There's no denying the power of fragrance, especially around the holidays. A whiff of spicy ginger, cinnamon, or clotted cream can conjure up memories of just about every merry moment of years past. Then there's burnt sugar, peppermint, and steamy cocoa. I'm getting excited just thinking about it. I can't wait to purchase a few products that'll have me dreaming of all that holiday goodness weeks before I start assembling decorations.
With that in mind, I pulled together a few favorite body products with scents of pine, cloves, and muddled plum (not to mention every festive scent in between). With these in tow, there's no way you'll be able to avoid the holiday spirit. Keep scrolling for all the goods.
One of the brand's best-selling scented formulas, the Fresh Cream Body Lotion contains macadamia seed and olive fruit oils, shea butter, and antioxidants to help hydrate, soothe, and soften your skin. It absorbs quickly while the fresh cream scent lightly warms your skin and leaves you feeling properly moisturized and filled with festive cheer.
Light and easy to apply, Rituals' rich and velvety-soft cream offers a unique blend of antioxidants, vitamin E, and centella asiatica, all of which help strengthen your skin. Perhaps the best part, though, is the sweet orange and cedarwood scent, which envelops your whole body with the warm and wonderful scent of the holidays.
Made with natural essential oils and plant-derived ingredients, Mrs. Meyer's is a mainstay liquid hand soap in practically every bathroom across the country. This particular one, though, imparts the loveliest orange clove scent to fill the room with spicy holiday goodness.
Using sweet almond, apricot kernel, and shea butter oils to deeply moisturize your skin, C. Booth's Vanilla Butter Body Lotion firms, defends against damage, and smooths with a warm vanilla scent meant to leave you feeling blissful.
For a shower oil, this is by far the most decadent. The foaming oil-to-milk texture is soft and rich in almond oil, warming your entire body with a satiny-smooth formula and scent. It's rich in omega-6 fatty acids to help soften your skin and works better than any shaving cream you'll ever use.
Featuring pure cane sugar crystals to gently slough away dry skin cells, as well as cold-pressed coconut and sweet almond oils to deeply moisturize your skin, this invigorating, minty formula leaves skin feeling supple and soft and smelling of sweet peppermint.
Made to hydrate, tone, and help diminish the appearance of cellulite, Eminence's formula enriches your skin with essential vitamins and antioxidants as calendula replenishes moisture to firm and tighten. That, and it smells like an absolute holiday dream.
Molton Brown is known for its holiday scents, and this year it definitely didn't disappoint. Juniper Berries is a limited-edition fragrance that features notes of Lapp pine, oakmoss, and musk to turn your shower or bath into a holiday fête of its own.
A surefire way to have a holly, jolly Christmas? To lather your body in this holly-scented shea butter body cream, of course. Notes of sycamore wood, zest grapefruit, and fresh magnolia mix with the holly base to create a delight for the body and the senses.
This multi-tasking body and hair care product works as a shower gel, bubble bath, and even shampoo. It's gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin and festive enough for anyone hoping to get in the holiday spirit while sudsing up.
