Scents of the Season: Four Scents to Diffuse During the Holidays

Our sense of smell is one of the strongest triggers for emotions and memory. Diffusing special fragrances into your home during the holidays is a special treat that invites a special experience that you can reminiscence about in the coming years.


Try diffusing Christmas Spirit or mimic the aroma of baked holiday treats wafting through the air with Thieves®  essential oil blend to bring back warm memories of holidays past.


The holidays are also a time to reflect on the reason for the season. Using the Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture Collection—which features some of the most precious and significant oils found in the Bible—can help set a fragrant ambiance ideal for meditation and relaxation. This kit includes Cassia and Onycha, which are only available as part of the kit, along with Aloes (Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood), Cedarwood, Cypress, Frankincense, Galbanum, Hyssop, Myrrh, Myrtle, Rose of Sharon (Cistus), and Spikenard essential oils.


These and other festive oils can help you create rich and spiritually uplifting aromas for your home this season. Here are four specially created blends that I use throughout the holidays for their unique and relaxing fragrances.


Northern Lights Black Spruce Essential Oil - Young Living
Light and Incense 

The slightly musky and woodsy aroma of this blend helps support feelings of spirituality and peace.


Myrrh - Young Living Essentail Oil December Reflection

The Sandalwood overtones of this rich blend create an uplifting and relaxing fragrance that deepens a sense of togetherness.


Idaho Balsam Fir - Young Living Essential Oil
Fresh Winter

This blend’s aroma is reminiscent of a crisp winter forest with a scent that helps support meditation and encourages feelings of creativity.


Cedarwood - Young Living Essential Oil
