Snow falls. You’re curled up with a chunky blanket in a toasty cabin.
Hot cocoa warms your hands, and you can’t decide between the biscotti or the scone. You’re in a state of comfort, what the Danish call hygge. Denmark’s own Ole Henriksen, founder of the famous Los Angeles spa that bears his name, recently described it like this:
“Hygge is all about being in the moment, feeling completely relaxed and centered, letting go of the hectic world around you. … No phones and computers allowed in those magical moments.”
Hygge moments don’t happen just at the spa — you can make them happen anywhere. They can be as simple as leaving work early, changing your dress clothes for sweatpants or meditating in a quiet room.
During the holidays, hygge can take the form of walking through the snowy woods or spending one-on-one time with an old friend or watching It’s a Wonderful Life for the 108th time. Hygge is doing what makes you feel content.
Let’s go back to that cozy cabin — even if it’s really just your own home. What could make your hygge experience even more relaxing? A hot bath maybe? Imagine being immersed in water infused with a fragrance so soothing to your senses, the only thing more rewarding is how soft it leaves your skin. It doesn’t have to be a dream. A moisturizing Scentsy Bath Bomb or Scentsy Soak can make it quite real.
Now you’re back on the couch, smelling sweet of Vanilla Bean Buttercream Body Cream, and you want everyone in your home to feel as hygge as you. We have just the thing: the Hygge Wax Collection. With fragrances like Calming Woods, Cozy Kitchen, Quiet Clementine, Toasty Cabin (of course!) and Woolly Slippers, you’ll spread the warm-and-cozies around with some serenity to spare.
