10 Christmas Diffuser Blends That Will Warm Up Your Home This Winter

With the holidays upon us, nothing beats filling your home with the scents of the season like evergreens, peppermint, gingerbread cookies and spiced cider.

Even if you can’t have the real thing, simply adding a few drops of essential oils to your diffuser will do the trick.

If you don’t already have one, be sure to read our review of five of the best to help you find your perfect diffuser. (If you can’t be bothered to read our reviews, then this is the best.)

Ready Made Christmas Essential Oil Blends

This article details ten of the best homemade essential oil mixes that create beautiful holiday aromas.

If you are an essential oil enthusiast then you probably have a lot of the oils already meaning they are cheap and easy to blend, but if you are just getting started, buying all of the individual oils can be expensive.

10 Christmas Essential Oil Blends That Will Warm Up Your Home This Winter

If that is the case, you could instead opt for a ready-made Christmas essential oil blend. These are pre-mixed blends of 100% pure essential oils.

These “Cozy For Christmas” Holiday Blends Sets from Plant Therapy Essential Oils are the perfect solution.

They have two sets: Winter Playland which includes Frosted Mint, Christmas Tree & Holly Berries; and Holiday Treats which includes Apple Pie, Candy Cane & Spiced Cider.

You can get more details and purchase both sets, one set or each individual bottled blend from this page on the official Plant Therapy website.

10 Homemade Holiday Essential Oil Blends

The following are 10 of our favorite homemade Christmas essential oil diffuser blends that will warm up your home this winter!

Spice Blends

The warm, spicy aromas of Cloves, Cassia and Cinnamon dominate the following five blends.

Keep in mind that once you use these potent base notes in your diffuser, it may take some time (and / or vigorous cleaning) for the scent to wear off.

Also, be sure that your specific model is rated to stand up to citrus oils before diffusing any of blends containing Sweet Orange. The manufacturer instructions which came with your diffuser should have this information.

1. Warm & Cozy

Sweet orange, cardamom, clove and cinnamon

This blend reminds me of drinking warm spiced Chai with a pinch of orange zest grated over the top.

Despite being a potent top note, the Sweet Orange is surprisingly understated in this blend – taking a backseat to the Cardamom and behaving more like a middle.

3 drops Cardamom

1 drop Sweet Orange

1 drop Clove

1 (more) drop Sweet Orange

2. Spiced Cider

Without having access to an apple-scented essential oil, making a blend that smelled like spiced cider was challenging. However, this one does the trick.

The hint of Sweet Orange is just enough fruit to present the olfactory illusion of apples without making the blend smell too citrusy.

1 drops Sweet Orange

2 drops Cinnamon Bark

3 drops Ginger

3. Gingerbread Cookie

Ginger oil

If you don’t have Allspice and are feeling adventurous, try using 1 drop of Black Pepper instead. This gives the blend a more traditional spicy gingerbread aroma.

You can also substitute Nutmeg in place of Allspice to give the blend a sweeter, more mellow fragrance.

1 drop Cassia

3 drops Ginger

1 drop Clove

1 drop Allspice

4. Candy Cane

Candy Cane is a sugary sweet treat for your nose. If you don’t have Cassia, you can substitute Cinnamon bark instead. However, Cassia gives the blend a more candy-like aroma.

1 drop Spearmint

1 drop Cassia

3 drops Peppermint

5. Holiday Cheer

It is worth noting that the first time I mixed Holiday Cheer, I used only one drop of Ginger as the second ingredient, then added a second drop at the end because it seemed like it needed it.

The second time, I added both drops of Ginger together and the blend didn’t smell the same. You may want to experiment with this to see if the scent changes for you as well and which one you prefer.

2 drop Sweet Orange

2 drops Ginger

1 drop Cinnamon Bark

1 drop Pine

Non-Spice Blends

For those of you who love the holiday season, but have had your fill of cinnamon-saturated department store and supermarket air – this section is just for you.

Here are five of my favorite winter blends which contain absolutely no cinnamon or cinnamon-like oils.

6. Long Winter’s Night

Fir needles, pinecones, oil and diffuser

The Fir Needle in this blend gives off a pleasant piney aroma and Cedarwood adds an earthy undertone, but neither is overpowering.

The Frankincense and Rosemary also harmonize quite nicely with the other two oils, making this a crisp and refreshing blend that creates a pleasant background aroma for entertaining guests.

2 drops Fir Needle

1 drop Cedarwood

1 – 2 drops Frankincense

1 drop Rosemary

7. Away In A Manger

This blend of sweet, citrus and earthy aromas is a Christmas tribute to Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar – the Three Magi who brought gifts to Jesus at the time of his birth. Give it a try. We’re sure you’ll adore it!

2 drops Sweet Orange

2 drops Frankincense

2 drops Myrrh

8. Frosty Boughs

Peppermint and peppermint oil

This combination of evergreen and mint oils is energizing and refreshing. For a more minty aroma, add only 1 drop of Fir Needle instead of two.

If you prefer the scent of pine, try using 1 drop of Spearmint and 2 drops of Fir Needle. Frosty Boughs works well in any of these combinations!

1 drop Peppermint

2 drops Spearmint

1 drop Cedarwood

2 drop Fir Needle

9. Christmas Tree

This blend was the happy result of reaching for the Cedarwood and accidentally picking up Patchouli instead.

More earthy and less woody, Patchouli actually makes Christmas Tree smell more like a real evergreen forest than it did when using Cedarwood as the base.

2 – 3 drops Fir Needle

1 drop Patchouli

2 – 3 drops Pine

Depending on the strength of your Patchouli, you may want to add more Fir Needle and Pine to balance out the blend.

10. Solstice Sunrise

Named for it’s energizing properties and for the colors of the fruits from which the included oils are distilled, this blend fills the room with a clean and refreshing aroma!

1 drop Lemon

1 drop Sweet Orange

1 drop Grapefruit

2 drops Frankincense

2 drops Spearmint
