In winter, we bring trees into our homes and decorate them. We send cards with pictures of snowy forest landscapes. We welcome friends and family into our kitchen and share the tastes of homemade baking. Our 10 winter diffuser blends are a salute to the outdoors and the indoors.
We’ll start with blends that are woodsy and warm. Mellow and earthy. We’ll contrast that with diffuser blends that will fill your home with the sweet smell of delicious cookies, cakes, and pies. Have fun and try a new combination that will remind you of all you love about winter.
How can you know if a combination is going to smell great diffused?
You don’t have to start out by pouring them into your diffuser. Convince yourself that you are going to love this blend by giving it a sniff right out of the bottle. Open the bottles and hold them in your hands together. Then pass them about 6 inches under your nose and inhale smoothly and deeply. You’ll know if it’s the right blend for your mood. If that one didn’t strike your fancy, don’t give up. Just move to the next combination or sub out another essential oil. It’s all up to you. These are just a few ideas to get you started.
