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 and 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!

Winter Diffuser Blends

                    It is best not to apply undiluted essential oils onto the skin. When using essential oils topically on the skin, be sure to dilute with a carrier oil like jojoba oil or sweet almond oil.

                    Using essential oils can improve a person’s emotional, physical, and mental state. For best results, make sure you use pure essential oils and learn how to use them properly.

                    People can have different responses to essential oils, you may find what works for one person, doesn't work for you. You can learn more here about what to do when essential oils don't work.
