NATURAL ESSENTIAL OILS — Lavender, Pine, Cedarwood 
Aromatherapy Essential Oils

Aromatherapy has become more mainstream and popular over the last few years as people search for more natural remedies to ailments and staying healthy. Adding essential oils to your daily life can help fight colds and flu symptoms, relax your body, soothe sore muscles and heal skin conditions.
Finesse Home Essential Oils

Having an environmental science background, I have always been very wary of anything being injested or inhaled, and it is a standard that I not only have for my family but my customers too. I did a lot of research and investigated at least 20 different companies supplying essential oils (since January), before I found a supplier
I am comfortable with.

Finesse Home has been a trusted supplier of essential oils for over 20 years (they have not just jumped on the popularity bandwagon). The company has built a reputation for supplying the highest quality, first distilled, 100% pure essential oils free of artificial carriers and diluents. What sets their essential oils apart, is that Finesse Home buys from the actual European distilleries - each oil is from the country from which that plant is native to (country of origin and its botanical name is on each essential oil bottle) for the highest quality. Most other companies have oils that come from plants that have been grown elsewhere and a lot of times they could not always confirm the origin.

You will find a selection of single essential oils as well as blends that have been developed for specific remedies. As well, we also stock Finesse Home's high quality carrier oils that you add a few drops of essential oil to (for massages and skin applications) and are used by massage therapists and Spa's across Canada.

Ultrasonic Diffusers

By far the best method to diffuse aromatherapy essential oils. This cold-air diffusion technology creates small vibrations which creates a cool vapour thus preserving the integrity of the oils (as compared to heating it). The systems release scents in a micro-mist to ensure precise diffusion that is both noticeable and efficient in any sized location. It is ideal for use in the bedroom, family room, or office.

Seasonal Scent recommendations for winter include Sweet Orange, Cinnamon Leaf, Wintergreen, and Fir Needle. Stop by in store to smell a weekly tester scent.

Developed and manufactured in Canada.
Lampe Berger
If you are not already familiar with Lampe Berger, it is a catalytic diffusion system that  purifies the air in your home while diffusing fragrances and eliminating household odours. Perfect to use for an hour before guests are arriving!

This time of year, customers tend to switch to musky (brown labels) and sweet (orange labels) scent categories of Lampe Berger fuels. These categories have become more popular and there are lots of new introductions in these categories in the last year - we carry them ALL.

Made in France

Christmas Decorating

The best advice is to get your decorating
done EARLY. Although some of you might think November is too early
to decorate, the quality of artificial greens available means having the decorating done when you have more time and can enjoy doing it. Many customers have commented that spreading it out a couple of days or a week (with a glass of wine and holiday music) long before the busyness of December parties and entertaining
is the best way to prepare.

This year we have continued
with the same popular colour combinations...
Timeless Trimmings
  Sparkle and glitter in shades of gold, copper, and cream make this tree timeless

Starry Night

Beautiful ornaments in shades of silver and white create the magic and wonder
of a starry night

  Santas and snowmen, and other interesting things red, green and gold create this elegant traditional Christmas tree 
Quality Greens

Many times a season I am asked by customers why their finished tree or garland doesn't look as nice as what they see at Crafted Decor even though they have collected beautiful ornaments and trim over the years. The main mistake people make is in the quality of the greenery base. 
Whether you are buying a new tree, or garland don't compromise on quality when it comes to your greenery base. If you purchase quality it will look amazing for years AND make everything you put on it more beautiful as well. While it may be a bigger investment than fresh in the first years, quality artificial greens will not only last, they will save you time when you need it most. Having the time to decorate on your own schedule rather than having to do everything close to the holidays allows you to enjoy the fruits of your labour and have the house festively adorned whenever guests are over. 
How to Evenly Light Garland

Thought you might like a recap of the garland lighting DYI I did last year...
Phyllis and I have had the pleasure of designing many wreaths, centerpieces and garlands over the years. Many years ago I figured out HOW to light garland so that the lights where evenly spaced apart. When lights are on a garland, uneven spacing is very visible, and there is nothing more frustrating than having to undo all the lights and start again. These how-to videos explain the procedure we use to get it right the first time and every time...
