Photo by: Aleksandra Tanasiienko

Spicy, warming, cozy, and uplifting! Add this simple blend to an essential oil diffuser, a pot of simmering water on the stovetop, or to a tea kettle atop a fireplace to make your entire home smell amazing. 


  • 10 drops sweet orange essential oil
  • 3 drops cinnamon essential oil
  • 2 drops cardamom essential oil
  • 1 drop clove bud essential oil
  • 1 drop ginger essential oil

Tip: you can transform this into an aromatherapy spray by placing the essential oils into a 2oz bottle, and fill to the top with water, Shake well before misting.

P.S. If you don't have some of the essential oils, that's totally okay ~ or, if you feel as though you'd like a little less orange, a little more ginger, or would like to add some nutmeg or allspice, go for it!  This recipe is totally adaptable and will still smell festive and wonderful!
