Only 2 weeks today until Christmas, can you believe it! Time has been flying so fast this year! Today I wanted to share some great ways to use essential oils this Christmas! These are all super easy items that you can implement in very little time!
As an added benefit, these ideas are a great way to introduce essential oils to friends and family who many be visiting this holiday season!
How to Use Essential Oils this Holiday Season
I made these ornaments last year and I love them (I realize I am likely biased haha). They were packed safely but the clay held up well and they look the same this year as the did last year! The scent did go away over the year in storage though so I had to add a few drops of oil to each ornament this year which was super easy to do! You can use any oils you like. You can either do all of your ornaments the same or mix it up with different scents!
Scented Holiday Centerpieces
Do you make your own holiday centerpieces? If you are using any wooden components such as twigs, bark or pine cones then you can add oils to your creation! Imagine a centerpiece that is free of flowers but still smells amazing!! I would start by adding 1 or 2 drops to your centerpiece and go from there. Choose any scent you like, if I was doing this I would likely choose to use cinnamon!
One of my favourite things about using essential oils around the holidays is that you can change the scent each day with very little effort! Also it is a great natural scent alternative to air fresheners and other scented items.
Holiday Joy– One of my favourite essential oil blends for the holiday season is called Holiday Joy and is made my doTERRA! The best way I can describe the scent of Holiday Joy is ‘Christmas-in-a-bottle’. Learn more about Holiday Joy.

Make your own foaming hand soap using this recipe and add the holiday scent of your choice to it! Some scents that come to mind are Holiday Joy, Peppermint, Spearmint or Douglas Fir! Really you can add any oil you like! I am tempted to try cinnamon (because I love the scent this time of year) but since it is a ‘hot oil’ I have decided not to use it.
