Frankincense & Fir Essential Oil Diffuser Blend
Around the holidays, my Frankincense & Fir Diffuser Blend fills my holiday 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 purchase your Frankincense Essential Oils (all species of frankincense) from suppliers that maintain responsible sourcing and sustainability practices.
- 2 Parts Fir Needle Essential Oil (also known as Silver Fir)
- 1 Part Grapefruit Essential Oil
Combine the essential oils in a bottle.
Add 1-3 drops from your created blend to your diffuser. Follow the diffuser 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.
