My list of the 10 best Christmas diffuser recipes for men
1 – Candy CaneI have started with this one as in my experience, these little sugary treasures of minty goodness are usually the first sign that all things Christmas are about to descend upon us. Mix 3 drops Peppermint 2 drops Stressaway Result Yep, smells like a candy cane! Note: StressAway Essential Oil Blend can be substituted for the Vanilla Essence for a more calming aroma.
2 – Merry Merry
3 – Gingerbread HouseAfter all, it’s not Christmas without Gingerbread… Mix
4 – Spiced CiderI know I have used this one before, but it is a Christmas list after all… Add some Nutmeg if you would prefer and we can call it Eggnog! Mix 5 drops Ginger 4 drops Orange 1 drop Cinnamon Bark Result Ginger is also very beneficial as a calming agent – perfect for when all of those fantastic, wonderful and carefree family members arrive to eat you out of house and home.
5 – Stuffed RoastOk, now I just getting lazy – another repeat from our manly list. However, it is a time when ovens all over the world are filled with a plethora of baked meaty goodness (and maybe a few vegetables for good measure). So I also stand by this one as being a worthy participant in our Christmas list – a manly participant at that! Mix 6 drops Rosemary 4 drops Sage 2 drops Thyme 1 drop Black Pepper Result I still reckon you can smell the chicken – or turkey – in this one too. If you live in the southern hemisphere where it is just too hot to be bothered with a big baked dinner for Chrissy lunch, then put this on to make that warm lettuce and soggy tomato taste just a little better…
6 – Pumpkin PieSpeaks for itself I think. Mix 4 drops Cardamom 2 drops Cinnamon Bark 2 drops Clove 1 drop Nutmeg Result Yep, good one – if not a little strong. This one might work really well with a little lime added just to break up the heaviness of the Clove and Cinnamon!
7 – Christmas CakeIt’s not Christmas without Christmas Cake (or pudding)… Mix 3 drops Thieves from Young Living 2 drops Grapefruit Result Now, I am personally not a huge fan of Thieves running solo in the diffuser, but add a bit of Grapefruit and it suddenly smells just like nana’s kitchen. You could also play with a little Orange, Cinnamon or Nutmeg here if you were feeling really nostalgic.
8 Christmas Tree
9 – Winter Fire
10 – Summer GardenAnd for those of you in the southern hemisphere where those lovely Christmas carols are overrun by the sound of crickets in the trees and you could launch a boat in the amount of sweat rolling off your body, grab a cold drink and load this one into the diffuser. Mix 2 drops Basil 3 drops Bergamot 2 drops Orange Result A fresh cooling aroma that will fill the house with a smell reminding you of those late summer evenings on the back porch as you dreamed of the presents good old Santa was about to deposit under that awesomely decorated plastic tree!
