Holiday Blend

The aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and orange blend to make a sweet, spicy aroma perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

10 drops Ginger
20 drops Cinnamon
3 drop Nutmeg

Directions: Add your oils to a dark colored 5 ml glass bottle and mix well by rolling the bottle in between your hands.

The blend of Frankincense and Myrrh have a warm, rich, spicy aroma. The following directions are for creating a diffuser blend, but it is also lovely to use with potpourri. It is also a wonderful blend to use for the Scented Greeting Card & Tissue Paper recipe or use on the Scented Hot Pads

25 drops Myrrh
25 drops Cedarwood Oil (optional - to lighten the aroma a bit)
25-30 drops Orange (optional - to add a sweet, fruity aroma to the blend)

If you would like to make a larger quantity, multiply the recipe above and add to a larger bottle.

Scented Greeting Cards & Tissue Paper

Scenting your wrapping paper and greeting cards adds a wonderful touch to the holidays or any gift-giving occasion.

Directions: Allow an extra day before writing out your greeting card(s) or wrapping presents. Choose a blend such as the Eternal Noel Blend, blend Frankincense and Myrrh, Sugar & Spice blend (above), your own creation, or a single essential oil. Put a few drops of the blend onto a cotton ball.

Put up to 15 cards and the cotton ball in a large Ziploc bag, close and let it sit for at least 24 hours.

Take care not to let the oil come in direct contact with cards or envelops as the fresh oil could stain them. For boxes of cards, you may also have enough room to just put the cotton ball right in with the box.

For tissue paper, follow the same procedure, but place the cotton ball into the plastic package of tissue paper.

Be careful not to let the oil come into contact with the paper. Close the bag up so the aroma can properly scent the tissue. Refrain from giving a scented card or scented tissue-wrapped gift to anyone who has allergies or sensitivities that may be affected by the oils.

Scented Hot Pads

If you have time, sew a Hot Pad filled with a scented mixture of herbs. When placed under a hot teapot or casserole, the pad gives off a spicy aroma while protecting the table top from the heat NO TIME to sew, NO PROBLEM.

Buy a hot pad or two with holiday design at your local store.

Before use, sprinkle any of your favorite essential oils: Christmas Spirit for a heart-warming holiday feeling; Eternal Noel, Grapefruit or Orange for the deliciously fresh taste. Then place the hot pot on it and see - I should say SMELL - what happens!

If you prepare these hot pads in advance, place them in a plastic bag to seal the scent. Remove just before use - keep them in the bag for at least 24 hours or longer.
