Our senses do a wonderful job of getting us in the holiday spirit. We hear an old song that we used to play decorating the tree and are instantly carried back to cherished memories of Christmases past. Or we bake mom’s traditional cookie recipe and suddenly feel right at home. Smelling essential oils can also play a magical and powerful role in capturing the holidays. Oils such as cedar, peppermint, citrus and more carry the essence of the season, evoking memories while also elevating our mood. Below are 4  essential oils that you can diffuse or use creatively to get anyone in the holiday spirit and bring a touch of aromatic bliss to your celebrations.

  1. Cedar Floral Blend: Nothing says "holiday" quite like the warm and comforting scent of cedar. Our Cedar Floral essential oil blend adds a comforting and nostalgic touch to your space with its familiar woodsy notes complemented by delicate floral hints. Its irresistible aroma will evoke memories of decorating the tree and is known for its grounding and calming properties, making it an ideal choice for infusing your home with holiday joy. 

Tip: Apply a few drops to your seasonal decor like pine cones, wreathes, or even ornaments to inject holiday scent throughout the home.

  1. Peppermint Essential Oil: Peppermint is a classic holiday scent that instantly uplifts the atmosphere. The crisp and cool aroma of peppermint essential oil can create a refreshing ambiance, reminiscent of candy canes and winter festivities.  Peppermint oil is also known for its invigorating properties, making it perfect for boosting energy during the busy holiday season.

Tip: Keep a bottle with you or make a personal inhaler to sniff while you’re out holiday shopping or navigating stressful travel to keep you energized and motivated.

  1. Orange Essential Oil: The sweet and citrusy fragrance of orange essential oil brings a burst of freshness to holiday celebrations. This uplifting scent is reminiscent of ripe oranges and can help create a positive and vibrant atmosphere. Orange oil is also known for its mood-enhancing properties, making it an excellent choice for promoting a cheerful ambiance and helping to relieve any holiday blues.

Tip: Make your orange DIY garland smell even better by dotting it with orange essential oil. Hang in a common space and watch the joy spread.

  1. Frankincense Essential Oil: For a touch of luxury and spiritual depth, consider incorporating frankincense essential oil into your holiday routine. With its warm, resinous scent, frankincense promotes relaxation and a sense of tranquility. This ancient oil has been used in various cultures for ceremonial and festive purposes, making it a meaningful addition to your holiday traditions.

Tip: Add several drops to a hot shower, and cover the drain. While showering, inhale deeply, and let all of your holiday stress melt away.

Let the magic of aromatherapy tap you into the joy and nostalgia of the holiday season. Whether you diffuse, inhale, decorate with or apply to skin – using essential oils around this time of year will help you not only enjoy the season, but allow you to feel peaceful and uplifted while doing so. 

Note: It's important to note that any essential oil should be used with caution. It is recommended to dilute it with a carrier oil before applying it to the skin and to perform a patch test to check for any potential allergic reactions
