Many folks don’t have the luxury (or hassle) of a live Christmas tree each year, but there’s still a way to enjoy that refreshing evergreen scent. All you need are a few essential oils and you’ll have your own Christmas essential oils blend!
Would you believe that I’ve never once had a real tree at Christmas time? Growing up, we always had an artificial one because of family allergies and my mom didn’t like messy needles. Plus she was a Christmas nut, meaning the tree went up the day after Thanksgiving, and stayed up well past the new year (only an artificial could stay up that long!)
I have inherited the Christmas nuttiness and I truly do believe this is the most wonderful time of the year. Some say though that I’m totally missing out on a real tree, because my home doesn’t have the authentic Christmas smell of an evergreen that so many know and love.
My solution? Here’s a simple Christmas essential oils blend you can make yourself! The pure natural smell of the essential oils is as close as it gets to the real thing, plus it’s inexpensive since a little goes a long way.
With this Christmas essential oils blend in your diffuser, you’ll enjoy a wonderful all-natural holiday aroma throughout your home.
What You’ll Need for this Christmas Essential Oil Blend:
For this fragrant Christmas essential oil blend, I use pine, cinnamon leaf, clove bud, and Texas cedarwood essential oils. I bought the Aura Cacia brand from my grocery store, but you can use whichever brand you prefer.
For this essential oil blend, you can use a cool mist diffuser, but I personally prefer an oil warmer diffuser because I think the scent is intensified by the heat, and I just love using candles whenever I can this time of year! I used a Tealight Oil Warmer Diffuser – very similar to mine and it costs just $4.90! You can find other options over here.
If you do use a tea light warmer, be sure to add 2 tablespoons of water to the glass plate first, then add the oils. Your burn time will be much longer that way!
Add this amount to your diffuser:
1 drop of Pine Essential Oil
1 drop of Cedarwood Essential Oil
1 drop of Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
1 drop of Clove Bud Essential Oil
This combination gives off a lovely aroma for about an hour or two. The oil and water at that point are about dried up – so you can blow out the candle or simply refill. Be sure to keep an eye on it – if you burn the glass too long without anything in it, you can crack the glass!
There are also health benefits to inhaling these Christmas scents!
Cinnamon Essential Oil can be used for circulation, seasonal threats, coughs, exhaustion, environmental threats, and even warts.
Pine Essential Oil helps soothe mental stress, relieve anxiety, freshen and deodorize a room, and revitalize the entire body.
Cedarwood Essential Oil helps acne, anxiousness, stiff joints, congestion, dandruff, sinus troubles, and water retention.
Clove Essential Oil can be used to help clean scrapes, memory deficiency, healthy lungs, infectious acne, and fatigue.
These are not complete lists of benefits, but will give you some information on how making your house smell wonderful can also increase your health!
