Make Merry, Magical Memories with Essential Oils this Holiday Season
This happy holiday, using your exclusive Kashmere Kollections essential oils, re-capture your heart’s fondest memories of the merry, magical season with these common essential oil blends inspired by your favorite Christmas scents. And, make some room for more!
The holidays are categorically the season for spreading not only good cheer, exchanging gifts, baking Christmas tree-shaped sugar cookies with the kiddies, decorating the tree, attending gatherings with family and friends, but also a time for introspection and creating lasting, magical memories. Who doesn’t find themselves pensively reminiscing about the magical memories of Christmas’ past each and every year? And, with each new year, more magical memories are created, neatly tucked away in the deepest recesses of our hearts to be anxiously retrieved for years to come. So, it’s no surprise the traditional, timeless scents of the season are directly and intrinsically linked through a neuro-transmittal process commonly known as sensory memory. The brain’s responsive neuro transmitters have the innate ability to conjure up our deepest recollections through a simple, unassuming whiff of a particular perfume, fragrance, aroma, or scent. Sensory memory is amazingly powerful – and proven – and can have pleasing, introspective effects, especially around the warm festivities of the holidays.
Diffusing these blissful, beautiful blends into your warm, cozy, festivity-filled home, or wearing in your exquisite Kashmere Kollections Diffuser Jewelry, will inevitably invoke a special, indelible experience that you can muse over for years to come, while surely triggering beautiful memories of Christmas’ that have passed.
Here is a list of seasonal essential oils and their health – and holiday – -inducing properties:
