The holiday season is the most wonderful time of year! However, this season can often become stressful between hosting guests, buying the perfect gifts, and remaining healthy. A great way to overcome these seasonal challenges is by using essential oils. Here are a few different ways to use essential oils to prepare for the holiday season ahead.
Prepare Your Home:
Elevate your space at home this holiday season by diffusing essential oils. Whether you are hosting guests or opening gifts on Christmas Morning, there is a perfect essential oil for your needs.
1. Hosting Company
Are you expecting guests to stay at your home this holiday season? If they struggle with sleeping, offer to diffuse a blend like Shut-eye in their room for a good night's rest.
2. Diffuse at Events
Diffusing oils at events is a great way to create an uplifting atmosphere since scent is often connected with memory. Using aromatherapy can also help you ease anxiety as you prepare for your guest's arrival or while you are preparing food in the kitchen.
If you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner, try using a scent like Harvest Home. Expertly blended by Dr. P. is this warm and inviting aroma consisting of sweet and spicy citrus, clove, and anise essential oil. Check out our Harvest Home Bundle, which includes a Zen aromatherapy oil warmer candle everything you need to create a wonderful atmosphere this Thanksgiving. A few other great options are Pumpkin Pie and Spiced Apple Cider essential oils.
3. DIY Home Products
