Best Winter Essential Oils

I have said it before, and I will say it again... you can use ANY essential oil ANY time of the year, but there is something special about these aromatherapy oils that just make me enjoy them a little more during wintertime.

  • Cardamom
  • Clove
  • Cypress
  • Ginger
  • Fir
  • Myrrh
  • Nutmeg
  • Peppermint
  • Pine
  • Spearmint
  • Spruce
  • Sweet Orange
  • Vanilla
  • Wintergreen
  • Juniper Berry

Use these essential oils for winter in your homemade blend recipes, especially in diffusers and roll on bottles.

Holiday Scented Cards & Pinecones

Add a dash of Christmas magic to your holiday cards and pinecones by scenting them with essential oils!

Scented Cards: Just add a few drops of your chosen winter essential oil or blend to a cotton pad. Place the cotton pad and a handful of cards in a ziplock bag. Let them sit for 24 hours. Don't let the cotton ball touch the cards directly (the oil can stain). Remove your cards after one day. Ready to endorse and send!

Pinecones: Add several drops of your favorite essential oil for winter onto a bowl of pinecones (like pine or cinnamon). Let the aroma natural evaporate. Re-scent the cones as needed. Want a bigger whiff, bring the bowl to your nose and gently inhale in.

Pre-Made Essential Oil Blends for Winter

I personally love to blend my oils to create custom essential oil blends, but I know that not everyone likes to. Most essential oil brands offer premade blends (aka synergistic blends). This is a great way to experience plant oils you may or may not be familiar with.

With these, you won’t have to make up your own essential oil mixes, definitely more convenient if you are new to using essential oil or just want to try something different!

  • Breathe by Doterra (contains Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Ravensara, and Cardamom)
  • Christmas Tree Blend by Plant Therapy (contains Fir and Black Spruce)
  • Holly Berries by Plant Therapy (contains Blood Orange, Douglas Fir, Eucalyptus Dives, and Patchouli oil)
  • Breathe Easier by Edens Garden (contains Lemon, Peppermint essential oil, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary)
  • Immunity by Edens Garden (contains Sweet Orange, Lemon, Rosemary, Tea tree oil, and Frankincense essential oil)
  • Thieves by Young Living (contains Clove bud oil, Lemon peel oil, Cinnamon bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary)
