Frankincense & Fir Christmas Essential Oil Diffuser Blend
Around the holidays, my Frankincense & Fir blend fills my space with a light, uplifting and energizing aroma that does not directly compete with other Christmastime aromas from the tree, baking and so on.
- 2 Parts Frankincense Essential Oil [Update Since Publishing This Recipe Many Years Ago: The Frankincense species Boswellia sacra is designated as near threatened according to the Red List of Threatened Species database published by The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. Whenever possible, please strive to use Frankincense Essential Oils that are steam distilled from other species that are sustinably sourced and not threatened/endangered.
- 2 Parts Fir Needle Essential Oil
- 1 Part Grapefruit Essential Oil
Combine the essential oils in a bottle and use in your diffuser. If you're new to diffusion, read AromaWeb's Essential Oil Diffusers article.
Or use AromaWeb's Air Freshener Recipe to create a beautiful room mist.
Add the appropriate number of drops from your created blend to your diffuser by following the manufacturers instructions. This recipe is not intended for topical use.
Although this blend can certainly be used for the sole purpose of imparting a lovely, seasonal aroma into the room, I prefer to use it more mindfully when I need a spiritual and energetic boost.
