Winter Wellness: Best Essential Oils for Hectic Days

We get it. Life can be hectic sometimes. Balancing work and family, cooking and cleaning, not to mention the holidays, can be downright stressful. Luckily essential oils are here to help.

We’ve rounded up our favorite oils to help you focus on winter wellness, unwind at the end of a hectic day, or keep your sanity during winter.

Calming the Child

Don’t worry, this one’s for adults too! The sweet and fruity aroma of this synergy helps to promote a tranquil atmosphere. Diffuse it throughout the day or just before bedtime to help calm the mind and slow turbulent emotions. It combines Mandarin, Tangerine and Lavender, and the relaxing aroma of Chamomile Roman.


If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up to help you get through the day, Grapefruit is the ideal choice. It’s sweet, juicy fresh citrus scent can help to lighten up mental fatigue and moodiness.


Not only is Patchouli a popular scent in men’s fragrances, but it can also be used to aid in meditation. Add a few drops to your diffuser to help alleviate nervous tension and worry. It also blends well with another oil on our list: Bergamot.

Let It Go

This blend was specifically designed to evoke a sense of peace and calm.  If you’re experiencing nervous irritation, add a few drops to your personal inhaler and enjoy the aroma of  Tangerine, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Orange Sweet, and Blue Tansy.

Worry Free

Another great blend, Worry Free helps promote a relaxed state of mind, enabling you to cope better with life’s challenges. To take advantage of its fantastic benefits, add a few drops to your diffuser and diffuse throughout the day for 30 minutes on and 30 minutes off.


Tranquil combines many of the oils on this list, like Bergamot and Patchouli, to create a soothing, pleasant blend. Use it to help to reduce worry and its effects as well as promote a feeling of ease and wellbeing.

Clary Sage

A fantastic KidSafe essential oil, Clary Sage has an earthy, fruity and floral aroma. In addition to being a go-to oil for women’s issues (which we all know can make life even more hectic),  it helps create an atmosphere that is balancing and calming when emotions are rampant.


Bergamot can actually be found in many of these featured essential oil blends and for good reason. This KidSafe oil has a citrusy and fruity fragrance with a warm spicy floral quality, perfect for winter wellness emergencies.

A favorite for many essential oil users, the wonderful aroma is known for its ability to help boost the mind and ease your worries, especially during times of sadness and grief.

  1. I absolutely love calming the child, but will definitely be trying some of these other ones for sure!

  2. I take a medication that requires I stay away from drinking grapefruit juice (one of my favorites… waaa!). Does anyone know if using grapefruit EO would be counter-indicated as juice is? I would not be ingesting it in EO form. Thanks.

  3. I love grapefruit have always been my favorite oil. I used for a lot of things. I rub on my fist or a long day. And mix with Clary sage for that time of the month. My favorite pick me up.

  4. I will be putting grapefruit and bergamot in my upcoming orders. I can’t wait to try them out. I have patchouli and really like it.

  5. I love bergamot and patchouli and use them for uplifting my mood and bringing peace to my mind when my thoughts are difficult to control. I have considered purchasing clary sage for a while- it sounds like it would be a great addition to my oil collection!

  6. Yay for Bergamot being good for stress. I did not know this. I love earl grey tea and so maybe that is why! I want to try and diffuse this at night for my son. Thanks!

  7. I am going to add calming the child for next time, I have tranquility and mixed with another single blend it smells amazing and calming

  8. One of my go to oils is Grapefruit!!!! But I just got Tranquil and Worry Free and Love them both!!! They are now my “Stress Relieving” oils!!! Glad to see that there are others for me to try as well!!

  9. I absolutely love Calming The Child! My girls love it too, that was their requested oil for the day today (which we probably all needed, honestly)! Grapefruit is also one of my personal favorites!

  10. I love these blends, beats buying all the singles and I can’t wait to try them after my husband’s gives what I have been buying during these sales!

  11. Tranquil has been a very helpful oil for me this past month. We have suffered a couple of losses in the family and I regularly diffuse it. I am going to try some of the other oils listed that I have as well. Thanks!

  12. I really like the smell of Calming the Child…for me AND my pre-teen drama queen! I just ordered Worry Free to add to our calming collection. Clary Sage is on the wishlist…maybe I need to move it closer to the top?

  13. I love Tranquil! This is a great list of feel-good oils! With winter here, we tend to go crazy on the STAY HEALTHY front, but this is a good reminder to think about mental health too!

  14. I’m so excited to have found this blog! So many great ideas. I will be trying the Let It Go self-made blend above, as I have everything needed.

  15. My husband and I both have a super busy semester of school, work, and internships starting in January, so I’m excited to try out some worry-free!!

  16. Great topic as the holidays could def be hectic. One of my friends had “Let it Go,” diffusing at a little gathering and OH MY, its my new favorite I couldn’t get enough! Def going to get this one in a BIG bottle 🙂

  17. Calming the Child didn’t do a thing for us, but it smelled lovely, so I used the whole bottle and really enjoyed it.
    Tranquil, on the other hand, has been a miracle… that would be my number one recommendation for anyone who enjoys using essential oils.
    It works beautifully during family movie time, at night for sleep, and added to baths for relaxation.
    Started buying the bigger bottle and won’t be without it! 🙂

  18. Worry free and Tranquil are both so relaxing in the house when things are so hectic and we are trying to stay well. They are my go to synergies.

  19. Tranquil is really amazing! These are all wonderful suggestions! I love grapefruit, I have found like very uplifting and calming as well.

  20. All great oils, but I wish there were some fun new recipes attached here! Always looking for fun new ways to enjoy! Anyone have ideas to share?

  21. Let it Go has always been my “go to”, and I really enjoy the smell. I would like to try a combination of the listed oils and
    I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for using the single oils in a blend for diffusing, and if so, what the ratio/blend would be.

    1. Hey EO Mama 🙂 the Let It Go synergy is very similar (almost identical) to one of the popular MLM eo companies blends. I don’t use those MLM companies products, but have friends who do, and a lot of them are really great blends, and I’ve tried to recreate them. Try this for Let it Go: you need a small, empty, clean EO bottle, 15 Tangerine, 15 Orange, 10 Ylang Ylang, 5 Patchouli, 2 Blue Tansy. Tansy is expensive, if you don’t have that, use a chamomile. Mix and let sit for a day, then give it a try. You can always tweak it if you want a little more woodsy, add a couple more patchouli, if you want a little more earthy, add a couple more tansy, etc. Then if you like it, next time you can double or triple the recipe to make a bigger bottle. Hope this helps! 🙂

      1. Thank You! I am going to try this as well. I was just ready to get rid of my blue tansy because I didn’t like the smell of it alone and didn’t know what to do with it! I am mixing this up tonight!
