One of my favorite parts of the Holiday is creating a home that feels warm, festive, cozy and inviting to friends and family. I grew up in a home where I always enjoyed “coming home” for the Holidays. Our home always had a calm and peaceful feeling and it has always been important for me to recreate that in my own home for my family. Sharing ways to bring Holiday Spirit into your home too.

WAYS TO BRING HOLIDAY SPIRIT INTO YOUR HOME
You can create a peaceful and festive ambiance in your home with these 7 ideas to bring the holiday spirit into your home.
- Have a clean and organized home. This will help you feel calm and peaceful without having all of the disorganization around you.
- Add some festive lights and holiday decor. The addition of decor and sparkly holiday lights bring a special feeling into your home. Turn off the lights and enjoy the softer atmosphere the lights bring.
- Make your home smell like the holidays. Fill your home with beautiful scents that bring the holiday spirit immediately. The sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more so than any of our other senses, and can bring back good memories of holidays in the past.
- Bake some special treats. Treats and favorite holiday recipes can be a great way to connect holidays with good memories.
- Create some fun family traditions. Traditions create a sense of belonging and unity in families. Traditions can be something to look forward to and help increase the holiday magic in your home.
- Play music that makes you feel happy. Music has the ability to create emotion and set the atmosphere in your home.
- Create happy memories. All of the above are great ways to use all of your different senses to help you and your family and friends create great memories you will cherish for years to come.
doTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS
I have teamed up with doTERRA Essential Oils to share some of their fun holiday oils. If you have been following me for a while, you know how often I love to use oils in my home for all sorts of things. So naturally, I was super excited to work with doTERRA because I have been using their oils and products for years.
USE AN ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER
To make your home smell like the holidays and to help create a soothing, peaceful environment use a diffuser to fill your home with a holiday scent.
I love this beautiful diffuser from doTERRA. Not only is it beautiful in it’s design and physical appearance, sleek and modern, but I love the soft white glow it emits.
There are two settings for a softer or a brighter white light and two settings for a soft pink light. I love the mood and the atmosphere it creates while allowing you to add your perfect combination of essential oils.
HOLIDAY SCENTED OILS
I love that doTERRA has several essential oils and blends to choose from to create the perfect scent for your home. You can choose scents from peaceful and calming to a more strong and invigorating scent. They are perfect for helping you create the atmosphere you desire in your home this holiday season.
doTERRA FRANKINCENSE OIL
Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils, Frankincense oil has extraordinary health benefits. Its soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. Combine Frankincense essential oil with essential oils like Bergamot or Lavender and inhale or diffuse to create an experience of peace and satisfaction.
- Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
- Rub Frankincense on your hands after a long day of gardening.
- Apply topically to help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.
- Massage Frankincense oil on the bottoms of feet.
doTERRA HOLIDAY PEACE BLEND
Discover your grounding foundation in the delicate tones of Holiday Peace with the calming aromas of three firs—Siberian, Douglas, and Himalayan—complimented by Grapefruit, Frankincense, and Vetiver. Holiday Peace will help you find the calm during your busy holiday season. Diffuse Holiday Peace or apply topically to your skin during family gatherings and holiday prep to keep the atmosphere peaceful and merry. The harmonious blend of Holiday Peace will help bring a tranquil and serene feeling to your home during the holidays.
- Diffuse to uplift mood and create a serene atmosphere during the busy holiday season
