Apple Cider Essential Oil Blend Recipes
The apple cider essential oil blend doesn’t actually use apples. There’s no apple essential oil.
Instead, the blend uses a combination of sweet and spicy scents, most commonly Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Sweet Orange, Ginger, Clove, and Star Anise. These scents are used in different combinations to create a variety of apple cider essential oil blends.

Apple Cider Essential Oil Blend Recipe 2
Add the drops to a clean, dry, dark-colored glass bottle. Close the cover tightly and swirl gently to let all the oils combine.
Cinnamon essential oil gives the blend that distinctive apple cider scent, while nutmeg and ginger add spicy notes to the blend, and orange gives it that fresh sweetness.
If you want a more fruity cider blend, add a few more drops of sweet orange essential oil.
If you prefer a spicier aroma, add extra drops of clove or cardamom essential oil.
Experiment by adding one drop of each scent at a time to an empty amber glass bottle until you are happy with the final result.
Just put a few drops in your diffuser and place it in any room of your home to instantly infuse your home with the holiday spirit.
Of course, you can also use it in various gifts as well. I’ve put together a few easy DIY apple cider-scented gift ideas for you.
