My Christmas really starts on Christmas Eve. I start to get really excited as I prepare for the big day ahead. It's one time of the year when I notice that my home is filled with wonderful smells and fragrances, which come from almost every room in the house. From mouth watering smells of cooking, roasting and baking emerging from the kitchen, to the sweet fragrances of relaxing bath oils and candles quietly burning in the background. Christmas smells always evoke such fantastic memories, like my children's first performance in the school nativity play to the local Rotary Club coming round with Santa on his sleigh on Christmas Eve, it's just a magical experience.
In the story of the Nativity, the Three Wise Men presented gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh for baby Jesus, and to this day fragrances and essential oils play a great part in the celebration of Christmas all over the world.

I wanted to share with you some of my favourite essential oils for this time of year – which instantly bring back all the great Christmas memories. These essential oils smell great individually or they can be mixed together to create your own unique smell.
I've always been fascinated by the Christmas stocking. Written records don’t really indicate how the tradition of the Christmas stocking got started, but there are several legends surrounding this wonderful tradition. The most trustworthy legend maintains that Saint Nicolas learned about a poor man who couldn’t afford to pay a dowry for his three daughters, and he was worried about them. Saint Nicolas decided to help the man, and he took three bags of gold with him down the chimney of the man’s home.
Once inside, he found the girls’ stockings hanging on the mantelpiece after washing, and he added the gold bags to the stockings and then went about his Christmas Eve rounds. As the story spread, children began hanging their own stockings or putting out shoes, waiting for their own gifts. Usually, they used their own socks, but later, specially decorated stockings were created for the holiday, which we now known simply as the Christmas stocking.
With Christmas literally around the corner, I have recently started thinking about nice little presents that would be ideal for stocking fillers. It's always nice to give additional presents that are just as appreciated as the main present on Christmas Day, so I've put together some of my favourite Christmas skincare products that I think will make great stocking fillers, so here's 7 of our best.
