Rustic Scented Candles

Rustic scented candles are a great way to bring back fond memories of our past. Scents of all types just seem to have a way of refreshing our memories of past experiences or people we have forgotten about. For example the sharp smell of tobacco may bring back memories fond memories of the times we spent with our grandfathers. Struggling to remember a camping trip you had a great time on? Why not burn a spruce scented candle and trigger these fond memories.

Scented candles are a great inexpensive way to bring these scents to your home temporarily. Candles even the unscented types are calming. The flickering light of the flame on the wick is almost mesmerizing in the night time. The therapeutic benefits of scented candles make the purchase of an artisan candle well worth what you will pay for it. You just have to find a scent that works for you and that will bring out your past.

Rustic Scented Candles for the Holidays

For a lot of us the holidays hold some truly fond memories. Maybe for some of us it is the pine or spruce scent that we are missing from our artificial tree. Maybe it is the smell of peppermint from the candy canes we use to enjoy as children. Or it could be smell of fresh gingerbread cookies baking in the oven. Well you can find almost all the scents of the holidays in candles.

Although Christmas scented candles are probably the most popular of the holiday scented candles you can still find candles scented to your holiday you are after. You will find a wide variety of rustic scented candles perfect for Easter and Thanksgiving. I have a pumpkin spiced candle that I like to bring out and light from October to November. My guests seem to love it to as we always receive compliments when we let it burn.

Rustic Candle Holders

Aside from the burn and scent of your rustic scented candles, one of the best ways to add ambiance to any room is with a rustic themed candle holder. Metallic candle sticks are great but you can go way more rustic to suit the space you are decorating. Birch candle stick holders look great in almost any home or cottage. Birch bark itself has an iconic natural pattern that take people back to nature.

So next time you are looking to spruce up your rustic décor why not add some rustic scented candles. They are inexpensive, smell great, and will bring you back to the finer points in your life.

The materials you are going to use for your Xmas ornaments and decorations can be usually found in your home or even by taking a walk around your neighborhood. So honestly don’t worry if you are new to crafting and are afraid to put your work out on display for your friends and family.

Primitive Christmas Garland


Two very popular places to decorate for the holidays are your stairwells and fireplace mantle. Garland of any type is a great way to add some Christmas spirit to both of these locations. As a primitive Christmas craft you can make your own garland to the specific lengths and styles you need to decorate your home for the holidays. Xmas garland traditionally looks very similar to your Christmas wreath and usually has some type of coniferous branches, pine cones, and berries, or flowers. Really the only difference is that it is a decorative chord that is used to wrap or rest on a mantle or railing in contrast to a holiday wreath that is circular and hung on doors.

Christmas garland also makes a great border for almost anything in your home. Garland can be hung around door frames, dining room tables, and as a decorative border to your Christmas tree skirt.
