Winter Essential Oil Scents

Essential oils are my jam.  I love a good blend, especially a good winter essential oils blend. There is something about Peppermint, Spruce, Fir, Eucalyptus that puts me in a cheerful mood. Everyone knows a cheerful mood makes dealing with crowded malls packed full of shoppers just a little bit more manageable. As well as, cheerful moods make cold winter days just that much more bearable.

Over the past couple months, I have collected oils from a few different brands while trying to figure out which brand was the best for me.  I did this by contacting local distributors of oil companies- thankfully the majority of them are in the form of a pyramid scheme so it’s easy to track down distributors to get some samples or just singular bottles. Some I did have to be bought online.  (YoungLiving, DoTerra I grabbed from some local distributors & ArtNaturals I bought online- they are still my fave oil company)

There seemed to be a lot of success and sharing of the Fall Blends post I wrote about my fave oils to diffuse in the Fall ( see that post here) So I thought why not do the same for winter?! So here we are. Without more rambles here’s the list:

Snow Day

2 drops Eucalyptus
2 drops Peppermint
2 drops Orange

Candy Cane

3 drops Lavender
2 drops Orange
1 drop Thieves
2 drops Cedarwood

Woods

4 drops Cedarwood
4 drops Pine
3 drops Spruce

Christmas Morning

5 drops Spruce
3 drops Orange
2 drops Peppermint
1 drops Frankincense

Winter Evening

3 drops Balsam Fir
2 drops Frankincense
1 drop Grapefruit

Wonderland

4 drops Peppermint
3 drops Bergamot
2 drops Cypress

If you are looking for a good diffuser there are TONS out there. I currently use one from ArtNaturals which can be found –> HERE. It is a small one that has a timer and lights up. This one is perfect for my bedroom as it does a great job at spreading the scent all around. For our rumpus room, we use a larger one that can be found –> HERE.

Hopefully, this list helps some people make their homes smell like holiday cheer

Fall Essential Oils to Blend

October 1st. Day One: Fall Essential Oils to Blend.

For the past year-ish I have been doing major research on essential oils. I’ve heard about them on and off my whole life but never really thought much about them. Until my anxiety and sleeping pattern was all messed up. About a year ago a while I was perusing my Instagram search page for wellness remedies I stumbled on this incredible womans page. I crept her page hard ( no shame in my game) I found out she is one of the most inspirational women on the face of this Earth ( like honestly go creep her, check out her blog, this woman is flippin INCREDIBLE! @madisonviningblog) Anywho, this incredible human is a part of Young Living and it seems to have changed her life- ok not seemed to it has. Before you roll your eyes at me this isn’t a post about how I joined a company and am now looking for people to buy them from me or to join my team ( although I have NOTHING against people who are in that kind of business). 

 So, about a month ago I got my first diffuser, a variety of essential oils, and oil rollerballs from a company called ArtNaturals. I also picked up some random oils off a Young Living rep when I was researching- this is why some of the recipes have different oils. I decided to go with ArtNaturals for 5 major reasons:
1. They have VERY good morals
2. They are cruelty-free, BPA free, and eco-friendly
3. They are VERY affordable
4. They offer a great range of products
5. They are very helpful with any inquiries you may have.

As I said earlier I had done my research. I know what oils to use, when to use them, and how to use them… what I am trying to say is I scoured the internet *cough* *cough* Pinterest *couch*couch* and acquired a list of recipes for EVERYTHING- like: pain relief, illness relief, relaxation, motivation, anxiety, trouble sleeping etc. you name it I have a recipe for it.  

Since this is the beginning of my Blog a day October, I thought I would give a list of Fall Themed Essential Oil Blends. If you have any questions about recipes, oils, or anything at all leave a comment or message me on Instagram @thediaryofabrokegirl
Enjoy
