The senses are one of the best ways to set a mood, and that includes the “holiday spirit.” While the decorations in your RV stimulate the eyes and those holiday jingles playing on the radio stimulate the ears, your nose might be feeling left out.
This doesn’t have to be the case though. There are quick and easy DIY projects you can do in your RV to give your space that holiday smell.
Make Your Own Potpourri Mix
Experiment with your own blend of dried fruits, spices, and flowers. Try things such as cranberries, oranges, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and nutmeg.
This very blend is actually great if you use it to make a stovetop potpourri (while your RV is not in motion, of course).
Take half a cup of fresh cranberries, 1 sliced orange, 4 cinnamon sticks broken in half, 1 tablespoon of cloves, an eighth teaspoon of nutmeg, and 2 or 3 cups of water. Combine all ingredients in a pot and simmer on low heat to fill your space with this Christmas scent.
Buy Scented Candles
Head to any store that sells scented candles and pick out a few that are holiday inspired. This time of year, there ought to be plenty of options on the shelf that are holiday themed. Like the stovetop potpourri, make sure that your RV is not in motion and that the candles are monitored at all times.
