Isn’t there something so delicious about the changing leaves and the coolness in the air that makes you want to do all the cozy things? I feel for me that the time that I have the most creativity and energy is in the fall. The summer heat has faded, I sleep more soundly, and I can’t wait to putter about my home moving things around, dusting away the old bunnies, and making space for something wonderful.
First things first, I definitely clean top to bottom and enjoy the ritual of cleansing and freshening up my space. Today was extra fun because I was able to use all of our own cleaning supplies with their beautiful new labels, so many delightful vibrant colours! My home smells of a soothing aroma of various essential oils and it has brought me the true start of the essence of 🍂hygge🍂 Hygge (pronounced hooga) is a word in Danish and Norwegian that describes a mood of coziness and "comfortable conviviality" with feelings of wellness and contentment. My favourite blend to achieve this feeling of 🍂hygge🍂 right now is Winter Crisp as it has scents of cinnamon and clove (plus rosemary, lemon, and peppermint) and it’s absolutely delightful - like grandma’s apple pie. There is something truly nostalgic about this blend. My other favourite is Dolce Lime Laundry Detergent, it makes doing laundry less of a chore for sure, and who doesn’t need that? Dolce lime is made with vanilla, lime, and mandarin - I sneak in multiple sniffs with this one - it truly brings me joy.
I really find pleasure in changing up my space by bringing in foliage from the outside world and decorating with warm colours indoors. A clean home, the smell of soup simmering on the stove, candles lit, warm sweaters, sunflower bouquets, music playing, campfires - this is the true essence of hygge for me.
