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 a Defender Roll-On nearby. The bright and fruity blend is a great way to support a healthy immune system while also uplifting your spirits.
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 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.
‘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 Toy Soldier diffuser while diffusing Toy Soldier. 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.

Great ideas! Sweet slumber and Nighty night are favorites in this house after a busy day of celebrating!
Very nice info
Such great suggestions!! Sometimes I need a “jump start” ideas, thank you for the “spark” to generate gift ideas!!
The kids line also makes great gifts and stocking stuffers for adults! I use them all the time.
Plant Therapy oils – Wonderful all year but especially at Christmas!
Great ideas! I might have to get the Toy Soldier blend.
I love doing all kinds of DYI projects especially when they involve natural products like Plant Therapy!!
Can’t wait to try to make this!
love all these products
I am new to using essential oils. My daughter knows a lot she is teaching me
I’m new to Plant Therapy, looking forward to trying several oils!
I love that I can use the aloe jellies and make my own hand sanitizer with PT’s awesome oils instead of using harmful sanitizers from the stores that have nureotoxins in them. I feel good about using PT’s products and that I can have a toxic free hime. THANK YOU PT!
Yes, I’m looking forward to making some for my grandchildren!
I should try the defender sanitizer, I love DIY projects especially when it involves Plant Therapy!
Toy Soilder has become my new favourite perfume. The sweet smell took a few days to get used to as i have never purchased sweet blends like it before. Now i love it and hope it stays beyond Christmas.
Toy soldier sounds fantastic
Got a good head start ordering for Christmas gifts! Can’t wait! Best Hemp CBD oil I’ve tried. Took to Disney World with us, and we all had wonderful nights sleep! Just ordered more!
Can’t wait to try Toy Soldier
Holiday blends make it really feel like Christmas! Love it
Looking forward to giving this to my daughter so she can use it with her son.
I am planning to make the defender hand sanitizer with my little one today. We have our favorite Zombie Blood on hand to make this DIY sanitizer.
I absolutely love the kidsafe winter set… Toy Soldier is my favorite… I have a question about the diy hand sanitizer, what can I use in place of the defender?
Germ Destroyer is another great KidSafe option or you can use Germ Fighter if it’s for the adults.
I never even thought about using essential oils on tree ornaments. Thank you for this great idea!
Very informative! With great options!
appreciate the suggestions
As always, very informative and useful information.
Love these festive sets! they bring out the best of holiday!
The holiday blends are always great, I buy them every year!
LOVE the idea of diffusing the Christmas blends while enjoying Christmas movies, stories, and activities! Thank you.

