The Beauty of Change

The change of season is so obvious in nature. You can look outside and see the colors emerge in the spring, become vivid as the summer progresses, turn to bright orange and golds with the start of autumn and become a silhouette of black and white as we work through winter, only to emerge again in spring with soft pastels. And so goes the cycle that we so take for granted. But, do you notice how the changes in the seasons effect you and your taste?

The tastes of spring are light, fresh and green. It is time to get outside, breath deep and enjoy the new awakening. Fragrances you might enjoy are Buds and Berries, Citrus and Lavender, Lemongrass Tea, and Lilac and Wildflowers.

Summer creeps in on Spring and we will be enjoying fresh produce and long hot days. When you take comfort in the cool air conditioning in your home you might enjoy lighting a Heirloom Tomato, Red Sangria, Root Beer Float, or Raspberry Lemonade candle.

As the days get shorter and the cool, crisp evenings are warning you that Autumn has arrived, we will be enjoying great pumpkin treats and spiced apple cider. As we migrate back into the our homes with closed windows and the family around the table, think about lighting a Gingerbread Pumpkin, Apple Strudel, Cranberry Amaretto or a White Cedar and Spice.

Oh, you knew that winter was coming. Time to embrace those long evenings and hot bowls of soup. Pile on the comfort food along with the extra layers of clothes. This is the perfect season to enjoy Victorian Christmas, Scotch Pine, Peppermint Pine Needle, Cabin Fever or Butter Toffee.

Each season brings it’s sense of color, taste and excitement. How dull it would be if there was one season, one taste or one fragrance. Change is beautiful!
