Anyone who knows me knows that the holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year. I love everything about it, from the lights and music to the traditional meals (warm alcoholic beverages included!) and holiday parties. Of course, the scents of the season become a huge part of the memories we create while spending time with loved ones during this time of year. If you want to smell Christmas in a bottle anytime of year, get yourself some Christmas Spirit! It is the perfect combination of spruce, cinnamon, and orange, and whenever I diffuse it, my home instantly smells of Christmas morning! Everyone who walks in comments on how good it smells. And of course, it's my favorite blend to diffuse while decorating my home and preparing gifts for the holidays.
Additionally, this blend offers several therapeutic benefits, including:
Spruce: This oil helps you to feel grounded and balanced. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can help stimulate the immune system.
Cinnamon: Also anti-inflammatory, this oil is powerfully antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. (Cinnamon is one of the single oils that makes up the super-popular Thieves blend.)
Orange: This oil is relaxing, uplifting, and is often used to help with anxiety and insomnia.
So, as you can see, while diffusing essential oils can make your home smell wonderful and reminiscent of this joyous season, it also offers real therapeutic benefits. You can’t say that about your average Christmas candle!
If you want to experience this blend in person, be sure to pop into one of my aromatherapy yoga classes around the holidays! See you on the mat!
