10. Light a Favorite Holiday Candle
If all else fails, a good, clean burning Christmas Candle will do the trick. My favorite place to get soy candles is on Etsy because they have so many scents, colors and options to choose from!
This is the easiest way to place smells in your homes! From the spicy smell of peppermint to the sweet smells of vanillas, candles really have all the Christmas scents.
I sure these help your home smell just like the holidays all season long!
