Holiday Diffuser Recipies

Fall is here and I am seriously loving the smell! I have another idea for a great holiday gift for you or for a friend. It is so inexpensive, so happy and so simple. Just mix essential oils in a spray bottle and spray furniture and surfaces, or use as an air purifier or linen spray. It can even be used as a or body spray.

I got these recipes from the "eotools" 12 sprays of Christmas class. I love the way the essential oil world is so generous with their recipes. So I want to share their beautiful work with my readers as well. Because they are not my recipes, I will share the oils, but not their exact measurements. You can find those on their website.  My favorite is Peppermint Stick.

Add the drops to a 2 oz spray bottle, add 1 T of rubbing alcohol and fill the rest of the way with water.

Alternately, add the drops called for to a diffuser and enjoy intermittent smell all day.

Here are 12 wonderful smells of Christmas: 

  • Gifts of the Magi - Frankincense and Myrrh
  • Dashing through the Pines - White Fir, Cypress and Cedarwood
  • Peppermint Stick - Holiday Blend and Peppermint
  • Merry & Bright - Protective Blend and Cardamom
  • Warm Winter Chai - Ginger, Clove, Cardamom, Black Pepper and Cinnamon
  • Carols by the Fire - Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Myrrh and Cypress
  • Gingerbread Cookies - Ginger, Clove and Cinnamon
  • Tannenbaum Forest -White Fir, Grapefruit and Frankincense
  • Christmas Potpourri - Cinnamon, White Fir, Clove Rosemary and Wild Orange
  • Spiced Hot Cider -  Cinnamon, Wild Orange and Clove
  • Holy Nativity -  Holiday Blend and Cassia
  • Vanilla Spice - Invigorating Blend and Cinnamon
**Some of these recipes call for blends. Each essential oils producer has their own trademarked blend names. Here is a key to identifying the correct one:
Protective blend will have some of the following: clove, cinnamon, orange, lemon, eucalyptus or rosemary 
Invigorating blend is a blend of citrus and vanilla
Holiday blend could include clove, cinnamon, orange, nutmeg, and a fir type of tree

More than just a wonderful smell! Here are some emotions addressed by aromatic use of these oils:

Cinnamon helps you to be more receptive.
Cassia helps you feel bold...my kind of liquid courage!
Frankincense is uplifting in general and sometimes, I can't get enough of it. It help you feel unified as well.
Myrrh helps you feel nurtured.
Citrus oils help you feel abundant and happy.
Clove brings the feeling that you are supported.
Use White Fir if you feel blocked. 
Use Cypress when you feel stalled. 

To get emotional benefits of these oils, spray pillow, body, or air or use in a diffuser and inhale with positive affirmations. Do as often as needed to feel better. My favorite way to use essential oils!
