Holiday Scents are part of what make the Christmas season feel like Christmas. From the tree to cookies baking to cider and eggnog, you can now easily bring your favorite holiday scents to life throughout the season.

Instead of using artificial fragrances and fake air fresheners, use pure essential oils to scent your home the natural way. You can of course purchase pre-made Christmas diffuser blends, but making your own holiday blends is easy to do and is a great way to bring the holiday spirit into your home.

Ways to Use These Blends

You can use these essential oil blends in so many ways.

1) Use them in your favorite essential oil diffuser like an ultrasonic diffuser (or a reed diffuser).

2) Combine with a carrier oil like sweet almond oil or fractionated coconut oil and dilute to a safe level for use on your wrists or neck.

3) Drop the oils into a spray bottle filled with filtered water to make a room spray. Sheets and towels and air vents are a great places to start. Shake well before using or use an essential oil emulsifier to keep the oils evenly distributed in the water.

4) Put a few drops in essential oil jewelry and wear it around. This healthy jewelry is based around neodymium magnets for added health benefits. Each magnet is 4000 gauss and there are loads of studies on the benefits of these magnets.

Following are lots of holiday essential oil diffuser recipes with the number of drops of essential oils you'll need for each blend. Simply combine, use, and enjoy. These scents are practically Christmas cheer in a bottle.
