The best oils for holiday diffuser blends

Everyone’s nose is different! While there’s no “best” holiday oil for a diffuser blend, there are a lot of popular aromas that bring us together at this time of year.

The spicy aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg are classic holiday scents—exotic yet comforting. They might remind you of a warm kitchen full of fresh-baked holiday treats! Or maybe you love the crisp, piney aroma of evergreen trees, or the sweetness of orange and peppermint.

Surrounding yourself with your favorite scents can put you in a good mood, refresh your energy, or set the tone for a quiet evening. And if you’re hosting a holiday party, it can make your guests take a deep breath and say, “Oh, what is that good smell?”

Here are four diffuser blends that bring out our favorite scents of the holidays.

1. Warm Spice & Orange Diffuser Blend
