The Dahl Farmhouse

In 1999 my husband Jon and I purchased an abandoned 100 year old farm house in Texas.

With determination, love, hard work and the help of our family, together we restored what was once an abandoned-run down-farmhouse and transformed it into a beautiful home filled with love, laughter and a lot of wonderful memories.

I’ve spent the past few years sharing decor and seasonal designs of our home, The Dahl Farmhouse on Instagram @thedahlfarmhouse. What I’ve never shared, but have always been passionate about is creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in our home using scent to capture the beauty of mother nature each season.

My passion for scent began when I was a little girl. I grew up on 3 acres in the Texas hill country. Mountain Laurel grew wild and every spring the branches would bloom with beautiful and fragrant blossoms. Growing up I would wake up early to the sound of the lawnmower every Saturday morning. From March until April,while the blossoms bloomed and the weather permitted, I would throw open my window and the scent of freshly cut grass combined with the scent of Mountain Laurel would fill my room.

The science behind scent and smell.

The sense of smell is unique among our five senses. Memories, emotions and feelings are often triggered by our sense of smell. The limbic system in the brain controls emotions, memory and creativity. The olfactory system of the brain processes smell. When we smell, these two parts of the brain interact and are responsible for emotional memories.
Scent is a word that is used to describe a fragrance. We smell scents, therefore, scent has the power to evoke memories which then can affect what we are feeling (emotionally and physically).
These days how we feel in our home is more important than ever. How we feel is directly related to how our home looks and smells.
For the past 12 months I have been working on developing a line of fresh and clean seasonal scents intended to capture the wonderful smells of the seasons in our home. I began with Spring and I’ve worked hard to recreate the scent of spring from my childhood: freshly cut grass with a hint of blossoms covered in early morning dew.

My line will include 100% soy wax melts and linen sprays for the home. I use 100% phthalate free fragrance to create a light clean scent to capture each season.

Why Wax Melts?
Wax melts are a great flameless alternative to candles.
On a few too many occasions I have left candles burning while I am not at home. Scary! I made the switch from candles to electric wax melt warmers (set on timers) and now when I hurry out the door I don’t have to worry about open flames. NOTE: I will be introducing candles into the line for those brave enough for open flames. ;)

Why Soy Wax?
Soy wax is made from the oil of soybeans. The soy wax I use for my melts is eco-friendly, renewable, sustainable and 100% American grown. This is especially important to me. I grew up spending summers at my grandparents' soy bean and corn farm in Nebraska. NOTE: Soy is a thick wax. Soy candles and waxes typically have a softer and lighter scent than those made with paraffin.

Hand Crafted:
The Dahl Farmhouse wax melts and linen and room spray are crafted by hand, by me, in small batches in my kitchen. Wax melts are then cured and stored for two weeks.

The Dahl Farmhouse Seasonal Scents capture the clean, light and fresh scent of each season.

Enjoy!
