I was looking for something good to diffuse to help lift my mood and catapult me into the holidays. Not like it's hard to find something good to diffuse in my house! I grabbed Black Spruce and Sweet Orange - 3 drops of each in my diffuser. It had such a lovely aroma that filled my house. With four dogs that's a good thing! Just kidding. Believe it or not, they're not stinky. You can also add cinnamon and nutmeg to this blend for a little spicy note.
It feels like we blink and the holidays are here. Where does the time go? We get stressed while we try to get into the spirit. I know for me the struggle is real. But I put some music and my diffuser on and enjoy the creative process of making aromatherapy necklaces and diffusers. By the way, if you're trying to keep the calm during all the holiday hubbub, a little lavender or frankincense with sweet orange will work wonders. Bergamot, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Jasmine, Mandarin and Ylang Ylang are good choices too. Chamomile, lavender and marjoram make a lovely calming blend. So take in the aroma and keep the calm. :)
