Christmas may still be months away, but we’re already counting down the days. Clearly, we’re not alone in our excitement, as stores are already rolling out holiday collections.
Love holiday candles and all things cozy? Then you’re going to flip for these calming essential oils that smell exactly like Christmas.
If you could bottle up the Christmas spirit, it would smell like Young Living’s signature holiday scent, aptly named Christmas Spirit. Orange, cinnamon bark, and spruce come together in a warm, joyful blend.
Of course, Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without a little spice (think cider recipes, bourbon cough syrup, and rosemary turkey recipes). Enter the nostalgic notes of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary found in the Thieves blend.
Meanwhile, other brands offer Christmas wreath- and Christmas tree-inspired essential oil blends that are just as holly-jolly.
You can always create your own blends this season with special Christmas scents. One whiff of cool peppermint summons visions of red-and-white-striped candy canes and frost-covered fields.
The wintery, woodsy aroma of the Idaho balsam fir essential oil will help recall the reason for the season, and soft, sweet cedarwood is an earthy complement to brighter aromas.
Fresh and floral, (fa, la, la, la) lavender is loved all year long, but the soothing scent is especially useful during the stressful holiday season. Sleep in heavenly peace, indeed.
Add a few drops to your essential oil diffuser to make the whole house smell like Christmas, or apply topically to your temples, neck, and behind your ears for instant relaxation.
It’s important to find the best essential oil diffuser. Make sure that your essential oil diffuser is ready to go for next year by learning how to clean an essential oil diffuser.
