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.
