CWC2015-59In Northern Minnesota, the smell of pine is ubiquitous and comforting.

Winter is an extremely sacred time for me; Christmas in particular. One of the hallmarks of my childhood is the smell of fresh cut pine in the house in December. Now I have my own way of decorating for Christmas and I don’t have space for a real tree. So, I have to rely heavily on pine scented products to create the mood, and through the years I have found some pretty stellar products. In honor of the first truly cold day of the coming winter season, a few of my picks for pine scents that totally fit the bill. You’ll think you HAVE a tree in your house! PINE

Mrs. Meyer’s Iowa Pine, Smoke & Musk by Earl of East London (one of the best pine candles I’ve found), Christmas Fir Trail Soap by Juniper Ridge.

You do what you can to keep feeling bright and happy during the cold, dark months. I relish this time and look forward to it all year. Bringing the smell of pine trees indoors is the perfect way to feel cozy while the wind is howling outside.
