If you enjoy scents that remind you of Christmas trees, gingerbread, and candy canes then you are going to love bringing these Christmas essential oil blends into your home.

In this guide, you will find a list of the perfect essential oil blends for Christmas and easy ways to use them in your home. You will also find a free printable to keep your recipes handy for when you want to get into the Christmas spirit.

I couldn’t agree more that, “The smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood”. Christmas smells evoke nostalgia of baking and decorating cookies with my Mom, picking out the perfect Christmas tree each year, and wrapping presents while singing carols. It really is a wondrous time of year like no other. My hope is that these scents bring you a bit of Christmas spirit this year.

The smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood.

How to Use Your Christmas Essential Oil Blends

The perfect way to use these essential oil blends is to use a diffuser. This will slowly diffuse the Holiday scents throughout your home. The best diffuser I have found is the 5 in 1 Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser. It features a large and easy to clean water tank and can run for up to 16 hours!

You could also add a few drops to an arrangement of pine cones or clay ornaments to add fragrance to your home. Or add the essential oils to a personal inhaler or diffuser bracelet to take the wonderful Holiday scents everywhere you go!

I also love using these essential oil blends in a DIY Room Spray. It’s so easy to put together and makes a great gift too! Follow this simple recipe using your favorite Christmas essential oil blend:

DIY Room Spray Using Essential Oils

This natural room spray using essential oils will make your home smell amazing!

Prep Time 5 minutes


  • 1 oz witch hazel (amazon)
  • 1 amber glass spray bottle with funnel (amazon)
  • essential oils
  • 3 oz distilled or spring water


  1. Pour witch hazel into the bottle.

  2. Add your essential oils and put on the lid. Shake well.

  3. Add 3 ounces of water. Put the lid back on and shake well again.

Recipe Notes

You can use witch hazel or another clear alcohol of choice (vodka works well). The witch hazel or alcohol helps to mix the essential oils into the solution (since water and oil don’t mix). It also helps to disperse the mixture into the air.

Wrapping it Up

I hope you enjoy these Christmas essential oils!
