Christmas essential oil recipes can improve your mood and really clean the air. They are great for lingering food odors and negativity. And during the somewhat stressful Christmas season, there is something we can all use to lift our spirits.
We don't always have the chance to get a massage, but most of us can spread the delicious scents of Christmas essential oil recipes to cheer us up.
In a previous post, I mentioned how Christmas essential oil recipes have a positive associative callback. Which means that a particular scent from our past can bring us positive feelings.
This is another benefit for improving mood.
How To Use Christmas Essential Oil Recipes
My favorite way to infuse our home with the healthy scents of Christmas is by using these Christmas essential oil recipes in the diffuser! This is how each recipe below is written and will show you how many drops we use for a 150ml diffuser, feel free to add or adjust as needed.
By diffusing with a cold mist or an ultrasonic diffuser, it disperses the oil and water microparticles in the air. You will benefit from the aromatherapy of oils and the ionizing and humidifying effect of water vapor. And the absence of heating or combustion means that the properties of the oils are not degraded.
Isn't that the cutest diffuser ?! Click here to order it from Target while it's in stock!
You can also use these Christmas essential oil recipes topically as long as you are take the necessary precautions for your skin and mixed with a carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil or coconut oil. Some of the recipes below would make amazing massages or body oils after showering!
Read on for some of my favorite Christmas essential oil recipes to make spirits sparkle this season.

If you need a basic scent, this is the one for you. It brings those warm, fuzzy feelings of a sweater that wraps around you. Sandalwood essential oil is known to be an antidepressant and a sedative, so I like to diffuse this scent to clear a negative mood and give myself a hug.

10) Christmas tree
I love this scent the most among all Christmas essential oil recipes for decorating our Christmas tree. The rich tree scent is a signature scent for the season.

After the holidays and before the children return to school, tensions can be high. Everyone was locked inside, in each other's spaces and faces. It's like the song says "and mom and dad can't wait for school to start again!" One of the main constituents of white fir is limonene, which is also found in oils of citrus fruits like lemon and grapefruit. Diffusing a mixture with white fir can induce feelings of stability and calm.Spark Naturals
11) Fire in the fireplace
Black spruce essential oil is anti-anxiety, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Historically, spruce was used to heal wounds and to fight scurvy.

If you thought that being pregnant was a one way ticket to frumpsville - think again ! It’s time to embrace those extra curves and rock'n'roll your bump. This is your opportunity to get creative with your clothes, and to create a look that will take you right through to the birth of your little one.
You may not remember the last time you saw your feet, but trust us, right now you look amazing, and it’s time to show the world !
Your changing body shape gives you free reign to try out a whole range of styles that you would never have considered BP ( before pregnancy ). Of course, it’s important to balance feeling comfortable with looking totally awesome, but by getting the basics right you’ll be rocking your own pregnancy style before you know it.
In recent years many more retailers have started stocking maternity ranges, so you can still site your favourite brands such as H
The great thing about your bump is that you don’t have to spend a fortune, a few key pieces will provide the foundation of your pregnancy look, and you can then build it up from there.
A comfortable pair of maternity jeans - there are some great ones on the market right now, choose from styles that go under your bump, or ones that go over it – these may make you feel like Simon Cowell, but you’ll be super comfortable, and no one else will know ! Darker coloured pantalons are great for both daytime, and for evenings out.
Maternity vest tops – these are worth grabbing in a few colours as you’re sure to wear them again and again throughout your pregnancy. As they keep your bump covered, they’re perfect for layering with favourite non-maternity items such as blazers and open shirts.
Put together an effortless weekend look by combining your maternity jeans with a black vest top, and then accessorise, accessorise, accessorise ! Add pops of colour with accessories such as circle scarves and chunky necklaces to sweat your look together. Pair this with a blazer and pumps if you fancy looking a bit smarter, or stay casual with an open shirt over the top and your favourite trainers.
If you’ve always run scared of stripes, now’s the time to embrace them, they’ll look amazing on your bump. This is the time to show off your bump, and a tight, striped top or dress will do just that.
So that’s your causal wardrobe sorted, but how about work ? If you’re starting to panic on a Monday morning as you try on every item in your wardrobe to find something to wear that not only fits, but is also suitable for work, we can help.
Pencil skirts are your new BFF, well at least for pregnancy anyway. These beauties will keep you covered up, complimenter your bump, and you’ll look amazing wearing it. Simplify getting ready for work even more by opting for a pencil dress, that way you don’t even need to worry about matching it with a top – sorted !
Wearing wrap dresses, and jumper dresses is also a great way to allie looking smart at work, but staying comfortable.
Planning a night out, but have no clue what to wear ? If in doubt, keep it simple. In the photo above Giovanna Fletcher is off to meet Prince Charles, and looks amazing in a black dress and black pumps. As stunning as her outfit is we’re pretty sure it must be very comfortable too, and if that’s good enough to wear to meet royalty, it’s definitely acceptable to wear on a night out with our friends.
Of course, one of the most important parts of your pregnancy wardrobe is an item that won’t be on display, that’s right it’s the humble maternity bra. The importance of this essential bit of coffret is not to be underestimated, especially as it’s not just your bump that will be growing bigger !
A well fitted, comfortable maternity bra will keep you supported, without digging into you. During pregnancy underwired bras are not recommended, so having the right support is even more important. Don’t forget to get measured regularly, as your bra size is likely to increase a few times during your pregnancy. Whatever your maternity style, the main thing to consider is how you feel in what you’re wearing, if it makes you feel good, and it’s comfortable then go for it.
