The holidays can be a magical time for everyone, but especially for children. Santa, presents, snow days, Elf on the Shelf, and decorating the tree all make for a special, wonderful time of the year. Adding essential oils to your holiday traditions can make for magical and memorable experiences that your little will cherish for years to come.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to the mall to visit Santa’s Village! Whether or not you opt for the overpriced professional pictures, your child will still remember sitting on Santa’s lap, telling him what they want this year and getting one of those tiny little candy canes. But a trip to a busy mall also means lots of crowds and lots of germs going around. Help your family stay healthy during the holiday season by having this easy Defender Hand Sanitizer on hand. All you need is some Aloe Jelly and our Defender blend (also known as Zombie Blood)!
What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:
Pour Aloe Vera Jelly into a flip-top bottle. Add 18 drops Defender. Shake well to mix oils. Use a dime-size squirt of the gel as needed on your hands and rub in.
Holiday movies are a fantastic way for the family to get into the holiday spirit. There’s everything from the classics like A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman to slightly more recent favorites like Elf and Home Alone. Whatever movie you choose, we have some fun and festive new KidSafe Holiday Blends to go with it! Say hello to our Winter Friends Set. It includes three brand new KidSafe blends for the holiday season, each named for a favorite Christmas character.
Blitzen’s Blend: On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen! Evoke a festive Holiday mood and bring to mind the pitter-patter of reindeer footsteps on the roof with Blitzen’s Blends. Pink Grapefruit, Lemon SD, and Tangerine combine for a light, citrusy scent that uplifts the spirit and lightens fatigue. Juniper Berry and Coriander Seed round out this festive blend that will be just what you need to stay awake all night on Christmas Eve.
Toy Soldier: Be as steadfast as a toy soldier with this sweet, candy-like blend that sets the perfect mood for all your Christmas festivities. Lemon, Orange, and Mandarin Green Essences combined with creamy Vanilla and Copaiba Oleoresin make a sweet, tart, citrusy blend that is both uplifting and cheerful.
Abominable Snowman: Looking for the legendary creature of the North? You might find him hiding in the crisp, wintery woodsy aroma of the Abominable Snowman blend! The woodsy scents of Balsam Fir and Blue Cypress combine with a hint of Spearmint, tangy Bergamot, and soothing Roman Chamomile to give a boost to the senses and support healthy respiration.
‘Twas the night before Christmas… These are words we all know and love. A holiday storytime before bed can be a unique and special moment to share with your children. Adding essential oils can add a special touch to the experience and help tie the memory with that specific aroma. Our Forest Friends Diffuser offers a fun and safe way for your little ones to enjoy essential oils in their rooms. It includes three diffusion settings, a nightlight, interchangeable ears, and soft music to fall asleep to.
To create something special for the holidays, combine one of the Winter Friends blends with its coordinating Forest Friends Headbands! These headbands can be easily printed off at home and colored in by your kiddos. Then they can enjoy an Abominable Snowman diffuser while diffusing Abominable Snowman. How fun is that!
Sleeping Under the Tree
For kids that love the idea of catching Santa delivering presents on Christmas Eve, sleeping under the tree is a special treat! They get to put out cookies and milk and try their very best to stay awake while they stare at the twinkly lights of the tree.
To help them fall asleep and get a good night’s rest before the day’s festivities, try adding Nighty Night or Sweet Slumber to a diffuser in the living room. Or if you have clay ornaments, you can add a few drops of your sleep blend to help them drift off.
Christmas without cookies? Never! Decorating Christmas cookies and holiday treats are a fun way to get creative, embrace the holiday spirit and indulge in some extra sweets. While your family is setting up everything for the gingerbread houses and sugar cookies, try adding Toy Soldier from our Winter Friends Set to your diffuser. The citrusy sweet candy-like aroma will complement the delightful aromas coming from your kitchen.
