Holiday Infuser Blends

I adore the smells of the holidays—Christmas trees, holiday baking, cocoa, and woodsmoke. I formulated these scent blends around my favourite winter memories, from picking out a Christmas tree to spending the entire weekend in the kitchen making pies and cookies. I’m loving them in my Saje Aroma Cloud ultrasonic diffuser these days.

World Travel Inspired Essential Oil Diffuser Blends

Traveling is downright addictive, and I’ve got a serious case of wanderlust. One of my favourite things in the world is stepping off an airplane and smelling the air in a new place for the first time. It’s never the nicest smelling air I’ll come across on the trip, but it’s my first impression, and if we’re being honest, anything is nice after hours of recycled airplane air.

Anyhow, in an attempt to assuage my wanderlust, I’ve devised five world travel inspired scent blends to use in my Saje Aroma Cloud ultrasonic diffuser. They’re inspired by cities and landscapes from all over the world—some I’ve visited and some I’m still just dreaming of. I hope you enjoy them as much as I am.

Canadian Inspired Essential Oil Diffuser Blends

Canada is a really fantastic smelling country, with enough scents and landscapes to make any perfumer’s head spin. From the musty moss forests of the Gulf Islands of British Columbia, to the sunny alpine meadows of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, to the honey-scented apple orchards of Québec, we are a delightfully fragrant country. With some serious Canadian wanderlust tugging at my heartstrings, and in honor of Canada Day, I decided to put my beautiful new Saje Aroma Cloud to work with some custom essential oil blends designed to evoke memories of different parts of Canada.

Pemberley Soap

If we’re going to be making Jane Austen inspired things, we obviously have to make a soap. I feel very confident that Pemberley would have the loveliest of soaps in all of the (presumably numerous) washing and bathing facilities. I also feel more confident than is perhaps historically warranted that the occupants of Pemberley bathed regularly. Anyhow—I wanted to create a soap worthy of gilded soap dishes and claw-footed tubs—something with the understated visual grace I associate with the Regency era. These creamy bars with a subtle, swirly top are what I came up with.

Rosé Leave-In Hair Conditioner

I can hardly believe it, but I don’t think I’ve ever shared a formula for a leave-in hair conditioner before. I’ve had plenty of requests, but somehow such a thing has slipped through the cracks—until now! This lightweight Rosé Leave In Hair Conditioner helps hydrate, smooth, and re-vitalize hair between washes, and it smells delightful to boot!

Pemberley Conditioning Body Butter

Brace yourself for this Pemberley Conditioning Body Butter, as it is divine. This is a continuation of the Pemberley series I kicked off in February with my Pemberley Hand Lotion, featuring the same stunning scent blend and general theme of luxury. As I was trying to brainstorm different projects that would fit with the beautiful luxurious-ness of the theme I couldn’t help but think of a conditioning body butter, as every single one I’ve made has been the epitome of luxury. This one is no different—it leaves your skin feeling all kinds of soft and pampered, it smells divine, and it is the perfect companion to the hand lotion. Prepare to fall in love!
