Apple Cider Essential Oil Blend Recipes
The apple cider essential oil blend doesn’t actually use apple, as there is no ‘apple’ essential oil. Instead, the blend uses other scents that when combined give off the aroma that reminds you of this type of spiced cider, which is popular during the fall or winter holidays.
The scents you want to start with are ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange. These four scents can be used in different combinations to create two different apple cider essential Oil blends.

Apple Cider Essential Oil Blend Recipe 2
3 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
3 drops Ginger Essential Oil
2 drops Sweet Orange Essential Oil
All of these essential oils used in the apple cider blends are hugely popular during the Holidays and are used to create several different seasonal blends. They are also used in several DIY Christmas gifts.
The cinnamon oil gives the blend that distinctive apple cider scent, while the nutmeg and ginger gives it a hint of spice, and the orange gives it that fresh sweetness.
If you want more of a fruity cider blend, add a little more orange oil.
If you are looking for more of a spiced cider essential oil blend, add in a drop 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.

The great thing about candles is that they are easy to make and it’s something everyone is sure to use. Apple-cider scented candles can be placed in the kitchen, dining room, study, bathroom, and even in the office.
Start with a candle-making kit if this is your first attempt at making your own candles.
