Love that fresh, invigorating aroma of a real Christmas tree? While it may be impractical to keep a real tree in every room, you can still recreate that distinctive scent with these essential oil blends that smell of a Christmas tree.
Traditional Christmas Essential Oil Blends fill your home with classic Christmas scents. And there are Fruity Christmas blends that also recreate classic Christmas scents but these include the fruity side of things.
Here are a few recipes for you to get started making your own customized variation of fruity Christmas blends:
Cranberry Citrus Diffuser Blend
Both cranberries and citrus fruits are hugely popular during the Holiday season. Combine both of these aromas and what you get is a delicious, classic blend!
The grapefruit oil lends a refreshing aroma to the Cranberry Citrus Diffuser blend while the sweet orange injects it with a refreshingly sweet scent. Together, these two citrus fruits create an aroma that is similar to cranberries and oranges.
The cinnamon adds that seasonal sweetness to the blend and the nutmeg adds a touch of spice so that the blend is not overly sweet. Nutmeg has a strong aroma that can overpower the other scents so if you decide to add more, do so one drop at a time.
You could create a simple Cranberry Orange blend by adding only the sweet orange and omitting the Grapefruit oil. This smells great on its own too but it won’t have the complexity of its Cranberry Citrus counterpart.
Christmas Cider Diffuser Blend
The Christmas Cider blend smells just like cider. Put a few drops of this blend in your diffuser to fill your home smell with the heady fruity aroma of seasonal cider.
There are quite a few variations of this blend, but it typically starts with sweet orange essential oil to which you add your choice of spicy oils. Nutmeg and cinnamon are classic spicy scents that go into creating this Christmas Cider Blend.
Add a drop of clove essential oil to the original recipe if you want a spicier aroma. Clove has a very strong aroma though so only add one drop at a time or it will overpower the scents of the other oils.
Ginger is another essential oil you can add to customize this blend. Again, add just one stop, and then add more if you think you need more.
Orange Pomander Holiday Blend
Why not try a fun blend with orange and some spices? This is a wonderful fruity Christmas blend that provides the perfect combination of sweet, citrus fruit and holiday spices.
Sweet orange and clove are the classic components of a Christmas orange pomander and this blend smells exactly like the real thing. Rosemary adds a subtle herbaceous note that lifts the blend and gives it a little more complexity.
Fruity Candies Diffuser Blend
The fruity candies blend smells similar to candy canes and other fruity candies you have at Christmastime.
Citrus fruits are popular during the holiday season, but unlike other blends that use sweet orange, this uses lemon to give the blend a slightly sharper scent.
Peppermint balances out the citrus flavor and lavender add sweet floral notes to the blend – a wonderful combination.
Orange Spice Holiday Diffuser Blend
This blend combines orange with cinnamon and black pepper – two spices that are commonly used to flavor Holiday dishes. The result is an interesting sweet ‘n spicy aroma.
