Whether you’re looking to do something fun with a loved one or need a thoughtful gift for someone, these holiday diy crafts are sure to entertain and impress.  

Holiday Decor DIYs

Deck the halls with these fun, aromatic holiday DIY decor. 

Christmas Floral Arrangement

Add a festive aroma to a faux flower and include it in your live floral arrangement. Try pairing reds and greens in your floral arrangement, such as red roses and carnations, holly, eucalyptus, a few sprigs from the Christmas tree and perhaps a few pinecones for added holiday affect. 

What You Need

  • Flowers

  • Foliage

  • Faux Flower or Foliage

  • 10-15 drops Candy Cane Lane Synergy Blend

How To

Arrange flowers and foliage in a decorative vase. Add 10-15 drops of Candy Cane Lane onto your faux flower or foliage. Refresh oil and flowers as needed.

DIY Paper Christmas Trees

Papercraft Christmas trees are easy and inexpensive to make. They also add a nice, festive touch to holiday gifts. What’s more? You can infuse them with a festive Christmas Tree essential oil by spitzing them lightly using our natural holiday room sprays. Try crafting trees with different colors and sizes to create a diverse and beautiful forest. 

What You Need

How To

Cut 20-30 circles out of your cardstock–start with a small circle and cut our progressively larger circles. Then, cut wedges out of each circle until your paper circle resembles a flower with rounded petals. Stick your skewer into the base and insert your bead, then the largest paper circle, then another bean and the second largest paper circle–continue so on until you’ve run out of paper circles. Cut off any remaining piece of the skewer using good scissors and glue a bead to the top.  

Easy Garland Diffuser

Easy, breezy and fun, this wintery garland will be the cherry on top of your holiday decor. Hang it across your mantle, over a banister, along your doorpost or on the wall.

What You Need
  • Felt Leaves

  • Twine

  • Clothespins 

  • Friends & Family Synergy Blend

How To

Cut twine to your desired length. Pin felt leaves to twin using clothespins. If you can’t find felt leaves, cut leaves out of green felt. Try a pointy leaf shape, like that of holly, and glue small red circles to the base of your leaves to make felt holly. Make loops with the ends of the twine and hang on hooks. Add a few drops of Friends & Family to your garland and refresh the oil as needed.

Naturally Scented Pinecones

With this simple DIY, you can still enjoy scented pinecones even if you’ve banned synthetic fragrances from your home. Plus, with a few added touches, you can make a lovely and festive potpourri that will wow guests.  

What You Need

How To

Arrange your pinecones and items in a decorative bowl. Add 10-15 drops of Spiced Chai Latte, depending on your desired aroma strength. Place in the center of your table or on a console table. Enjoy the warm and wafting aroma of holiday spices. 

Holiday DIYs For Body Care

Winter DIY Body Scrub Coffee

Shed dry, dead skin with the help of a nourishing, festive-scented sugar scrub. Unlike scrubs that contain microplastics and harsh micro-abrasives, this scrub contains gentle, exfoliating and environmentally-friendly coffee grounds and sugar. Match that with nourishing Jojoba oil and skin-clarifying turmeric powder, and you have yourself the ultimate winter skin aid. You’re also going to want to gift this to the skincare-heads in your life. 

What You Need

  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder 

  • 1 tbsp Liquid Castile Soap 

  • 1 tbsp Jojoba Oil

  • 2 tbsp Coffee Grounds

  • 18 drops Sweater Weather Synergy Blend

How To

Combine turmeric powder, coffee grounds and sugar. Separately, combine castile soap, Jojoba oil and Sweater Weather. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix, then transfer to an airtight container. For a longer shelf life, avoid getting scrub wet by using a spoon to scoop out scrub.

Forest Fresh Lotion

While we love the crisp, winter air, our skin detests it. But with a little help from a skin-saving moisturizer, you and your skin can enjoy the cool winter days. Our Forest Fresh DIY Body Lotion is just the thing. What’s more? Forest Fresh doubles as a unique and powerful respiratory aid. 

What You Need

  • 8 oz Unscented Lotion Base
