Winter Diffuser Blend Recipes

Winter is the perfect time to cozy up at home and create a warm and inviting atmosphere. One way to achieve this is by using a diffuser to fill your space with delightful scents. Whether you're hosting a holiday gathering or simply enjoying a quiet evening by the fire, these winter diffuser blend recipes will help set the mood and create a sense of comfort.

Essential oil diffusion is the process of dispersing the aromatic molecules of essential oils into the air, allowing them to be inhaled and absorbed by the body. This method of using essential oils is known for its therapeutic effects on the mind and body.

Tips for diffusing essential oils

  1. Choose the recipe you are going to try below.
  2. Refer to the operating instructions that accompanied your diffuser if this is the first time using it.  Each diffuser is a little different. 
  3. When diffusing essential oils around pets, children and elderly be mindful of where your diffuser is placed and use less drops of oil.  You also never want to enclose an animal in a room and allow them the option to leave the room if the scent is too strong.  Their sense of smell is a lot stronger than ours!
  4. Open your diffuser and notice the little pad on the bottom.  This is the ultrasonic unit that disperses the essential oil into teeny tiny drops into the air.
  5. Add the drops of essential oil and fill with tap water to the water line. No need to use distilled water.  Filling past the water line usually will stop the diffuser from working.
  6. Place the lid back on and choose your settings.  Most diffuser have the option to have lights on or off and have an intermittent setting.  The intermittent setting is especially useful around pets and small children.  The diffuser will run for a few minutes and shut off for a few minutes rather than running continuously.

You will need an essential oil diffuser and essential oils.

I am a Certified Essential Oil Specialist and use doTERRA essential oils because of their pure tested standard.  Every drop is third party tested for purity and they have no additives or synthetics. The essential oil industry is not well regulated.  Despite what you read on the labels, most essential oils on the market are fragrance oils that contain additives and synthetics and have no therapeutic benefits. 

If you are looking for pure essential oils grown all over the world in the environment they grow best then you may want to consider doTERRA. 

Get started with the ➡️Aroma Essentials Kit.  It comes with a beautiful diffuser and 10 popular essential oils and blends.  If you shop with my link I make a small commission at no extra cost to you.


Also pictured is the diffuser I have used in my living room for years.  It has a large capacity and runs for a long time.  I never recommend you buy your essential oils on Amazon though.  It's too easy to empty and replace the essential oil in a bottle and the buyer is none the wiser.
