Cozy Diffuser Blends For The Home

"Stay at home my heart, and rest. Homekeeping hearts are happiest."

- HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

The temperatures were in the 40's this morning, delicious! I lit the candle in the little pot bellied stove early today, to bring a semblance of warmth to the room. I try to reserve this ritual for times when we gather a as a family to enjoy spending time together, but in this season I find it hard not to long for it more often. My dream is to have a wood stove some day, both for heating and cooking, but who knows if that will ever be?  So for now I take joy is this small thing.

I've been experimenting recently, creating cozy scents for my diffuser and thought I would share a few of my favorites with you today.

❊ COZY HOME
- 4 drops lemon essential oil
- 4 drops orange essential oil
- 4 drops peppermint essential oil
- 4 drops rosemary essential oil

❊ HOME SWEET HOME
- 4 drops fir essential oil
- 3 drops orange essential oil
- 2 drops cinnamon essential oil
- 2 drops vanilla essential oil

❊ LET'S STAY HOME
- 3 drops cedarwood essential oil
- 3 drops lavendar essential oil
- 1 drop orange essential oil

I've been slowly growing my collection of oils.  Thankfully I prefer "cozy" scents like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and vanilla, and orange plays prominantly in my favorite blends so I keep plenty of these on hand, especially in this season.  I'd like to learn how to produce my own oils and I've added that to my list of things to do in the new year, but now store-bought will do. If you use a diffuser and have a favorite scent, be sure to let me know in the comments.  I have a growing list I want to try and I am always looking for a new favorite!

And now is time to tend to the needs of the day, my friends!  Keep it cozy, and I'll meet you back here soon!
