5 Ways To Keep Yourself Warm and Cozy This Autumn
It's coming towards that time of the year again where the temperatures plummet, fevers become more prominent, and gas and heating bills stagger! As we approach these seasonal changes I thought I'd share some tips on how to stay warm and cozy, in a more sustainable way!
1) Bring the Outside Environment Inside
If you are an outdoorsy person who loves to be surrounded by nature the cooler and darker days can feel gloomy. They don't need to be! You can introduce plenty of nature into your home through botanical prints and plants. Displays of warm-toned seasonal flowers such as dahlias and mum flowers are perfect for introducing some Autumn styling. Also, dried plants such as pampas grass and wheat mixed with flowers are a great long-lasting sustainable option.
2) Baking Your Favourite Treats
The Autumn and Winter months are an ideal time to wind down and bake! Not only do you get to indulge in your artisan baked goods, it's also quiet therapeutic to bake, especially on a cold or wet afternoon. Imagine the smell of a freshly baked apple tart, a warm pudding dessert or your favourite bread. That's proper comfort food! And if you want your bread to last longer, our Millbee Reusable Bread Wraps work great.
3) The Treasure of Beeswax Candles
Candles generate a fair amount of warmth, but most importantly add that extra special presence of light to your home! As referenced in the introduction, heating bills are skyrocketing. Candles can help to add a warm ambiance to your home. Millbee's beeswax candles give the warmest glow. In fact, beeswax candles emit light that is similar to the light spectrum of sunlight!
4. Warm & cozy fabrics
Covering yourself with a quality throw will help regulate your body temperature, keeping you warm and cosy during the Autumn and Winter. Check out Mc Nutt of Donegal, they sell a beautiful range of soft soft merino lambswool throws with lots of warm tones. Wearing Slippers and wool socks are another way to add coziness or hygge in your home! Check out these sustainable wool slippers from Reuzi
5. Introduce warm and comforting scents
When it comes to Autumn, earthy, citrus and spicy scents come to mind. You can introduce warm scents through a diffuser or scented candles. We're currently working on new scented candles for the upcoming season and we are really excited to showcase these products to you!
