Scents for Simple Moments

Scents for Simple Moments

It’s a new year. A fresh start. An excuse to shed what’s not working and zone in on what is. A way to recalibrate, to reassemble, to pause. We can all get caught up in life’s big moments, but what about the minutiae? What about the beauty in the everyday? The magic in a morning coffee, the jingling of keys, a bedtime kiss?

Milestones matter, but so do mundane routines. It’s in those routines that we find comfort, rhythm, and, if we allow ourselves, joy. Here are some of our favorite scents for life’s simple moments at home.

The trickle of warm water on your skin. A cloud of steam. A deep inhale. A clean slate. Breathe Essential Oil Blend diffuses in your bathroom while you shower to encourage deep, cleansing exhales. The combination of Eucalyptus, Cajeput, Tea Tree, and Peppermint starts your day on a high note. You begin again.

Morning coffee

The grind of beans, the drip of espresso. Golden diffuses in a beam of sunlight; its blend of Peppermint, Lavender, Grapefruit, and Ginger puts you in a good mood. Smells like a carefree day. You can’t help but smile.

Fresh sheets

The chyme of the dryer. Gathering warm bed sheets in your arms. The sultry, dry scent of Dusk floats through the air; that mix of Ho Wood and Frankincense is hard to beat. Sophisticated and comforting. A beautiful pause.


The familiar whir of the bedside diffuser. Soothing Sleep Blend floats through the air with its powdery notes of Roman Chamomile, Vetiver, Frankincense, and Lavender. Soft and serene, it transports you to dreamland.


A fresh cloth. Glistening counters. Swept floors. Herbal, fresh, and watery Pacific—thanks to Basil, Amyris, and Bergamot—is in the air. A clean home and clarity of mind.

The latest Natural Habitat in your hands. A soft velvet armchair. Flipping through the pages. Retreat in your diffuser transports you to an infinity pool overlooking palm trees and a glistening ocean. The scent has Grapefruit, Palmarosa, and Eucalyptus to channel a fancy beach hotel. Close your eyes for a second—you can almost hear the ocean.


Hands placed firmly on your mat—grounded. Grove diffuses a woodsy mix of Cedarwood, Spruce, Fir, and Pine. Refreshing and invigorating. Feeling back in your body. A sigh of relief.


Sitting on a boucle rug. Grabbing the journal from the couch. Moonbeam diffuses; with top notes of Wild Orange, Rose, and Jasmine, it smells like blooming flowers and big ideas. A moment in time but a feeling that lingers. The year is yours for the taking.
