The month leading up to Christmas can be hectic. So many of us would love to be able to slow down and enjoy the beauty this season has to offer, but try as we might it doesn't quite happen.
Adding essential oils into your daily routine won't add hours to your day but they just might help you recall memories of a simpler time or keep you focused so you can accomplish all those items on your to-do list.
What is one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of Christmas? The tree of course! Many of us choose to have an artificial tree, and there is nothing wrong with that, except the lovely smell of a real tree is missing. There's an oil for that!
Put some pine oil in a diffuser and transform the atmosphere of your home into those magical memories from years gone by. Not only does it smell wonderful and purify the air, but pine oil has so many healthy benefits as well.
We would be remiss if we didn't mention frankincense and myrrh, because of the religious ties to this time of year of course. Besides being worthy gifts for a king, the oils themselves have wonderful advantages.
They both have anti-bacterial and illness fighting qualities as well as stress reduction and relaxation benefits. And who doesn't need less stress this time of year?! Put a few drops of one of our aromatherapy jewelry pieces and ease your mood all day.
Another scent that is common during the Christmas season is cinnamon. It is in everything from coffee to cookies and there is a good reason for that. It is delicious! But in the form of an oil it can boost your energy levels and assist in focusing your mind on the many tasks you have to check off your list this time of year.
Cinnamon oil can also stimulate your immune system so you stay healthy. You can't do all that Christmas shopping if you don't feel well!
The last oil we think you should add to your wish list is clove. It has a soul warming smell that can be found in mulled wine or on your ham that is baking in the oven. Diffused through your home this time of year can relieve the affects that a cold has on your system.
There are so many wonderful oils that it really all comes down to personal preference when it comes to aroma and health benefits, but we think these five are worth giving a try this holiday season.
