Each evening I’ve been lighting my favorite candle for this time of year, my spiced cider candle. Mmmm. Mmm. I love how it makes my home feel warm and cozy with it’s gentle flickering light while it fills my kitchen with it’s yummy aroma.
On the other hand…
I’ve been consciously looking at my candle and thinking, this thing is totally unhealthy. I love candles but the fact that they’re filled with toxic chemicals and fragrances is very uncomforting.
I started wondering if I could make a similar scent with my essential oils and guess what…it was so easy. And the scent is soooo much better than the candle ever was. AND we can all breathe freely, knowing the essentials oils are healthy and even beneficial to our bodies.
It’s a win win win! <wink>
So here’s my little recipe.
Spiced Cider Essential Oils Scent
Into your home essential oils diffuser add:
- 3 drops Clove essential oil
- 3 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil
- 3 drops Nutmeg essential oil
- 6 drops Orange essential oil
- 6 drops Lemon essential oil
That’s it! Now your home will smell amaaaazing.
And your husband will come home from work very disappointed that you don’t actually have some hot apple cider simmering on the stove. (Sorry Hubby…)
And honestly you can probably do just about any number of drops from those five oils and it will come out smelling wonderful.
Do you have some great essential oil home scents to share? If so, I’d love to try them!
