Whilst reading The Little Book of Hygge book in my cosy bath, with my candles lit and essential oil blends, surrounded by house plants whilst drinking herbal tea (yes in the bath), I was inspired to make a blend that puts all that cosiness into one scent. And what a perfect name for it too. Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a part of my self-care practice and without realising it, until I read the book, it always has been. My Hygge is a time to hibernate away from the world in my cosy knit jumper, hot tea and nice smells.
I hope you enjoy Hygge blend as much as I do and I hope this scent will help encourage you to chill out more, spend quality cosy time with family and friends and enjoy the little things in life.
Hygge is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special.
“Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world and allow ourselves to let our guard down.”

- By adding essential oils to your bath, you inhale the oils whilst the warm water evaporates them. Add 3-5 drops of pure oil to the warm running water, and agitate the water to ensure an even distribution of the oils. As an alternative, you can also add 5 drops to 15ml of carrier oil or add 5 drops to a cup of whole milk, and add this to your bath for a nourishing soak.
- To create Hygge atmosphere and scent in your cosy candlelit room, add 3-5 drops into an aroma diffuser or oil burner, with the correct level of water.
- Inhalation of this blend is one of the best ways to benefit from its wonderful properties. When we inhale essential oils, the highly sensitive cells in the back of our nostrils are stimulated which sends signals straight to the brain, so relax and inhale deep. So get your chunky knit and slippers on, and snuggle up on the sofa with a bottle of Hygge.
