How to Use Essential Oils this Holiday Season
DIY Essential Oil Christmas Ornaments
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! Get the directions to make your own Essential Oil Scented Christmas Ornaments HERE!
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!
Holiday Diffuser Blends
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.

I have 5 new blends for 2017 that I am LOVING! These are great to make for yourself but they are also wonderful as Christmas gifts & stocking stuffers! See all 5 recipes HERE!
Christmas / Winter Themed Room Sprays
These sprays are wonderful for freshening up any room and smell so good (in my opinion)! There are lots of different sprays to choose from, including one to help you sleep! All of these sprays are great to have out for your family & holiday guests to enjoy but they also make wonderful Christmas gifts as well! Get all 6 recipes HERE!
Homemade Foaming Hand Soap
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.
