15 Christmas Essential Oils To Use This Holiday Season!

Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday!

I love going as a family to pick out a Christmas tree, baking yummy Christmas goodies (like my Healthier Peanut Butter Buckeyes:), and of course going Christmas shopping!

But do you know what my favorite part about the Christmas season is?

It’s sitting down at night after the kids have gone to bed with all of the lights off except the Christmas tree and the fireplace. And in my hand is a plate of yummy Christmas treats and a cup of Cafe Con Leche made with goat milk!

Aww, I wish I was sitting there right now:)

And do you know what can make that wonderful, peaceful time even better?!

The amazing scent of Christmas essential oils!

Christmas Scents

Which brings us to today’s post: 15 Essential Oils To Use This Christmas!

I am so excited to share with you the 15 essential oils that, I feel, are a must for the holiday season!

After writing about the 10 Essential Oils To Use This Fall, I decided that we NEEDED a post on the best oils for Christmas as well!

Christmas Smells!

1. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil


Mmmh, cinnamon!

The scent of cinnamon will make your home smell Christmasy (is that a word?:).

Cinnamon bark is a stronger cinnamon than cinnamon leaf essential oil.

It is the hotter oil of the two with, I think, a stronger, sweeter aroma.

Cinnamon bark smells warm and inviting making it a wonderful essential oil to use before having guests over!

2. Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil

Cinnamon Leaf

You might be wondering why I have two cinnamon essential oils on the list!

But they are both two different oils.

As I stated above, cinnamon leaf oil is not as hot as cinnamon bark.

Also, the smell of the cinnamon leaf is, in my opinion, more delicate.

It’s scent is probably closer to the ground cinnamon that you have in your kitchen.

It has a warm, pleasantly spicy smell that is heavenly!

3. Frankincense Essential Oil


Frankincense is my all time favorite essential oil!

The fragrance of this amazing oil is somewhat sweet.

It has a fresh woody scent and is very rich and intense, containing hints of spice and fruit.

If you haven’t smelled Frankincense before you definitely need to give it a try! You will love it!

If you would like to learn more about frankincense essential oil, such as uses, history facts (including the biblical accounts of frankincense) etc. Then check out My Frankincense Essential Oil Post!

4. Myrrh Essential Oil


Myrrh is a dark colored oil with an amber hue.

It has a clean warm scent with a hint of spice.

It pairs beautifully with Frankincense essential oil!

You can learn all about the details of Myrrh in My Myrrh Essential Oil Post!

5. Ginger Essential Oil


If you have used Ginger in food recipes then you know how wonderful it smells!

Ginger has a spicy, warm, yet sweet aroma.

Diffusing Ginger will make your home smell like you have a fresh batch of gingerbread men cooling in your kitchen!

It is very stimulating and warming to the emotions as well:)

6. Orange Essential Oil


When you combine the sweet, fresh scent of orange with the intense warm oils on this list, it smells amazing!

All citrus oils go well with the warm oils of cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg. As well as the green, forest like scents of the pine oils.

Orange is such a happy uplifting scent.

When you combine orange essential oil with the other oils on this list, your home will be an oasis of happy, warm thoughts that everyone in your family will benefit from!

7. Vanilla Essential Oil


We are all familiar with the strong, rich, smooth scent of vanilla!

This wonderful scent, as I’m sure you can imagine, goes very well with the other oils on this list!

8. Spruce Essential Oil



Spruce is a wonderful way to make your home smell like Christmas trees!

if you have an artificial tree this is a great way to get that Christmas tree smell!

Or if you want a more intense Christmas tree scent than you are getting from your real tree, then just diffuse some spruce!

9. Pine Needle Essential Oil

Pine Needle

This is another great woodsy scent to use at Christmas!

This scent combines so well with the other oils on this list.

Together they create a smell that can only be described as Christmas morning!

Christmas Tree Scent

10. Balsam Fir Essential Oil

Balsam Fir

Balsam Fir is the ultimate Christmas tree smell!

Imagine how amazing it would smell if you combined these tree scents together!

You would feel like you were on a Christmas tree farm!

11. Peppermint Essential Oil

While peppermint is an essential oil that I’m sure we all use year around, it is an excellent Christmas oil!

Use peppermint essential oil to bring back memories of eating candy canes as a child!

And combine it with the other oils listed here for a wonderful Christmas aroma!

12. Clove Bud Essential Oil

clove Buds

Clove Bud essential oil has a very warm, rich, spicy scent that blends well with the other oils on this list.

Using clove bud essential oil in your home will have a greatly relaxing effect, helping to erase the stress of your day and to put you in the Christmas spirit!

Red Mandarin Essential Oil

Red Mandarin has a sweet, fruity, uplifting scent.

It not only smells wonderful when combined with every oil on this list, but it also has wonderful uses as well!

Red Mandarin essential oil is great for relieving stress, anxiety, moodiness and fatigue.

The Holiday Gift blend contains premium organic and wildcrafted: Cinnamon Leaf, Spruce, Orange, Vanilla essential oils.
