Diffuser Recipe Ideas:
Whether you live in a part of the country that gets snow in the wintertime, or you do not get to experience those little frozen flakes, it still seems like snow is synonymous with the holidays. There is a crisp, cool scent that wafts through the air after a freshly fallen snow. It is magical and mysterious. It is a scent that can easily put you back in time to a place where all of your favorite memories live… dressed up like a penguin, gathering with your friends, and sledding down that fluffy, white hill. Recreate that time and place in your own home with this blend.
Once you have come in from the snow, you might be looking to cuddle up in front of a warm fire. Essential Oils can produce that feeling of warmth for you, the same way those amber flames do. Deep, spicy scents like Clove and Cinnamon help to heat up your heart and soul. Woody oils like Cedarwood and Cypress are grounding and calming. As a bonus, these oils are great for supporting a healthy respiratory system. Mixing them all together creates a blend that is sure to comfort you and induce feelings reminiscent of sitting by a cozy fire with your family and a hot cup of cocoa.
Mmmm! The smell of freshly baked cookies is definitely a favorite for most people, especially during the holidays. It is warm and sweet and a little spicy. It is incredibly welcoming, and a great smell to have in your home when company is on its way. We don’t always have the opportunity to bake up a fresh batch of cookies, but we certainly can recreate the scent with a few fragrant Essential Oils. Maybe you will be so inspired, that you just might bake up a batch anyway.
Three Wise Men
Did you know that essential oils date back to biblical times and beyond? These precious oils are mentioned over 180 times in the Bible! In fact, the three wise men actually brought gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh to baby Jesus. These referenced oils are very useful to help enhance feelings of spirituality. Frankincense is amazing for regulating breathing and helping you feel rooted. Myrrh Essential Oil is earthy and relaxing, but can also encourage spiritual awakening. Hyssop is often referred to as the “Holy Herb” and is beneficial when needing purification. All three of these biblical oils can create an uplifting Christmas blend that can help you feel more centered during the holidays.
The holidays are a beautiful time of year. It’s incredibly meaningful to give to others and spend time with family, but often it can be overwhelming. Between the shopping, cooking, traveling, and money spent, sometimes you just want to have a “silent night” at home. This blend is specifically for that. Mix these calming oils together and use in your diffuser to create a serene space that can help your unwind and renew during this busy time of year.
