Who doesn’t love the smell of Christmas?
The entire season is just wonderful – but it’s even better when you can boost your mood with a fabulous blend of essential oils.
Have you ever been to Hobby Lobby and stood in the entry doors smelling the scent? I used to do that ALL the time – and I come home and wonder what they have in there that smells so incredible.
It wasn’t until a few short years ago that I started using Essential Oils, and about a year later, discovered Christmas Spirit Essential Oil. I’m still not sure why I waited so long to try it – but threw it on my order one month and fell in love with it as soon as I opened the bottle.
Hands down, the best smell you will ever experience.
Your sense of smell is tied to the limbic system – which is the part of your brain that processes emotions and memories.
When you inhale aromas that trigger happy thoughts of your past, then your body is overwhelmed with hormones that make you feel good and experience a boost in mood.
What is Christmas Spirit Essential Oil?
Christmas Spirit is a sweet, spicy blend of orange, cinnamon and spruce essential oils – the oil is a mood booster that taps into the happiness, joy and security associated with the holiday season.
Orange Essential Oil is known as a happy mood booster – it’s great for supporting a healthy immune system. Cinnamon is also very supportive to the immune system – not to mention is perfect to diffuse all winter long. Then there is spruce – which is supportive to the respiratory system and helps you feel emotionally balanced.
Although it’s called “Christmas Spirit” it’s not limited to just Christmas. You can diffuse this one all year long 🙂
Here are some ways to use Christmas Spirit Essential Oil
Freshen your air vents – add a few drops to your air conditioning filters in your home to give a nice scent when guests come over.
As an air freshener – apply 8-10 drops of Christmas Spirit to a glass spray bottle top with distilled water and use as an air freshener as you spray the rooms.
Scent your laundry – add 4-5 drops to your Wool Dryer Balls to give your laundry a nice, holiday scent (especially your linens)
Luscious lips – use Christmas Spirit to make yourself holiday-scented lip care using this basic lip care recipe here (just substitute Christmas Spirit!)
Freshen your carpet – Add 10-15 drops to 1/2 – 1 C. of baking soda and store in a glass shaker (like THIS). Give it a good shake to mix well, and then sprinkle on your carpets 10-12 minutes before you vacuum.
Add 10 drops to your vacuum filter before vacuuming – the scent should last a few days before you need to reapply.
Scented bathroom – bathrooms don’t always smell too well, so we suggest putting a single drop in the inside of the toilet paper tube in your bathroom. Every time you “roll” the toilet paper (when you go) the scent of Christmas Spirit will grace your bathroom.
DIY Mason Jar Gel Air Freshener – this DIY Gel Air Freshener would be great with Christmas Spirit – and kept in a bathroom or a small space (perhaps even your desk in your office!)
Gifts for Teachers – my favorite gift to give my child’s school teacher is Christmas Spirit – the oil is limited to 2 per month, so I pick up 2 every month, and just before holiday break, I whip up a cute gift card for their teachers with some of these tips and recipes, and gift to them before the Holiday Break.
Car Freshener – add to this DIY Leather Car Freshener so you can capture the smell of Christmas as you run errands around town.
Diffuser Necklace Scent – this is the perfect diffuser necklace scent – wear it around the office, or around family to inspire them to love the scent of Christmas, too!
