Christmas is right around the corner. The presents are getting wrapped, Christmas dinner is planned, and the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. And as you plan your holiday festivities, chances are you’ll want your home to smell just like Christmas. There are some pretty incredible holiday blends to choose from. Toy Soldier smells positively delicious, Candy Cane is sweet and refreshing. But to set the perfect holiday mood, it’s time to bring out the big guns. Here are five essential oil blends that will help your home smell just like Christmas.
*Keep in mind, if you’re hosting a large gathering, you will probably want to forgo diffusing as you never know how someone might react to essential oils.
Nothing enlivens the holiday spirit quite like holly berries. Decorating with the holly plant is one of the oldest wintertime traditions. The citrusy sweetness of Orange Blood, the crispness of Douglas Fir and Eucalyptus Dives, and the warm muskiness of Patchouli create the aroma of Christmas stockings filled with oranges next to the tree adorned with berries. The citrusy sweet, crisp, and warm aroma of Holly Berries is fantastic for Christmas morning.
The aroma of bright orange peel, spicy cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg are found in almost every household and are a part of holiday traditions and festivities. And so, nothing is quite as quintessentially Christmas as our Holiday Season blend. It brings the notes of Sweet Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Cinnamon Bark, Ginger Root CO2, Clove Bud, and Nutmeg together into a wonderful essential oil blend with a warm, spicy, citrusy scent. Plus we reformulated this blend this year to offer an even softer, more pleasing scent. It is now safe for topical application when diluted to 2% in a carrier.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, how we love that this blend makes up for the artificial tree we use every year. Blending Spruce Black and Fir Needle, Christmas Tree will fill your home with the aroma of a freshly cut tree. You can even add a couple drops of Douglas Fir for its clean piney scent that has just a hint of sweetness.
If you’re looking for a special Christmas Eve blend to set a holiday mood, this blend will fill your home with the spicy, festive smells of Bergamot, Balsam Fir, and Clove Bud. It smells so good you’ll want to keep this blend in your diffuser all year round.

Instead of being cozied up by the fireplace with the warm scents of cinnamon and clove, why not bring the fresh, cool and crisp aroma peppermint-candy scented sleigh ride in the snow indoors with Frosted Mint? The crisp, fresh aroma of Fir Needle with the woody scent of Virginian Cedarwood and the sweet cooling sensation of Spearmint is a perfect combination to remind you of a white Christmas.
