I love fragrances all year round not just for myself but also for my home. I really get into it once autumn comes round. And for the holidays – Thanksgiving and Christmas time – it’s a must! I love the warm and spicy scents especially for my kitchen, bathrooms and family room.
Because I have asthma, I have to be careful about what I use to scent my home. For me, natural is best. Synthetic fragrances may contain any of 3000 chemical components, none of which are required to be published on the ingredient list. Ugh. So I was happy to have an opportunity to try Via Nature Natural Home Holiday Fragrance Sprays.
Via Nature was a new brand for me, and I was glad to be introduced to it. I’ve since found out that Via Nature is known for 100% pure Essential Oils as well as an extensive line of natural personal care products including Via Nature body care, facial care, hair care, essential oils, and deodorant products, all made to the highest standards. Their products are cruelty-free and vegan. You can learn more about the brand on the Via Nature website.
I received two scents that are very holiday appropriate:
- orange & clove pomander
- sweet & spicy peppermint
There are two other scents in the product line: Frankincense & Myrrh, Lemon Créme & Spice.
Truth be told, I will use the sprays I received all year round!
I love pomanders, and I’ve made them myself many times with an orange, cloves and a mixture of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. They smell great, but after a while, the orange rots and turns green, ew. 😥 Orange & Clove Pomander from Via Nature smells so much like a real pomander. The clove scent is the most dominant and it smells great, but the orange kicks in as well and smooths out the fragrance.
When I saw the Sweet & Spicy Peppermint, I was a little nervous that it could be too minty. Boy was I wrong! What a fabulous scent! I’d describe it as candy cane. It is pepperminty but it has the sweetness of candy mixed in with the mint. I love it!
The fragrance sprays come in aluminum (I think) recyclable pump spray cans, and they are very easy to use. It’s critical to shake the can well to mix the natural ingredients. I was amazed that one good spray created so much fabulous scent! Although the scent isn’t quite as long-lasting in the air as the ones made with chemicals from the grocery store, I prefer these natural scents hands-down. The cans are even stamped with an expiration date so you know that your scent is fresh.
Via Nature Natural Home Holiday Fragrance Spray contains 4 fl. oz. and is made in the U.S. by Universal BioSciences. Price $7.49. They’re the perfect home accessory for the upcoming holidays. For more information, visit the Via Nature website.
