Between the presents, parties, baking, family, and company – Christmas can get pretty stressful. Sometimes it’s good to just stop and take some time to remember what the season is all about.
One great way to do that is with a scent that reminds you of all those wonderful Christmas memories you had as a child. That’s exactly what I wanted to do with this aromatherapy blend.
Of course the first thing that comes to mind is cinnamon… but I wanted to make a blend that had some more interesting notes. I always bake with vanilla, and sandalwood seemed to be a good “grounding” note for this mix.
I encourage you to try this one!
Christmas Stress Relief Blend
- 12-15 Drops Sandalwood (Santalum Album) – distilled in India/Australia – this oil provides a base for the blend. It’s a very calming oil that soothes the central nervous system, quiets the mind, and provides a calm atmosphere.
- 10-12 Drops Vanilla (Vanilla Planifolia) – nothing is better that the rich, warm aroma of vanilla. This oil reminds us of all those wonderful Christmas cookies!
- 5-7 Drops – Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) – Cinnamon is a VERY strong oil, so you only need a few drops.I love to use cinnamon in diffuser blends because it is a great stress reliever! Use caution – this oil can burn your skin if it makes direct contact.
