Home Fragrance Oil – what is it really?

by Carrie Moreau, Claire Burke® Product Development

Claire Burke Original Home Fragrance OilWe’ve been making changes, haven’t you noticed?  We’ve shed our old skin and had a makeover, we’ve added some new stunning fragrances and products, and we’ve even changed how we offer some of our products to you.  Gone are the days of votives only offered in 4 packs.  We now offer them individually.  This makes decorating and even trialing a new fragrance more economical.

AND…over the years you’ve known Claire Burke® for our amazing designer potpourri, our famous Home Fragrance Spray and even our Botanical Candles, you know the ones…that have the botanicals hand-placed ever so perfectly.  But…do you know us for our Home Fragrance Oil?  Well – we want you to!  For all of you home fragrance fanatics out there, I promise that this is a must have product.

Did you know that our Home Fragrance Oil is a 3-in-1 product?  “What do you mean by 3-in-1 product you ask?”  Well 1) dropping 20 or more drops of oil in any tealight oil warmer (works in a Scentsy® warmer too) and in moments, your favorite Claire Burke fragrance will come alive 2) yes, it’s a potpourri refresher oil, sprinkle the oil over your potpourri to revive the fragrance and 3) for any of you out there that love your light bulb ring – yes, this oil can be used with that as well! Light rings can be purchased on www.myclaireburke.com

We even redesigned the packaging; the bottle has a built-in dropper-type dispenser making it more user-friendly! Just tip it over and it will start to drip out. It’s even offered in all of the Claire Burke fragrances too!  I think all of the bases are covered with this one little bottle of oil – talk about bang for your buck!

OH, and….you’ll even be able to use our Home Fragrance Oil in the new accessory we are unveiling in February! Stay tuned to www.myclaireburke.com or the Claire Burke Facebook page for more information.

Remember your vacations, everyday.

by Kathleen G.

Hi, my name is Kathleen and I am a guest blogger for Claire Burke.  I have loved and used Claire Burke in my home for years.  I enjoy decorating my home with art and decorative accessories, being creative with color, and decorating for different seasons and holidays by mixing and matching fragranced products like candles, potpourri, and fragrance diffusers with an assortment of home décor accessories.  I hope to share with you some of my creative ways to decorate with fragrance!

My husband and I have a tradition of looking for a great piece of art when we go on every vacation.  It is our way of making certain we have something to “show” for the trip, as a reminder of all of the good times we had.  Over the years we have purchased some beautiful paintings which adorn the walls of our home, and often purchase fine glass vases as stylish decorative accessories.  I love to keep the memories of our vacation alive and do so by moving the various vases around my home, from room to room, mixing and matching them with other lovely pieces and coordinating them with a variety of Claire Burke fragranced products.  The vases are visually spectacular when I place a votive candle inside them.  The warm glow that flickers through the colors in the glass warm my heart.  In the span of 6 years, I have collected 4 decorative glass pieces that nearly match in their color and design so I often layer these pieces of art together.  I light candles inside them to set a mood in a particular corner of my living room.

This fall I have enjoyed using a variety of Applejack & Peel votive and tealight candles in these vases.  Additionally I transferred the reed diffuser fragrance (oh so carefully with a funnel in the kitchen sink) into one of the decorative bottles I had.  Now I enjoy the scent of Applejack & Peel in my entire living room!  This summer I have had many teenage boys traipsing through my house visiting my sons, and I always get a kick out of the fact that they tell me how great my house smells!  How my house always smells awesome and that different rooms have different scents!  They tell me they wish their house smelled so good – so I share my secret with them all…….Kathleen
