Promos with holiday theme

As we pack away the rest of the Thanksgiving leftovers and bring the Christmas decorations down from the attic, it’s a perfect time to enjoy diffusing and blending essential oils that will help get us into the spirit of the holiday season.

These essential oils give us the smell of Christmas and help us relax on those hectic evenings of running from the Christmas pageant to a neighborhood cookie exchange; while another blend may give us that extra bump of energy to get us through the seemingly endless days of preparations, classroom parties and last minute gifting.

Northern Lights Black Spruce

Diffuse this vibrant, woodsy, and energizing scent during meditation for a calming and centering experience. Northern Lights Black Spruce is perfect for settling in after a busy day. You just might find yourself humming a carol or two as visions of sugar plums dance through your head. 

If I had to pick just ONE essential oil that reminds me of a live Christmas tree, this would be Northern Lights Black Spruce.  It smells absolutely heavenly in the diffuser!

Idaho Balsam Fir

Idaho Balsam Fir has a mild but deeply rich aroma that is woody, yet sweet with a very subtle hint of citrus to it. It is both uplifting and comforting, and combined with a few drops of Orange and Christmas Spirit in a diffuser, reminds me of twinkling lights, warm cups of cocoa and gingerbread cookies.

Idaho Blue Spruce

I love the smell of most Christmas trees, but I am really loving the Idaho Blue Spruce. It has a crisp, newly fallen snow aroma. When the rush of the season leaves me longing for an afternoon on the couch with a bowl of soup, I find diffusing this essential oil to be energizing and stimulating. In short order I am feeling focused, optimistic and ready to take on the day.


Not only does Pine essential oil bring memories of gathering around the tree on Christmas morning, it can also be used to deodorize your rooms. When the weather prevents you from opening the windows for some fresh air diffuse pine essential oils for the sensation of pure, fresh air.

Use these essential oils alone, blend them together or use one as a base for your own unique fragrance.

Evergreen essential oils diffuser blend

To bring the scent of a new green wreath on your front door indoors try the Evergreen Wreath blend. To get the outdoors in just blend

  • 4 drops of Balsam Fir

for that amazing fresh-cut smell!

The smell of fresh cut Christmas trees is a nostalgic aroma that brings feelings of joyous anticipation and fond memories of Christmases past to many.

Whether you are decorating with an artificial tree or the magical scent of Christmas has faded away from your cut tree, diffusing essential oils can bring those feelings back all season long, without any harsh chemical fragrances.
