Make Easy Essential Oil Blends for the Holidays
#1: Diffuse a festive blend in the air. Use these in an electric diffuser, or simply in a bowl with boiled water poured on top.
NOTE: The amounts below make 1 use in the diffuser which will last 1-3 hours. To make a larger amount for multiple use or to make stocking stuffers, multiply the drops of oil by 10 or less. For example, 3 drops of Peppermint x 10 = 30 drops.

1d Nutmeg - or substitute Allspice
3d Green Mandarin (or any Orange oil)
1d Vanilla – if you’re doing this in a bowl with boiled water, you can substitute 1/8 tsp cooking vanilla for the essential oil.
3d Douglas Fir
Note this blend works best in a bowl with boiled water as the resin quality of Myrrh tends to clog an electric diffuser.
|Make stocking stuffers by getting some bulk quantity Sample Vials and filling them with your blend. Print a label on your computer, and wrap it around. Each vial will last for several uses of the blend.|
In a bowl, mix together:
1 cup coarse sea salt + a little extra if needed
1/2 cup carrier oil such as jojoba, liquid coconut, sweet almond, or a mixture of these
Optional if you have it: 1 Tsp Cucumber Seed Botanical Oil
10-20 drops total Essential Oils.
© For a tropical Thai aroma I use Lime, Massoia, Plai, Lawang, & Lemongrass
© For a luxurious romantic bath try Ginger Lily and Cardamom together
© To relax and get away from it all combine Rose Geranium, Lavender, & Bergamot
|There are all kinds of jars available in a variety of sizes that you can use to package up your Foot Spa Salt Scrub for the special people on your list. This makes a great gift for Massage Therapists to give to your regular clients too!|
|Spritzer Tops (aka Finger Misters) can be ordered to fit different bottle sizes. This one shown is a small size that fits a 1 or 2 oz glass bottle. Then use either plain water or a beautiful Aromatic Hydrosol as the base you add essential oils to.|
Use plain water or an Aromatic Hydrosol such as Spruce, Pine, or another type of Tree as the carrier base.
