Since we spend more time inside during the winter, I appeal to the sense of smell by using essential oils that reflect the season, like cedar, fir, pine, bergamot and ginger, I place a drop or two on sachets, pillow or towel tags. I also add oils to natural or artificial branches and stems arranged in a tall vase, which add a dramatic touch to any space. Remember that a little essential oil goes a long way.
To add color, I bring in fresh herbs from the garden or a market and put them in a tall shot glass or small vase. They look beautiful on the kitchen counter and also give easy access when cooking.
