The delicious aroma of Christmas cookies… heady scent of peppermint candy cane… uplifting aroma of a freshly cut Christmas tree… fresh-out-of-the-oven gingerbread cookies…warm mulled wine… the sweet n’ spicy scent of orange pomanders… are just a few of my favorite scents of the season.
One way to infuse your home with these traditional seasonal scents is by adding Christmas essential oil blends to your diffuser during the Holidays.
You will find lots of wonderful Christmas essential oil blend recipes on my site but this compilation is a little different. Here you’ll find recipes to recreate some of the more ‘traditional’ Christmas scents using blends of various essential oils.
This collection is inspired by Christmas traditions old and new, some of which have been long forgotten. Remember Wassailing, an ancient Anglo-Saxon tradition? We may not want to go Wassailing anymore but it may be worth trying out the drink associated with it.
Adding a few drops of these traditional Christmas essential oil blends in your diffuser is sure to keep that festive mood going through the Holiday season.
Traditional Wassail Holiday Diffuser Blend
Let’s dive into this list of traditional Christmas essential oil blends with the most traditional of them all – the Wassail Blend.
Wassail is an ancient traditional drink made with roasted apples, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, sugar, and eggs, topped with whipped cream. As you can imagine, it had a heady aroma. The combination of essential oils used in the Wassail Blend recreates that heady aroma, distinctive of this traditional drink.
I haven’t tried the drink but I’ve tried creating this blend. It is sweet, spicy, and fruity all at once – out of this world!
I wouldn’t substitute any of the oils or change their proportions. I love it just the way it is!

Christmas Tree Essential Oil Blends
What’s Christmas without a Christmas Tree, right? And that refreshing pine smell of a live tree makes you feel warm and cozy all over.
But what if you don’t have the space or the resources for the real thing?
Diffusing essential oil blends that smell like a Christmas Tree is a great way to recreate the scents of a live tree.
Check out these recipes for an assortment of Essential Oil Blends That Smell Like A Christmas Tree. You’ll find easy recipes for making a Traditional Christmas Tree Blend, White Fir Blend, Winter Woods Diffuser Blend, and Forest Boughs Christmas Tree Blend.
I’ve tried all versions of the Christmas Tree blends and my biggest problem is deciding which is my favorite.
Gifts of the Magi Diffuser Blend
Diffusing the Gifts Of The Magi Blend in your diffuser will remind you of the original story of the 3 wise men and their gifts of frankincense, myrrh, and gold.
The wild orange in the recipe represents the gold given to baby Jesus.
If you find the aroma a little too strong for you, you may want to add that drop of fir needle oil. The fir needle scent adds a hint of freshness to the blend.
If you are planning on making the Gifts of the Magi blend, you can save by picking up this combo pack of frankincense and myrrh instead of buying each bottle separately.
Egg Nog Diffuser Blend
The Eggnog Blend contains just two oils – vanilla bean and nutmeg. One is decadent and sweet, the other has a distinctive aroma that is part sweet, part spicy.
The combination of these two strong scents creates a very distinctive aroma that is almost similar to eggnog.
