I love candles, and I always have. A fresh apple or a tart cranberry scent always reminded me of the season. But I don’t love the chemicals candles emit and I stopped using them long ago because of it. But I miss them. I wanted to have great scents in the house and I know I’m not the only one. Who doesn’t love great smells? So now what?
I diffuse essential oils and can have all the smells back in my house, yay! Essential oils are becoming more popular then ever, and for good reason, they’re truly amazing. The Essential Oils Market is projected to exceed 11 billion in sales by 2022.
When I started using essential oils and I realized I could have amazing scents in the house that were non-toxic, I was so happy. Plus, not only are the oils non-toxic, they are healthful. Win-win. Here are my three favorite oil blends for diffusing this season:
I know, I know, Christmas is over. But this blend smells so, so good. I ordered it last year before the season started, but it quickly became one of my favorites!
Ginger, Cinnamon, Clove, Grapefruit (1 drop of each)
My Gram used to slowly simmer whole cloves, cinnamon sticks, and various citrus peels in water. Once heated, this combination warms the house through scent and steam. My essential oil blend gives you the same scents, minus the peels and add-ins. And here’s the link to try the original recipe for stove top potpourri.
Oregano, Thieves (1 drop of each)
Yes, this is one of my favorites, no matter the season. But I especially love it late in the year and throughout the beginning of the new year. It smells like Christmas and truly great. (Plus it keeps me healthy and well. What’s not to love?)
