The Scent of Christmas

Candle with frankincense and myrrh scentIt’s been a long time since my last blog post. More than two weeks! Which may be the longest time that I have gone without blogging since I started close to ten years ago.

Needless to say, things have been very busy and something had to give. So I’ve been absent from this space. But I’m back!

I have so many posts that I want to write. I could do five today if I had the time. But alas, I do not. So I’ll start with this post and take us back. Way back. To baby Jesus.

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.  ~ Matthew 2:11

You don’t often ever see me quoting bible verse, but ’tis the season and I was inspired. This past weekend, I was stocking up on moisturizers for the winter at Good Health Natural Foods in Quincy.

Over the past few weeks, I had also been thinking that I’d like a new fragrance. So when I was in the store and saw a collection of Zum products with a frankincense and myrrh scent, I was intrigued. I love the smell and was feeling festive, so I bought the Zum Mist from Indigo Wild, a Kansas City, Missouri based company.

They have a bunch of other products with a similar scent. The mist is a body mist and aromatherapy room spray. It smells, well heavenly and I’m spraying it everywhere. For those who may see me in person, this is what I am smelling like right now. 😊

If you’re looking for gifts for others or yourself, there are many different items to choose from and Indigo Wild supports some great causes, including rescued dogs and fighting breast cancer. So your money can do some good too.

Hope you’re enjoying the holiday season and I plan to duck back in here soon!
