Over the years, I’ve always settled with fake trees. I'm sure many of you are in the same board--either you don't want to buy fresh or you want something that will last year in, year out. Fake trees can be a really great alternative, but don't you just miss THAT SMELL???
Now that I’m able to fake it, I’ll never again miss the fresh scent that comes with a fresh, bushy tree.
The only hurdle was to figure what Christmas trees smell like. So I checked my small apothecary cabinet and found a few essential oils that’ll do the trick: Pine, Peppermint, Eucalyptus - all good options.
