We spend a lot of time indoors during the winter months.

Think of all that exhaled air you’re re-breathing – the need to purify, cleanse and refresh the atmosphere around you becomes critical. Fortunately, you can do so easily with essential oils.

Next, create a blend for greatest effect. Blending and usage tips:

  • A mix of oils will be more interesting and aromatically effective.
  • Combine a leafy/herbal oil, a resinous/woody oil and a fresh citrus oil to achieve a balanced aroma.
  • Use the blend in a plug-in or portable diffuser, or combine with water in a spray mister bottle to powerfully purify and freshen the airspace around you.

Experiment to find your favorite blend, or follow one of these easy recipes:

Purifying Eucalyptus Diffusion


5 drops eucalyptus

5 drops frankincense

5 drops lemon

Balsam Fir Needle Purifying Room Spray


8 drops balsam fir needle

8 drops myrrh

8 drops sweet orange

2-4 ounces water


Place oils and water in a spray-mister bottle, shake vigorously and mist airspace in room. Repeat as needed.

    • Hello Melissa. Due to FDA regulations, we cannot legally prescribe essential oils for a medical condition. We recommend consulting with a natural health professional who can offer advice based on your specific needs.
