The winter season is filled with opportunities for relaxation, warmth, and renewal. 

While some of us may not like the colder weather, the darker days can provide a perfect backdrop for getting cosy and keeping our minds and bodies in good working order.

One way to bolster our winter wellness routines is through the use of essential oils, which can be diffused throughout our homes to help us look after our health and keep us in the spirit of the season - without having to face the elements. 

Blending essential oils together in a diffuser is a fun and easy way to scent your home, and can be done using many of the oils you're likely to already have in your collection - so feel free to get experimenting! 

If you're new to the blending game, or simply don't know where to get started, that's okay too. We're counting down some of our favourite winter essential oil blends for you to try this season.

How do you blend essential oils? 

Please note that this will only be a rough guide on how to blend essential oils from scratch. If you're wanting more information on how to blend by scent, note, or function, you can check out our essential oil blending guide.

  1. Select your favourite blend from the options below, and add the suggested number of drops into your diffuser one at a time. We've only included 5 drops of essential oil per blend, so you won't waste much oil if you don't like the scent!
  2. Once you're happy with the smell of the blend, feel free to add more drops as desired - but be sure not to use more oil than your diffuser supports.
  3. If you find you really like one blend in particular, you can bottle it using one of our amber glass bottles and save it for future use.
  4. Avoid diffusing your blend for longer than an hour at a time, as too much diffusion can cause increased sensitivity to the oil.
