Festive Christmas essential oil blends to make your house smell like Christmas! These printable essential oil blends charts show you what combination of essential oils smells like Christmas.

When I think of the holidays, my mind turns to fresh evergreen wreaths, Christmas carols, peppermint candy canes, wrapping gifts, baking cookies for Santa, and all the twinkling lights. 

It’s a magical time of year when anything seems possible. And if you’re lucky, you might just feel like a kid again! 

I’m a sucker for all the cheesy holiday fun, a Christmas lights tour in our pajamas, cutting paper snowflakes, drying oranges, sipping hot cocoa overloaded with marshmallows by the fire, making cinnamon dough ornaments, and more. 

When the holidays are here, I swap out my fall essential oil blends for the best Christmas essential oil blend recipes. Fresh evergreen scents, sweet peppermint, and warming blends like cookies baking in the oven are where it’s at! 

Because diffusing essential oils blends that smell like Christmas is the fastest way to make your home feel festive. You can stick with the classics like my Christmas Tree Farm blend or level up with Camp Christmas, an airy, spicy, sweet blend, or a romantic recipe for Mistletoe. 

But they’re not just for diffusing – you can use these Christmas essential oil blends for soap, candles, DIY room sprays, and more holiday crafts. Just be sure to increase the amounts to fit your project.

What combination of essential oils smell like Christmas?

How do you make your house smell like Christmas with essential oils? Start with essential oils that give us that festive holiday smell when combined. I began making this list of essential oils before I started putting my blends together.  

Best Christmas Essential Oils:





Northern Lights Black Spruce





Clary Sage








Idaho Blue Spruce




Can you mix any essential oils?

Yes, but it’s more about “what essential oils smell good together?”. And it’s most easily answered by using an essential oil blending wheel. Similar to a color wheel, an essential oil blending wheel helps us understand the relationships between different aromas and how our brain processes them. 

To create appealing essential oil blends, you want to choose oils that sit next to each on the blending wheel. So, use this list of essential oils that smell like Christmas with the blend wheeling to create countless combinations.

Diffusing Christmas Essential Oils Blends

If you’re new to diffusing essential oils, you’ll be delighted to know it’s straightforward. All you need is a diffuser, water, and a few drops of essential oil to infuse your kitchen, living room, bedroom, or entryway with Christmas essential oil blends!

Where’s The Best Place To Put A Diffuser?

I know all too well that finding a good space for a diffuser can be difficult. I’ve learned that it’s not really about decor. It’s about choosing the best place to reap the aromatherapy benefits of a diffuser. Yes, I am guilty of choosing an essential oil diffuser for its looks and choosing a spot to use it because it looked good there. 

But, you’ll be less likely to use your diffuser if it’s not where you or your family are often. And the same can be said for your essential oils. If you keep them in a box in your closet – how often are you really going to use them? 

So, take some time to think about where you and your family frequently spend time in your home and how you can creatively store your essential oils for ease of use. I share several storage tips for oils here and have a few ideas in the Oily Chic Lookbook

Here is a list of some of the best places to put a diffuser:

  • Living Room Sofa Table
  • Kitchen Island
  • Bedroom Night Stand
  • Entry Way Table
  • Bathroom Vanity
  • Coffee Bar
  • Office Credenza 
  • Portable Diffuser In The Car
  • Kids Playroom Bookshelf

Once you’ve found the perfect location, or locations in our family’s case, for an essential oil diffuser, store essential oils, you will use most often there. And why not tuck these Christmas blends charts nearby?
