During the holiday season, Oils of Life is sharing some gifts with you – the 12 Days of Oils! Here are some of our favorite holiday oils and tips for use during the festivity of Christmas and the Winter months. Congratulations to Laurie Fischer from South Dakota who was the winner of the Essential Oil Diffuser!
12 Days of Oils
Day 1 – Holiday Joy
Holiday Joy is about to become your next favorite Christmas tradition. It’s a blend of all of the warm, sweet, scent of the holidays. Uplift your soul and warm your spirit with holiday joy.
Try this: Enhance your Christmas spirit while decorating, wrapping presents, or entertaining by putting some Holiday Joy in your diffuser.
Day 2 – Frankincense
Frankincense is often called the “King of Oils”. Its soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. Orders in December that have 200 PV or more will receive free 15 ml Frankincense (Please see doTERRA website for all the details).
Try this: Rub Frankincense on your hands and feet after a long day of shopping for a warming and soothing effect.
Day 3 – Serenity
There is no doubt that the Christmas season can bring on some stress and anxiety. doTERRA Serenity can help create a personal escape as it calms, renews, and reduces tension.
Try this: Serenity is a wonderful choice for your diffuser, aromatherapy jewelry, or to add to a bath.
Day 4 – Breathe
‘Tis the season for colds and congestion, but doTERRA Breathe can help minimize the effects of seasonal health issues and make for easier breathing.
Try this: Rub Breathe on your chest or feet when you feel like seasonal threats are near.
Day 5 – Cassia
Cassia is the sister to Cinnamon, so it is warm and spicy. Besides its digestion and immunity benefits, Cassia is also a great ingredient for foods such as entrees, breads, and desserts.
Try this: Replace cinnamon with Cassia in a holiday recipe to spruce it up and provide internal health benefits.
Day 6 – Myrrh
Ancient records show that Myrrh was deemed so valuable that at times it was valued at its weight in gold. Myrrh essential oil is derived from the gummy resin of the small, thorny Myrrh tree and has been used for centuries for its internal and external health benefits. You can save 10% on Myrrh in December (Please see doTERRA website for all the details).
Try this: Myrrh can be diffused to lift your mood, or can be added to toothpaste (cleansing) or moisturizer (reduce fine lines & wrinkles).
Copaiba, similar to Black Pepper, can help soothe anxious feelings and, when taken internally, supports a healthy immune and cardiovascular system.
Try this: Add 1 to 2 drops of Copaiba to warm tea to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.
Day 8 – Balance
During the Christmas season and all seasons, feeling grounded and balanced helps you be present and grateful. doTERRA Balance promotes tranquility and helps balance emotions.
Try this: Diffuse Balance in your car during a long road trip over the holidays to promote a calming, soothing environment.
Day 9 – Siberian Fir
The scent of Siberian Fir smells just like Christmas so there’s no surprise that it is the first ingredient in the Holiday Joy blend. The woody scent of the Siberian Fir is made from the needles and twigs of the tall evergreen conifer.
Try this: Diffuse Siberian Fir during the holidays or add to the salt dough ornaments that you hand on your Christmas tree.
Day 10 – Lemon
Lemon is one of the most versatile oils, and the top-selling doTERRA oil. In the winter season, lemon oil is often used to combat the effects of an itchy or sore throat and support healthy respiratory function.
Try this: Lemon oil can be included in a throat spray or throat syrup to keep the throat moist, reduce inflammation, and cleanse toxins.
Day 11 – Slim & Sassy
With the New Year around the corner, Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend is designed to boost your metabolism and manage hunger cravings when combined with exercise and healthy eating. Get your New Year’s resolutions kick-started!
Try this: Add Slim & Sassy to your water before working out for a revitalizing energy boost.
Day 12 – On Guard
The last thing you need is to be sick or have a sick family member over Christmas! On Guard, one of doTERRA’s best selling blends, helps protect against seasonal threats and can help maintain a healthy immune function.
Try this: Besides diffusing, you can also add On Guard to water for an all-purpose non-toxic cleaner that can be used all around the home.
