Christmas Essential Oil Blends

Christmas is coming… and a whole lot sooner for us soap makers!  In fact, the big day is less than 7 weeks away!  I can’t believe that.  I know that so many of you are already working hard on getting your Christmas product line together.  Whether you are selling your soaps or simply creating soapy gifts for your loved ones, now is the time to start manufacturing your bars to allow ample cure time before packaging.

Today, I thought that I would share with you a few of my wonderful Christmas essential oil blends.   I hope that you enjoy them!

Here’s a picture of me in the Soap Making Resource warehouse testing the aroma of my blend that I just created in one of our jars.

 Christmas Essential Oil Blends

The first blend:

2 parts orange essential oil
3 parts anise essential oil
2 parts cinnamon leaf essential oil
1 part frankincense essential oil

By the way, if you need a refresher on how to interpret the “parts” above into a usable essential oil blend, check out this old blog post.

Here’s another one:

5 parts fir needle essential oil
2 parts cinnamon leaf essential oil
2 parts nutmeg essential oil
3 parts amyris essential oil
2 parts black pepper essential oil

And one more…

3 parts peppermint
2 parts cinnamon leaf
1 part all spice essential oil

Soap Making Resource carries a large variety of more than 40 therapeutic grade essential oils  If you want to try one of the blends above, be sure to check out our selection of the finest essential oils on the market.

By the way; can anyone think of any names for these blends?  That’s always been one of my biggest struggles.  I’m terrible at coming up with creative fragrance names.  If you have any ideas, feel free to leave them in the comments section below!  I thought a good name for the last one I shared with you would be 3…2…1… Christmas!  The other ones I’m stumped on though.

    Mmm, I can almost smell these… yum! How about Christmas (or Holiday) Spice? Winter Wonderland for the fir blend? Candy Cane? :) Lots of fun names you could come up with…

    For the first one, I like what Nina said…Holiday Spice.

    The second one is very similar to a blend that I have been using for a couple of years I call it Christmas Pine because it reminds me of all the smells in the house around Christmas(tree, peppermints, cinnamon, ginger). Piney, spicy, warm and inviting. I have a batch that I am really excited to cut into to see what it looks like.

    Nice blend choices. I have really been enjoying your blog and tutorials. I just bought indigo recently and can’t wait to try it out.
