Diffusing essential oils is a really fun way to bring the natural aromas of your favorite holiday treats, outdoorsy scenes, and cozy winter cheer into your home for the holidays.  And I feel certain that you will find at least one and probably more of these Diffuser Blends for Christmas that you will fall in love with.

It’s tempting to buy scented candles this time of year, but let’s face it, they’re overly expensive and often filled with toxic synthetic fragrances.  But, diffusing pure high quality essential oils allows you to experience full bodied seasonal scents without harmful ingredients.

Winter is one of my favorite seasons because you get to make some really nostalgic diffuser blends. I hope these simple recipes inspire you to create your own fun recipes to diffuse throughout your home!

Choosing Your Diffuser

First things first… the diffuser! There are many different diffusers ranging from elegant, to modern, to simple… and then to really fancy. I have several different ones, but the one I recommend is the NOW Ultrasonic Dual Mist Essential Oil Diffuser. It’s less than $30 and will run for 8 hours continuous and 16 hours intermittent. You can buy it here.

I have 3… one for the bedroom and 2 for downstairs.

Note: I’ve always been told to only use distilled water in your diffuser, even if the instructions say you can use tap water. The instructions for the NOW Diffuser says to only use tap water and NOT to use distilled water. Supposedly, tap water will clog the diffuser.  However, I’ve been running mine with lukewarm tap water for over a year with no problem.

The theory is that distilled water is completely free of minerals and is perfect for diffusing essential oils.  And, if you’re going to invest in a good diffuser you want it to last as long as possible. So, buying a gallon of distilled water at the grocery store is really cheap AND you won’t be diffusing yucky tap water into the air.  But, you decide whether to use distilled or tap water.

Diffuser Blends for Christmas

Here are a few fun blends that will entice your senses and make your family and friends wonder why your house smells so amazing!  And, by all means, feel free to experiment and get inspired to make your own season blends.

NOTE: ALWAYS fill the diffuser to the water line marked on it, THEN add the essentials oils.

Sparkling Candy Cane

This blend is wonderfully sweet (though not overly so) and very reminiscent of Christmas candy canes because of the peppermint essential oil. The vanilla gives it a subtle warmth and sweetness that really brings it together.

  • 8 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 2 drops vanilla essential oil

Mulled Cider

Mulled Cider is a great blend to diffuse while snuggled up near the fire with a good book and a hot mug of cider. The citrusy smell makes this blend bright and inviting for any holiday occasion.

  • 4 drops orange essential oil
  • 2 drops nutmeg essential oil
  • 1 drop cinnamon bark essential oil  (not cinnamon leaf… which smells different)
  • 1 drop of clove essential oil

Snickerdoodle Cookie

The smell of freshly baked cookies is intoxicating and what’s great about this recipe is you don’t have to be baking in order to enjoy it for endless hours. This blend seriously smells JUST like snickerdoodle cookies and is one of my favorite diffuser blends for Christmas right now.

  • 5 drops orange essential oil
  • 2 drops cinnamon bark essential oil
  • 1 drop clove essential oil

Winter Wonderland

Who doesn’t want to be reminded of silent walks through snow surrounded by evergreens. If you love the smell of pine, then this is a perfect blend to diffuse. (My husband LOVES this blend… he says it reminds him of  being out in the woods.)
