The holiday season is upon us again, and Christmas is almost here. In some areas, the first snow has already fallen, blanketing the land in white. For those of us who love diffusing essential oils, this cozy time of year is when the sweet scents of winter are taken out of the cupboard.
It's pretty easy to find pre-made essential oil blend for Christmas, but it's easy to make your own Christmas essential oil blend. You'll save money making your own and the process can be a lot of fun. Plus, you can experiment and adjust to your own preferences. To get started, try these recipes!
