5 Must Have Essential Oil Blends for Winter
Essential oils are a great way to bring the fragrances of the winter season into your home!
In South Florida, we miss out on the changes in seasons. Our weather consists of “hot and humid” or “a little less hot and a little less humid”. Occasionally we get a brief “cold front” but it’s gone as fast as it started.
Down here, we rely on seasonal decor and fragrances to get us feeling festive. I try to avoid all of the hidden ingredients in artificial fragrances and have turned to essential oils instead. They are the most natural fragrances on the market derived from the fruits, seeds, flowers, bark, stems, roots, leaves or other parts of a plant. These oils have been used for centuries for both their healing and aromatic benefits.
Before you buy an essential oil be sure that it is 100% pure, natural, AND of the highest quality, making it appropriate for use in. This might take a little research on the brand, but I promise it’s worth the effort.
Not all oils are created equal. And more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality. Some companies pay their distributors 40% of the price of the oil, making a 40% mark up to you, the consumer.
I love Plant Therapy for their high quality oils. Plant Therapy’s standards of quality are some of the strictest in the industry. They also have organic and Kid Safe lines and synergies (blends of more than one essential oil). I have tried quite a few brands, and the fragrances of Plant Therapy’s oils are by far the best! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
AND they always offer free shipping!

If you can’t tell already, essential oils are one of my passions! This is the diffuser I have in my home. I love the sleek look of the wood and they have many different styles!
I diffuse oils all day every day! On most evenings, I diffuse Lavender to promote rest and relaxation. So basic! But especially at the end of the year, I love the oils that remind me of each holiday and season!
I put together this list of my favorite oils for the winter season! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
