If you’re looking to create a festive, comforting essential oil blend for your family on Christmas Eve, you’ve come to the right place. This mixture will work best with an aromatherapy diffuser. Place a diffuser in the living room, kitchen, or anywhere else where your family will spend time on Christmas Eve. The oils you need for this blend include:
Making this blend is simple. All you need to do is place three drops of Sweet Orange, two drops of Peppermint, and three drops of the Pacific Northwest Blend into an aromatherapy diffuser. You’ll receive an instant dose of holiday freshness in your home on Christmas Eve.
The Sweet Orange essential oil has a light, fresh scent. We believe that is a necessary choice whenever people are gathering in a room. Not only does it smell excellent, but it also provides numerous health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties. Many users report that the citrus oil is beneficial for their skin health, especially in the winter months when skin tends to dry. This oil also helps alleviate depression, providing a morale boost during the holidays.
Our Peppermint essential oil is also an excellent choice as a room freshener. Many of our customers find that it helps them relax, as it relieves stress and sharpens the mind. Peppermint also stimulates the digestive system, which could be helpful when eating sweets on Christmas Eve. Lastly, Peppermint promotes overall health and carries antifungal and antibacterial properties, which could help ward off sickness that commonly plagues the holiday season.
Our Pacific Northwest blend is also vital to this holiday blend. The mixture contains various essential oils, including Pine, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Cypress, and Pine. We find that this blend has an incredible balancing effect, which will provide a sense of calm and peace to your Christmas Eve gathering. The combination also has powerful antioxidants, which can also work to boost your health.
