The festive, nostalgic aroma of dōTERRA Holiday Joy is in the air. Enjoying the fresh scent of Christmas straight out of the bottle is wonderful, but are you wondering how else to use it? Here are some practical ways to soak up this delightful seasonal blend, including a fun craft idea!
First, fill a small glass spray bottle with 10 drops of Holiday Joy. Fill the remainder with water, then spritz it up! You can spray this mixture right onto your Christmas tree, garland, or wreath, over a bowl of decorative pine cones, and throughout your home. Another option is to add 1-2 drops directly onto each pine cone or into your homemade potpourri. Just don’t be surprised if your visitors close their eyes, inhale deeply, and begin sharing their sweetest holiday memories with you upon entering your home!
Spritzing those notes of fresh fir, delicious nutmeg, and sweet vanilla throughout your living space was easy. Now you can try making some dōTERRA Holiday Joy scented ornaments. Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup baking soda
½ cup cornstarch
½ cup water
10-15 drops dōTERRA Holiday Joy
In a saucepan, heat together all ingredients but the oils over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Once mixture has thickened into a dough-like consistency, remove from heat and mix in oils. Add glitter or food coloring, if desired. Roll cooled dough onto a cookie sheet and cut with cookie cutters. Use a large toothpick or skewer to make a hole in the top of each shape. String twine or ribbon through the hole to hang the ornament. (Recipe from The Essential Life)
As Holiday Joy fills your home this season, breathe deeply and savor each precious moment with family and friends. These just might be your newest favorite holiday memories in the making.
