I’m a big fan of essential oils to heal injuries and ailments, but another benefit to these oils is that they smell AMAZING! Single oils are great to diffuse, but blends are even better.

We love essential oils in our house. They are such a great way for us to pursue natural wellness! Not only that, oils have been a pivotal step in our transition to a toxin-free household. We have gradually switched out our toxic cleaning products, cosmetics, toiletries, etc. and most of them I now make myself. This is not just better for my family, but it saves us money too!
We have diffusers running in our home 24 hours a day. That’s right – even at night! We have a diffuser in each bedroom and then one in our main living area. I typically diffuse oils for the benefits, but during the Christmas season, I love to diffuse combinations that have those holiday smells we all love. Since ditching candles in our home, this is an excellent alternative! Here are some of my favorite blends to diffuse during Christmas-time.
Deck the Halls
4 drops Christmas Spirit essential oil blend
2 drops Orange essential oil
2 drops Rosemary essential oil
This combination instantly makes me feel joyful. We diffused it while decorating our home for Christmas and it sure put us in the mood. You may be interested to know that we typically decorate for Christmas the first or second week in November. We love this time of year!
2 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil
2 drops Nutmeg essential oil
2 drops Ginger essential oil
2 drops Bergamot essential oil
If you’re looking for a blend that makes you think of baking Christmas cookies, this is it. It almost makes me feel hungry when I smell it. I love to diffuse this throughout the fall and winter! You can also add in some Orange essential oil for a little extra sweetness.
3 drops Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil
3 drops Pine essential oil
2 drops Clove essential oil
My favorite holiday scents have always been the more earthy ones. I love this combination because it smells just like a Christmas tree! We have an artificial tree in our home, so I love that this reminds me of a real tree. In fact, I will soak little wooden sticks in these oils (like those coffee stirring sticks, for example), and stick them throughout my artificial Christmas tree.
4 drops Frankincense essential oil
2 drops Cedarwood essential oil
2 drops Vetiver essential oil
This blend makes me think of Christmas Eve night. The Frankincense has such a reverent scent, and makes this blend very special. Cedarwood and Vetiver are extremely calming and relaxing oils, so this combination may actually make your eyes droopy. This may be a good one to calm down those excited kiddos the night before Christmas!
Let It Snow
3 drops Peppermint essential oil
3 drops Pine essential oil
2 drops Christmas Spirit essential oil blend
This minty, festive, blend makes me imagine my front yard covered in white, fluffy snow. The Peppermint oil will wake you right up (one my my favorite oils for a boost of natural energy), while the Christmas Spirit has a spicy, cinnamon scent. I add in the Pine to make the whole blend a little more earthy (I told you I prefer those scents).
Give these blends a try, this Christmas season, or be creative and come up with your own!
