Christmas Tree Aroma Diffuser Recipe
The smell of fresh cut Christmas trees is an aroma that brings happiness and fondness of Christmas to many.
This natural essential oil diffuser blend captures the beautiful holiday aroma of Fir and Spruce combined with the wonderful, complementary aromas of Cedarwood and Juniper. It is especially nice to use in rooms that don't have a fresh tree.
The below directions are for creating a diffuser blend, but it can also be used to help revive the aroma of fresh trees, wreaths and garlands. Simply sprinkle on a few drops, paying attention not to let the blend come into contact with furniture, Christmas lights or electrical cords. Remember that essential oil is flammable.
It is also a wonderful blend to use for the Scented Greeting Card & Tissue Paper recipe. It is also lovely in potpourri.
- 5 drops Fir Needle Oil
- 5 drops Spruce Oil
- 5 drops Cedarwood Oil (optional - to lighten the aroma a bit)
- 5 drops Juniper Oil (optional)
Add your oils to a 2 ml dark colored glass bottle and shake well. If you would like to make a larger quantity, multiply the recipe above and add to a larger bottle. Add the appropriate number of drops from your created blend to your diffuser by following the manufacturer's instructions. This recipe is not intended for topical use.
