Snuggling up by a cozy fire, making homemade marshmallows, trimming the tree . . . there are just so many reasons to love this time of year. With that in mind, here are some essential oil diffuser blends to make the season even more merry and bright.

They’re inspired by crackling fires, warm gingerbread, evergreen forests, spiced cider, sugar cookies, peppermint lattes and more.⁣

I based the number of drops on the diffuser I use and the size of my room. If you have a very large room, you may want to increase the number of drops.

All the recipes are kid-safe except the ones that incorporate peppermint, which is not recommended for children under six. I put a little note next to those recipes to remind you – enjoy! 🙂

Want Pre-Made Blends Instead?

Spiced Cider

Tip: If you love this recipe and your kids are over five, you can create a delightful variation by replacing the ginger with star anise essential oil. It smells amazing.
