DIY Aromatherapy: 3 Holiday Diffuser Blend Recipes

Blending essential oils into an amber bottle. Holiday essential oil blends use seasonal essential oils to diffuse around the home.

A diffusing essential oil blend is a fun way to spread pleasant aromas throughout any space. Expensive and synthetically perfumed candles can be tempting with their bright colors and familiar aromas of candy canes, apple pie, and evergreen cheer, but diffusing pure essential oils at home or work is a wonderfully natural way to scent a room with seasonal aromas. I hope these holiday-inspired blends bring a smile to your face!

Different essential oils used to blend holiday themed aromas for use around the house. A terra cotta essential oil diffuser in the background is lit with a beeswax tea light. Cinnamon leaf essential oil, benzoin resin essential oil, sweet orange essential oil, and nutmeg essential oil.

These recipes are specifically created in parts to allow for easy measuring of any size batch. They can be counted in drops or teaspoons, and even sized up to a rather large recipe if needed! Follow the instructions for your diffuser, as different styles will call for slightly different quantities of essential oil. Feel free to experiment with these recipes and make substitutions to fit your personal style!

These recipes are also great to use as inspiration for winter-themed perfume blends, aroma sprays, or to use in fabulous DIY body care recipes for yourself or loved ones. Use our handy Essential Oil Dilution Chart to calculate the right dilution for a skin-safe blend. We always recommend between 1-2% essential oils in any recipe to avoid potential skin irritation.
