A cozy home is one that welcomes you after a long day and makes you feel warm and safe. Cozy may mean something different for each homeowner, but the bottom line is you want to feel at home and comfortable when in your space. When designed and decorated properly, you will love your home and feel like it is an escape from the trials and challenges of the outside world. Those who visit you will also feel a sense of well-being and warmth when in your home. It will take time, but creating a warm and welcoming home will be well worth the effort. Begin the process by completing big renovation projects like kitchen remodeling and installing kitchen cabinets. This is one of the most important rooms in your home, so make sure it is comfortable and functional before completing any other projects.
While the last soak is perfect for those looking for a quick jolt to get them ready for an active day, this soak is perfect for helping you to wind down after a long day. For this soak you will be using chamomile, lavender, marigold, sandalwood, marjoram and mint. If you have a sensitivity to musky fragrances just leave out the sandalwood. You can find many of these fragrances in Extreme Incense mixes and teas.
Many people who make candles will use molds. There are hundreds of different types of molds you can use, and can be easily found at your local craft shops or on the internet. Common materials that candle molds are made from are aluminum and steel. Another tool you might consider is a wick holder bar. The wick holder bar will help to keep your wicks centered in your mold as you are pouring your wax. Another tip is to spray your molds with some type of silicone spray such as Non-Stick cooking spray to help your candle come out of the mold without damage.
Todays roses come in a large variety of colors, both solid and some mixed. There are white, yellow, various shades of pink and red, lavender and even roses which appear to be black.
Swag is always fun to give and receive at a party. When the occasion is a bit more upscale, you can’t go wrong with crystal bowls. Customize the bowls specifically for your Herbal Potpourri event by having them engraved. They make a sparkling party favor by themselves, but fill them with party swag and you’ll be sure to impress.
Frank Sinatra and other singers have immortalized the romantic notion of autumn in the Big Apple. And the vivid changing colors of New England always come to mind when thinking about the season.
While we’re on the subject of fragrance, I always change the fragrances I use in my home with the seasons. I tend to gravitate to spicy, woodsy or fruity home fragrances in the winter like cinnamon or apple. For a quick change, I refresh my living room every spring and summer by switching to floral scented candles, potpourri and other air fresheners. When I change the fragrance to lavender, lilac or honeysuckle, it refreshes and totally changes the mood in the room.
