Essential Oil Diffuser Blend Recipe for Gloomy Winters

More than a third of Americans, me including, love spring! What’s not to love? The glorious colors of the season, fresh blooming flowers, and of course, the mild sunny days. And though we can’t control the season, we can somehow cheat our way into smelling and feeling it. *wink*

Presenting Winter Sunshine Essential Oil Diffuser Blend, ta-da! We understand how the short, dark days and blustery cold temperatures of winter make our spirits low. So we specifically formulated an essential oil diffuser blend recipe that smells like winter with a hint of spring’s sunshine to energize and uplift your wistful feelings. 

Infused with Winter Spice Essential Oil Blend (a blend of Tangerine, Fir Needle, & Balsam Fir Essential Oils), Bergamot Essential Oil, and Cinnamon Essential Oil, which are all refreshing and rejuvenating oils, this blend will surely get rid of winter-onset blues. It’s HAPPY holidays, indeed!

Winter Spice Essential Oil Blend

Our special season blend, Winter Spice Essential Oil Blend, has an evergreen, slightly citrus aroma that is perfect for the winter season. Aside from its wonderful scent, it also helps counter the gloomy feelings and germs that come with winter.*

Bergamot Essential Oil

To add a hint of spring, we added Bergamot Essential Oil to the recipe. The warm, citrus, floral scent of Bergamot Oil will remind you of a bright spring day. Also, it adds both relaxing and uplifting effects to the mix.*

Cinnamon Essential Oil

Another uplifting oil we added is Cinnamon Essential Oil. Cinnamon Oil has a sweet, spicy, and warm scent that will wake your melancholy self. Like Winter Spice Blend, this oil will help combat seasonal illnesses too!*