Lots of fun holiday scents!
Love Plant Therapy oils!
Love that you share so much knowledge and inspirational ideas, too!
PT always has the best DIY post! My goto blog when looking for great DIY ideas.
Diffusing EO while reading Christmas stories! Great idea!!!
Ik vind ze allemaal heel interessant, kan niet wachten om ze stuk voor stuk te gaan proberen. Zeker nu het winter is.
Plant Therapy, thank you over and over for great EDUCATIONAL OIL CONTENT and now sharing creative ideas for FAMILY!
So Great for making our homes smell Wonderfull for the holidays!!!
Love the idea of holiday oils! Can’t wait to see what you release in the spring!
I just received this great, new, kid safe set. Can’t wait to enjoy it all winter long!!!
Great holiday ideas!
I love the hand sanitizer recipe. With the extra interaction with family and friends this time of year, germs can spread so easily. I will be using the santizer for sure. And the holiday blends… oh… how much I can’t wait to get mine and diffuse these to get into the holiday spirit!
Love all of these ideas! Winter sets are amazing!
Love the hand sanitizer recipe!
Can’t wait to try these!
Love the animal diffuser. Want to make the hand sanitizer too.
Definitely need to make the hand sanitzer!
Can’t wait to try the hand sanitizer
Fun things to try with the grandkids! And the girls all love essential oils already. (The boys haven’t decided but like the playdoh we made)
These winter oils are so cute!! Wish I could get them all!
Waiting to try them! Very excited
It’s easy to get caught up in the health benefits of the individual essential oils and forget the wonders of the smells and blends. Thanks for the reminder! Can’t wait to try some of these!!!
Love these receipts and ideas, going to use some very soon.
Great information. We have used your oils for several years and love them.
Awesome holiday ideas! Thanks so much!
I have all the ingredients to make the hand sanitizer, so I will definitely be making that today!
I’m so intrigued by toy soldier now!
Will the germ sanitizer leave your hands feeling sticky?
Nope, it won’t leave you feeling sticky. The aloe jelly absorbs quite quickly.
love the hand sanitizer recipe. I think I will be making that one very soon. Thanks for the idea
thank you for all the great info!
I love the idea of the Defender Hand Sanitizer. I definitely want to put this on my “try this” list with EOs.
Fab, thank you!
Absolutely loving the new holiday scents
Great family ideas. What a fun idea to also have a certain oil for story time at night. They will always connect wonderful memories to that scent!
Great ideas! Thanks!
So I read the “content”, but no question came up for the 10 points.
The question should pop up on the original rewards page after it opens the content in a new tab. But if you’re still having trouble, please reach out to our customer satisfaction team at [email protected]
Love these ideas~
I love incorporating essential oils into the holiday festivities. So many great ideas here.
Plant therapy are my favorite oils! My dad and I ordered these together and he was so happy because another company we were ordering from was way more expensive and wasn’t any better!!! He has passed now so Plant therapy oils and the diffuser will always be a special memory for me.
Love all the holiday scents!
I dont have kids but we use it with my brother ! Love it!
I just purchased the merry Xmas set of 6…just couldn’t decide which one to get. I can’t wait to get and share with Family!
Love the hand sanitizer!
Wow! Lots of great ideas, and simple to do.
Cant wait to make these winter recipes!
These are cute for sure
I was soooo looking forward to ordering and diffusing some of these until I realized some of the oils may not be good for my “old Lady” puppy to breath in. Sadly, the house is open floor plan and she is my shadow. Not sure how to have “Holiday” smells in the air and still be safe for her.
I understand wanting to enjoy some holiday smells around your pup. Here is a chart with all the Pup & Pony approved oils that you can use to create your own blends. Cardamom and Nutmeg could add some spice to some woodsy or citrus oils. Or you could use Peppermint or Spearmint with Fir Needle to capture some of the fresh and wintery smells. Also, our Candy Cane blend is Pup & Pony approved.
The hand sanitizer will come in handy with all of the germs at work! And I can’t wait to order Winter Friends!
Love the ideas for holiday diffusing and use of oils
Thank you! Great information!
How true that scents help to recall a memory. I recall the smells of vanilla and cinnamon when I was child brings back memories of baking with my mom. Now that she is gone, I bake with my daughter the same recipes my mom and I use to do.
I’m looking forward to the Winter Friends set. I love how scents can set the tone for a lovely holiday.
Love the holiday information=))Thank You=)
Holiday Scents are my absolute favorite! I love seeing all the different varieties!
This makes me so excited for winter!!!
Such great ideas!!!
Thank you for you post!!! an amazing set!
Can’t wait to make the zombie blood hand sanitizer. I am pretty sure this is going to go in a few stockings this year.
Very nice! Now im all enthused and started my shopping cart!
Soooooo many uses!
I really like this time of year
Love the holiday information.
Defender is in my cart for this winter. Hand Sanitiser sounds great for it!
Respir-Aid also, don’t forget that!!!
Going to order Winter Friends for sure!
Entire Family LOVES PT oils they are simply the best! Getting ready for winter as well as gift -giving with all your new offerings, thanks.
Oh, we should check out the defender blend! We’ve definitely been living on Immune Boom already this year.. I mixed it with lemongrass eucalyptus though because I am not a fan of the smell.
Holiday/season scents are my favorite! Loved reading these and getting more oily knowledge !
I can’t wait to make the hand sanitizer! Does it burn at all, especially if little ones rub their eyes soon after applying?
It shouldn’t burn the skin, especially since Defender is diluted to 1% in the Aloe Jelly and it uses only KidSafe oils. But you’ll want to keep your little ones from touching their eyes after applying.
Love everything I have purchased so far!
Off to try some new seasonal oils
I live in Australia. We are in summer presently.
Neat idea with the holiday blends! Do you sell these in stores to smell the different ones?
Yes, these blends are in our retail locations in Boise and Twin Falls, Idaho.
i totaly enjoy plant therapy essential oils. they calm, energize, or what ever the need is for me. thanx plant therapy!
Great ideas! I bet Toy Soldier smells yummy
I will be making the hand sanitizer with Defender. I already added it to our liquid hand soap. It smells amazing!
Love the Holidays…hate the weather. Which is why I like that I can diffuse some Germ Fighter during the cold season and have my house still smell like Christmas 🙂
I love the Holiday scents, really adds to the Holiday spirit.
Interested in the Holiday blends. May have to try them out this year.
So excited to try kids range
Thanks for the sanitizer recipe. Great idea.
Love your oils and they are of great quality.
I love the idea of diffusing EO”s during story time before bed to tie a scent to the memory of it. Best idea ever and I will definitely be ordering a blend to try this during this holiday season! Thank you so much for the idea!
Very creative names for the holiday blends!
Am I the only adult who gets super excited the night before Christmas? I’m going to have to apply this kid friendly tip for myself to have sweet slumber 🙂
So excited to get Winter Friends in the mail and try some of these recipes.
Cant wait to try the zombie blood hand sanitizer recipe!
So excited for these new holiday blends! Just ordered Toy Soldier 😉
Cute Winter Friends headbands! I’m thinking that if I used thick paper to make them I could add a drop of a fun winter oil to be a passive diffuser too!
So excited for Christmas. This post gives me all the feels
The little forest friend diffuser is so cute!
I just ordered the Winter Friends set and am very excited to get it! The scents sound like wonderful blends that we’ll be able to enjoy all season long.

Ash a substitute teacher I am always getting sick and have been looking for a way to avoid the hand sanitizer. This is fantastic!!!
