It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air -William Thomas Ellis
What does Christmas Spirit mean to you? To me, it’s a feeling of joy and merriment. A season of surprise and delight. No matter your age, the spirit of Christmas is easy to find. The delightful smells of the season can easily bring back fond memories of past Christmases. The aroma of cinnamon, spruce, and citrus are a few of the many joys of Christmas time.
Christmas Spirit Essential Oil
Luckily, Young Living took all the best scents of the holiday season and put them into one bottle. Christmas Spirit essential oil blend is both familiar and timeless. The aroma is comforting and a tender reminder of simpler times. Memories made with family during the holidays are some of my most treasured. This essential oil is near and dear to my heart.
Christmas Spirit is a blend of orange, cinnamon bark, and black spruce essential oils. This oil is perfect to diffuse in your home all season long (I’m not embarrassed to say I diffuse it all year long). Mix it with tangerine to make a welcoming room spray for each room in your home. It can also be used in beauty products.
You don’t need artificial scents to recreate the smells of the Christmas season!
This lip balm recipe contains rich carrier oils like coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and beeswax. It will soothe chapped lips and lock in moisture, without irritating the delicate skin on your lips.
Orange essential oil has cleansing properties when used on the skin, while spruce can improve the appearance of dry skin. Although it is a spicy oil, Cinnamon Bark can be used on the skin so long as it is diluted properly with a carrier oil. Cinnamon Bark can stimulate the skin, improve circulation, and promote feelings of inspiration. This unique essential oil blend is perfect for alleviating the harsh effects of winter on the skin.
When my lips get chapped or dry I reach for one of our wonderful lip balm recipes. These Vanilla Bergamot lip balm tubes are perfect for when you’re on the go, and I use a Grapefruit Lip Scrub when I need some extra exfoliation. I love this Christmas Spirit lip balm recipe for everyday use, and during the holiday season!
With just a few natural ingredients, you can make a sweet homemade gift in minutes. Get this holiday lip balm recipe below:
Christmas Spirit Lip Balm
- 1 Tbsp solid coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp beeswax pellets (white or yellow)
- 2 teaspoons clear vanilla (optional)
- 1 Tbsp sweet almond oil (or substitute vitamin E oil)
- 8-10 drops Christmas Spirit Essential Oil
- 2 oz tin
- custom label (see below)
- In a double boiler, melt the beeswax. If you do not have a double boiler, place the beeswax in a glass mixing bowl that fits snuggly on top of a pot of water. Allow the water to come to a boil, and the beeswax to melt completely (you can also microwave the pellets for 30-90 seconds).
- Add the coconut oil and melt to combine. Use a silicone spatula to gently stir. Remove from heat. Add sweet almond oil and vanilla. Pour into a glass measuring cup with a lip for easy pouring.
- Add the Christmas Spirit essential oil. Stir well. Work quickly so the mixture does not begin to set. You can microwave it for 30 seconds if it hardens prematurely. Carefully pour the mixture into a 2 oz tin pot. Let cool until mixture returns to a solid.
- Add gift tag sticker and give as a sweet gift this Christmas!
Notes and Substitutions:
- This recipe yields one, two-oz lip balm. I used about 10 drops of oil for each tin, but you can adjust the number of drops to meet your preference.
- I added colorless vanilla to add a sweet flavor and an inviting scent. This Mexican Cold-Pressed Vanilla is perfect because it’s clear so it won’t change the color of the recipe. I use it in all my essential oil perfume recipes.
- You can substitute the coconut oil for shea butter. If you don’t have sweet almond oil, vitamin E oil is a good substitute and is similar in color.
- If you want to be extra festive, add a touch of red colorant to make a tinted lip balm.
