Festive Aromas — 9 Holiday Essential Oil Blends
By Caryn Gehlmann, Clinical Aromatherapist
What’s the first thing you notice when you walk in the door of someone’s home? Often it’s the aroma that fills the air, especially if they have pie or cookies in the oven! If you want to add a festive aroma to your home, we have recipes for nine different holiday essential oil blends to share with you. They’re so scrumptious, you’re going to want to sniff them all year round!
We love it when our customers ask us to make some holiday blends. It’s so much fun brainstorming different ideas, experimenting with different scents, and “listening” to your nose.
Holiday Essential Oil Blends Make Good Memories
The aroma of fir boughs, oranges, apples, cinnamon, and other spices…are these wrapped up in your holiday memories? They are in mine.
What memories do these different holiday aromas bring up for you?
One of the easiest things to do is to add these holiday essential oil blends to a diffuser in your room. However, if you don’t have a diffuser, there are easy alternatives. You can add the essential oils to a small bowl of salt (table salt or sea salt works). Or you can apply 2-4 drops of essential oil on several tissues or cotton balls and place them around the room or tuck into the grate of a fan or air vent in your home. (Please note, place cotton balls or tissues on a surface that will not be damaged by contact with essential oils.)
My personal favorite of these holiday essential oil blends is Happy New Year Blend! Would you like to learn how to make your own essential oil blends? For tips and recipes, grab a copy of our downloadable free ebook, Listen to Your Nose – An Introduction to Aromatherapy.
