Cold crisp air, cozying up fireside, twinkle lights everywhere and holiday tunes filling the air! This time of year brings with it all the nostalgic, comforting smells. I’ve put together a quick list of Winter oils to add to your collection. These are so good in the diffuser and almost any combo will be amazing. They also build seamlessly upon the oils we used so much during the Fall and will fill your home with festive, delicious smells!
YOUR FAVORITE SCARF MAKES A LOVELY DIFFUSER FOR ANY OF THESE OILS OR COMBINATIONS.
ADD A FEW DROPS OF PINE OR LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL TO YOUR TREE WATER TO KEEP IT FRESH LONGER.
USE A DROP OR TWO OF THE VITALITY OILS IN PLACE OF DRIED HERBS OR SPICES IN YOUR FAVORITE RECIPES (PIES, SOUPS, MULLED CIDER, ETC.). THE DIFFERENCE IN FLAVOR IS DRASTIC!
MOST OF THESE OILS ARE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM AND CAN BE SUPPORTIVE OF STAYING ABOVE THE WELLNESS LINE THIS SEASON.
ESSENTIAL WINTER COLLECTIONS
- Christmas Spirit
- Cinnamon Bark
- Northern Lights Black Spruce
- Idaho Blue Spruce
- Idaho Balsam Fir
- Stress Away
ESSENTIAL WINTER COLLECTION ADD-ONS*
- Cassia (a sweeter, milder cinnamon sent only found in the Oils of Ancient Scripture Collection)
- Exodus ii (Similar to Thieves, but with a twist!)
- Treasure of the Season
- The Gift
- Three WIsemen
- Cypress (another fun tree scent to throw in the mix!)
- Wintergreen (Try subbing this for Peppermint in some blends for more variety)
Consider adding your favorite floral or citrus oils to the spicy and evergreen aromas of winter for an unexpected and beautiful smell.
*These smell particularly amazing alongside the “fall” oils in the diffuser and will add complexity to the blends you create.
WINTER DIFFUSER BLENDS
These blends are great for the diffuser, but are also great for making linen sprays, room sprays, or even roll-on scents.
There are endless combos and smells you can come up with using these oils. Try mixing them with oils you already have in your collection, too! If a blend calls for a tree scent or cinnamony oil you don’t have, sub for one that you do. Play around and have fun! There is NO wrong combo!

Emotionally this one is known to cleanse the mind & provide feelings of courage & hope.
➕Joy (5ml): One of Gary’s Great Day Protocol oils 🙌. This oil is a powerhouse when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or if you have a pre-teen / teen going through some big emotions linked to hormonal changes. This one we love to diffuse to literally change the emotional atmosphere in the room. It is known as an oil that helps connect mind/body/ and soul and can pull us out of grief. It is a big heart opening oil and often the holidays can stir up a lot of emotions for people.
➕Pine (15 ml): 🌲Hello Christmas Trees! This plus some Christmas spirit from last month’s promos on the diffuser sticks in your YL branded Christmas ornament or your diffuser – SWOON!!! Your joints and muscles will also love being rubbed with some Pine. If you struggle with being a little stressed and tense around the holidays, this is the grounding oil you need. It revitalizes the mind, body, and spirit.

In Dr. Mein’s book, this blend is recommended for feelings of: Disharmony, greed, loneliness, rejection, shame, weakness & feeling others emotions too deeply. It’s also a very protective oil, an oil that keeps people’s negative energy away from you. Important for anyone who does body work or has a job where people talk to them about their problems 🤣😬😳 like your hair dresser, teachers …. they gonna need this by the gallon. It’s also a known tantrum tamer oil. Often our little ones experience BIG emotions and need some help with processing them. This oil is a great tool to have in your tool box.

Annnndddd finally…my FAVORITE OIL….
✨Frankincense 15 ml: Free Frank?! What? Yes you read that right. Um go look at the price of this oil in your virtual office. When Frankincense, the 15 ml size is free you get Frank for free (you might even get it twice!) HUGE immune system support oil. Like the powerhouse. This is also an incredible oil for your brain. Frankincense activates the part of your brain that does logical thinking versus emotional thinking. The pineal gland in your brain loves it some frankincense so this happens to be a fantastic oil for supporting your hormones since the production of your hormones start in the brain. The pineal gland produces melatonin and serotonin. No wonder why frank is also GREAT for sleep!!! One of the oils brought to The Christ child, this is a gorgeous oil to celebrate Christmas with as well.
❤️ What oils are you most excited about?!! — feeling grateful.
