I love Christmas. I love Christmas. I love Christmas.
Did I say I love Christmas?
By far, Christmas is my FAVORITE time of the year because there is just so much to LOVE about Christmas! There’s the music, the tree, the presents, the lights, the food, the parties, the concerts,the mistletoe, the spices, and the list goes on!
I am so grateful for Christmas for so many reasons, but today I will share three of those: 1) the smells, 2) the purpose of Christmas and 3) the community Christmas brings.
Okay that probably sounds really weird – “the smells,” but you know exactly what I mean: the Fall/Christmas Smell!
This smell is one filled with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin spice! It’s all the spices that make you feel warm inside and remind you of the holidays.
So to smell that sweet scent, I would always burn candles that were holiday themed.
Until this year, because this year I’m getting the Holiday Joy Blend from doTERRA which smells just like Christmas, but is 100% made with natural ingredients!
Because I just started with doTERRA this year and haven’t used this oil yet, I thought I’d ask one of my mentors and friends, Angie O’Tool, to share her experience with the Holiday Joy blend!
Here’s what Angie shared:
“Holiday Joy is truly a special, unique blend! I absolutely love diffusing it during the holidays because it can make your home smell like Christmastime, no matter what climate you live in. As a previous candle/Scentsy-lover, around the holidays I tend to miss those pine-loaded, nutmeg-enriched smells – though I don’t miss the toxins that comes along with the candles or the chemical undertones! Enter Holiday Joy! This blend of 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils not only smells AH-mazing, but has wonderful qualities due to the chemical makeup of the individual oils included in this blend. Wild Orange, nutmeg, pine, Cassia, Cinnamon Bark, and vanilla mesh together to purify the air and uplift the mind. So thankful to have this healthy alternative to other typical options for holiday scents!”
You see? That is why I’m grateful for doTERRA and the Holiday Joy Blend because they both allow me to enjoy one of my favorite parts of Christmas in a more natural and safe way!
The Purpose of Christmas and the Community It Brings
Christmas to me is a time to celebrate the birth of my Lord, Savior and King – Jesus. It’s the time where there is space to reflect and remember the One who came to show us how to follow God, love and serve those around us, and who ultimately gave His life so we can always know and be with Him.
Christmas also brings family, friends and the community together in a way that no other holiday does in my eyes. People give gifts, time, and love more during the holiday season than any other time. Families reunite after months apart, co-workers take a break from work to celebrate time together, and people stop to remind themselves of what truly is important.
That is why I am grateful for Christmas because it is a scheduled reminder to remember who and what truly matters in this life and the one after.
