How to Safely Use These Winter Blends

Add these blend into your electronic aromatherapy water-based diffuser or to a tea light burner. Depending on the size you may want to double the recipe or half it. And always play with the oils to create a scent that’s perfect for you – use these blends as a place to start. 

If you really enjoy these scents, you can use them topically by mixing with a carrier oil or unscented lotion, cream or balm. A good rule of thumb is to mix about 6-10 drops of pure essential oils with one ounce of carrier oil (about 6 tablespoons of carrier oil) to get a safe dilution. Always patch test to make sure there is no irritation before using on the full body.

Now, cuddle up and enjoy. If there’s a blend you are loving, share it with us in the comments section.
