Yes, I love winter, the holiday season, and all the spices, smells, and fragrances that go with it. That’s why I prepared a list of the best essential oils to have in winter. If you’re such a fan as I am, I’m sure you’ll love this list of winter essential oil diffuser blends!

Okay, you can actually use these essential oil blends in your DIY skincare recipes as well. I sometimes do, but they’re mostly more appropriate for body oils and butters than anything facial related, as they’re really strong.
