft scent. Wow. My son is 17 months and I still use it on him after each and every bath. Yes, he is getting bigger, but it just helps to remind me of the baby that is still in him.

So, there you have it! My list of my favorite scents! What about you? What are some of your favorites? Do you have one that you cannot live without? Share with us your thoughts and don't forget to stop and smell the beautiful scents that nature has to offer. :)
